Help me identify a song currently on the radio!

I've heard a song on the radio a couple times in the past few weeks, and I've been completely unable to identify it. I've tried google, radio station playlists, humming it into midomi, but no dice. Here's what I can tell you:

- I am almost certain the song is a new release given that I heard it a few times recently.
- I thought the chorus had the repeated line "got nowhere/place to go," but google seems to disagree.
- The singing has something of an old-timey feel (something along the lines of the sample in Moby's song "why does my heart feel so bad?)." Not sure if it's a man or a woman.
- Instrumentally, it features a lot of short "cut-up" bursts of different instruments, I think including a harmonica fairly prominently. It has a steady, driving beat, perhaps with a little swing to it. It has a pretty herky-jerky feel to it.
- I heard it either on KFOG (104.5) or Live 105.3 (or both) in the SF Bay Area.

That's pretty much all I remember, and it's driving me crazy. I'd love to hear what else the band has done. Help!

If you have a smart phone, grab the free Shazam app. It tells you what's playing anywhere. Extremely handy.

Not Killy Kill or Can't Hold us, unfortch. I'll definitely shazam it the next time it comes on...

I can't help you with the name of the song, but both radio stations have very detailed playlists posted. kfog even lets you play clips of most of the songs they play. Live 105.

Try emailing radio people with time. They might help.

This is a longshot, but the vocal sample you mention makes me think of "Good Feeling" by Flo Rida.

I know exactly the one you're talking about, it's by a french band but I can't remember their name. I've heard it on Live 105 too.

It's C2C - Down the Road!. Found it via Talk to me Goose's link to the playlist.
