I Don't Know You (2004)

Details Release Date: May 04, 2004; Lead Performance: Lola Ray

On their promising debut, Lola Ray refuse to settle on just one influence -- there's sexy Brit rock alongside world-music tunes criticizing Third World colonialism. But thanks to singer John Balicanta's swagger and an imaginative rhythm section, the variety feels engaging, not erratic. Lola Ray probably won't be under the TRL spotlight any time soon, but that's a good thing.
