Song of the day

"What A Pleasure", by Beach Fossils.

Despite having a name that would appear to have been created by the ACME 2010 Brooklyn Band Name Generator (TM), Beach Fossils have consistently stood out from their lo-fi brethren, mostly on account of a crispness of tone, a nimbleness of playing and a classiness of melody.

"What A Pleasure" is the title track from a forthcoming eight-song "EP" (eight songs, 23 minutes; that's how we like it). It also, it seems to us, happens to be far and away the best song on it. You can listen to it here (and download the next-best song on the EP while you're at it).
