Or, the Whale - "Datura"

so I got this mp3 in my email the other day, it's from a country-influenced San Francisco band called Or, the Whale. It's a nice, up-tempo ditty, and while the singer's voice takes a little getting used to, once the steel guitar comes in, I'm sold. Plus the song is about datura, aka Jimson weed, a hallucinogenic plant, which is pretty funny. Here's their Myspace. I also like "Call and Response" on there.

Here's their electronic press kit:
