Think of a more metal version of At The Drive In. Then grab a guy with a classic-rock style wail similar to Sammy Hagar, and poof you've got Ladyfinger (NE).

The four-piece's most well-known labelmate on Saddle Creek Records is Conor Oberst and Bright Eyes, but the two couldn't be further apart.

The band who added the abbreviation for Nebraska onto their name in order to quell legal issues makes the case that straight-up rock and roll is still possible and can still mean something.

The 10-track disc, "Heavy Hands," highlighted by the sonically stimulating "One Thousand Tongues" and a lack of pretentiousness (see "Too Cool For School"), came out Tuesday.

Ladyfinger (NE) will play a show with another labelmate, Cursive, at the Buffalo Icon on Thursday as part of their nine-date mini-tour in support of their new release.

Check out the band's Web site at ladyfingersucks.com. Three stars out of four.
