“Love and Crashing” Under The Oax

And now for some proper indie smartrock from Houston. Houston? Yes, Dorothy, Houston, Texas. Inspired by a breakup, band member shakeups, endless canopies of Oak trees and the drummer from Spoon, Giorgio Angelini made an album called “The Distance” and I like it. This should get plenty of college radio love and end up on a bunch of blogs, I predict. It just came out. Like a minute ago. This song is really cool. Enjoy =)

Moneybrother – “Born Under A Bad Sign” mp3

Not a cover of the famous blues song of the same name, this “Born Under a Bad Sign” comes from Sweden’s Anders Wendin, AKA Moneybrother. In a signal of departure from his earlier punk efforts, this opening track from Wendin’s brand new album “Real Control,” was produced by Peter, Bjorn and John of Peter, Bjorn and John fame. It’s a classic bit of Euro-soul, piled high with pop hooks over a bounding disco-rock beat. Definitely on my “summer fun” playlist. Enjoy!
