Chicago HipSkaHop-Ish Band | Kids These Days - Hard Times EP

Jessica, WUW?'s most recent addition, grew up in small town just outside of Chicago. She argues that the two best bands of all time are The Roots (we all agree) and The Mighty Mighty Bosstones (we all laugh). So with this in mind, it is not a shock that she loves this new band - cosigned by Questlove of the Roots - who combine hip hop, rock, jazz, soul, funk, and a little bit of the beloved ska sound to combine something smooth but exciting. 

They sound something like what the Gym Class Heroes would if GCH were all talented musicians. If you like what you hear, check out the article in the New York Times and then watch their energetic performance on Conan.
