New Music: Fitz & The Tantrums

11 Nov

While I love discovering new music and find new bands each week, every once in a while I get completely enamored with a band the instant I hear them (like Black Joe Lewis and The Honeybears) and the latest is Fitz & The Tantrums. I’m fumbling over words in sheer excitement; I just love their sound which is a mix of soul and indie pop.  Their LP Picken’ Up The Pieces is an amazing one from beginning to end and will most definitely be on heavy rotation for me.  Oh and a cool little fact to their rise in the music industry, Adam Levine of Maroon 5 was in a tattoo parlor in NYC and heard the EP; he then invited them on tour. Pretty damn cool if you ask me.

    Very mod..reminds me of a 60’s cocktail party band I want to have, poolside with drinks and umbrellas.

    I’m a new fan, too! Love it — and you must go see Human Nature if you like these types of bands.
