Ear on TV: Week of April 2

I mentioned before that the UK has a habit of overhyping acts, so I find it surprising that there's such 'little noise' from across the pond about the wonders of The Noisettes. The soulful (yet ruckus) punk trio make their US television debut tonight on Late Late Show With Craig Ferguson, and are worth seeing purely to watch singer/bassist Shingai Shoniwa work the stage in her short short skirt (see video.) The UK act is currently supporting another Drake fave TV on the Radio on tour through Texas and parts East (enter to win free tickets.)

Elsewhere, Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond, Jr. has made a very pleasant sounding solo release (Yours To Keep,) and makes his (Strokes-less) tv debut on Late Night With Conan O'Brien. Also check out appearances from Clap Your Hands Say Yeah (Conan on Wednesday,) and a second week in a row for Bloc Party (this time on Last Call With Carson Daly on Friday.)
