Download This: Songs by The Strokes, and others

Rock & roll quintet The Strokes return with the monster-riffing ”Juicebox,” a preview of their forthcoming album. We’re guessing the song has nothing to do with tiny liquid-filled containers. Buy the track on iTunes

Devout followers of Bright Eyes will enjoy the heavyhearted rambles of singer- songwriter David Dondero. ”I’ve Seen the Love” is a twangy toe tapper from his new album, South of the South. Download it for free at Team Love Records

Their name was inspired by drive-by shootings, but The Happy Bullets aren’t that hardcore. Still, the literary-minded indie group hits its target on ”The Vice and Virtue Ministry.” Download it for free at the Happy Bullets site

Anyone interested in rap-rock done right will undoubtedly ”Wanna Know” about this blazing heavy-metal-tinged single from Eminem cohort and fellow Detroit native Obie Trice. Seriously, it’s good. Buy the track at Yahoo Music
