"After Party", is the band's recent breakout hit. It's catchy, and oh-so alt-rockish radio-friendly. I highly recommend taking a few minutes to give it a listen... if for no other reason than so you'll be able to identify it when you do hear it on the radio - because, trust me, you will. Two additional tracks worth mentioning are "Si Senor" and "Miracle" because they really showcase CKC's incredible versatility. While "Si Senor" draws much deeper from the group's hip-hop roots, "Miracle" feels more like a alt-pop ballad with great vocals and a very interesting sound.

“Raleigh - The Saturday night crowd has begun to pile into the Oxford in downtown Raleigh. Men get drinks for their women, or women they hope to soon call their women. The younger crowd nervously checks cell phones for text messages. Some slip away in groups to the ladies room. House music thumps at a level still conducive to conversation. By 10 P.M., 200 people have filed in. It’s doubtful that many of the suits and downtown diners who frequent the pub for lunch ever noticed the stage; it’s small and pushed to the corner, like the shy girl at a fraternity party. Right now, however, everyone surrounds it in anticipation. ”
