Moday Moment of "Where Has This Song Been All My Life?"

From 2003, please enjoy alt-indie-singer/songwriter/rocker Sam Roberts and his thoroughly kickass "Higher Learning."

I knew absolutely nothing about this guy until a few days ago, but apparently he's world famous in Canada (i.e. he can sell out 3000 seat venues in his homeland) and he's got a new album out that's apparently really good.

In any case, this particular song from his major label debut strikes me as the closest thing I've heard in ages to a 21st century version of The Kinks in their earliest 60s incarnation, which is obviously high praise in my book.
