SONG OF THE DAY: TV Girl – “Benny and the Jetts”

TV Girl has this special ability to channel the past without trying to. Hailing from San Diego, the easy going and carefree attitude of California reflects in their music. People have compared TV Girl to the likes of Beck, Panda Bear and Cults. If you like feeling nostalgic, you should check TV Girl out.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT, Last night while all dee alumnz were geddin’ on to 80’s jams and badpop, something very different was dropping over at Synergy house. John Heart Jackie, a Portland based folk group made a stop off their tour to hang out with somebody’s sister’s boyfriend’s cousin, who lives at Synergy. When I arrived, the relatively small living room was full of beaming faces piled atop of eachother, all captive to the lush harmonies provided by these fine folk.

The first half of the show were folk orriginals, frm their new LP, WE ARE GOLD MOUNDS and a few covers. Then they took a break, had a few drinks and came back with some grade A blues and rock jams that satiated the crowd’s obvious need to dance. This went on well through the pre-party hours, until eventually most people made their way over to the Homecoming Dance, where cross generation mixxxing insued. The John Heart Jackie singer was feelin’ it and passed me his album, which we will be spinning in the coming weeks on the station.

We don’t get much “slow” music here at CC, specially on a Saturday night. Wanna hear more?
