Yeah, I know it's only February, but I'm surrendering. Next week, Nick Curran & The Lowlifes will be releasing their new record, "Reform School Girl," and I'm going all in. This IS, and will continue to be, the best record of 2010.

From the genius production that will confound you--you'll swear you are listening to some lost, crazy-ass rock and roll record from 1958---to the killer riffage and relentless energy, "Reform School Girl" has been kicking my ass for a few weeks now. I couldn't wait anymore. It's time you heard it, too.

Here's the title track
