The Explorer's Club and more...

Well, the Andrew Bird show last night was a bust, but not a complete bust. The last of the tickets sold to the kids directly in front of us in line, so we didn't see the show...mainly because we didn't feel much like paying the scalper's premiums. But...MJ and I had a great evening of drinking with Eric of Marathon Packs. Can't say enough good things about this guy. A real music historian and scholar, and an excellent guy to boot. Hopefully, the first of many good nights with time we'll try to actually see a show.

It's Super Bowl Sunday and we're just kickin' back watching Arena Football, snowboarding and the NBDL to get psyched up...riiiight. Oh, and last night's SNL. Prince was pretty solid...the skits were not. I'm debating skipping the Super Bowl all together and checking out She Want's Revenge at The Melody Inn tonight. Are they worth it? Is that basphemy? I'm just kinda in a Super Bowl slump.

Maybe we should try some 60's style/Beach Boys-esque pop goodness to put us in a shiny mood. The Explorer's Club sound like Southern California psyche-pop harmonists, but actually hail from the opposite coast in South Carolina. These Beatles/Beach Boys/Zombies sounds are nothing new or groud-breaking, but these songs and sounds still transcend all ages and ears and are universally enjoyable.

The Explorer's Club - Priscilla
The Explorer's Club - I Lost My Head (Demo)

A couple bands the other blogs are blogging about (see YANP for more):
The Melody Function were formed on a hot Kentucky night in the fall of 2004 over large amounts of Budweiser and Beamish and a love for indie music. The sound of this 3-piece outfit fuses elements of psychedelic mod rock with twee and pop "Yeh-Yeh". Lots of good indie bands and tunes coming out of Kentucky these days kids, sit up and listen.

The Melody Function - Roucoulement
The Melody Function - She Goes

Here's another band getting some pub at YANP & Rock Insider...Cold War Kids. Cold War Kids' MySpace. They are from the LA/OC area and have been described as "a distinct blend of Velvet Underground, Walkmen, and Television with some Jack White esque vocal tone."

Cold War Kids - The Soloist In The Living Room
Cold War Kids - Heavy Boots
