The latest band in my You Gotta Hear This series is a cool-ass Michigan quintet. I first heard them on the O.C., but apparently they've been around for years. Their newest album, Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Room, has been on constant rotation on my i dizzle.
"Good Day", is a tight-ass intro track. It has a funky beat, and it's really catchy. A great thing about the band is that they aren't one-sided or predictable. Every song sounds totally unique and unlike the others. "Haiku," is one of my favs. Really cool, low-key, real tight. Spring and a Storm has a cool bit where kids talk to Mr. Moon. Just one neg though, some of the songs start out weak. But the good thing is, if you make it into 30 seconds of any song, you won't be able to turn it off. Especially "Greener," it starts weak, but it gets real tight.
It's an awesome album. Highly recommend. Enjoy!
