Song of the Day: "Let Her Go," the Lodger

Good old-fashioned English guitar rock.

Sometimes you just can't beat the sound of an adenoidal English dude, a bubbly melody and an electric guitar. Case in point: "Let Her Go," by Leeds rockers the Lodger. Taken from the band's debut album, "Grown-Ups," the song finds singer/guitar-player Ben Sidall's charming delivery and plangent chording aided and abetted by some upbeat horns and a simple, propulsive beat reminiscent of British invasion bands like the Kinks and Small Faces.
