New Music :: The Bees (U.S.)

Wow, it has been a pretty good while since I have put up a blog. Been kinda busy lately, and also haven't really had much blog worthy material to post. In the downtime I did check out Andrew Bird at the Gypsy with Cold War Kids. Both were really great, Andrew Bird's live show is really interesting. The Four Left Turns also played a rockin' St. Patty's day party for hours and hours on Saturday afternoon... hopefully someone took some shots of the gig so I can post 'em.
Alright, now back to the new music... This band is a recent find and has quickly turned into a favorite of mine - The Bees. The Bees (U.S.), not The Bees (U.K.) - apparently there is another indie alt. country band from the UK called The Bees as well. This album came out in '06 - if I had been aware it then, it would have def. made the Stay Classy Top 20 of 'o6. Maybe would have even broke the top 5. I guess you could say that their sound is heavily influenced by 70's A.M. pop... lots of a harmonizing and sweet 70's synth. Here's a sample of one of their tracks, it's the only one I could find and the quality is kinda rough... doesn't really do the song justice. You can buy the real album on iTunes, and you should because the whole thing is great. Plus they are way under the radar - so you can feel like a cool guy when you enlighten your other music savvy friends on the greatness of The Bees.

The Bees - High Society

Hey Matt! What's up. Just curious how you go about posting songs as you did in this post? If it's not too difficult would you mind emailing me how you do it? Thanks!
