New Saturday Looks Good to Me
Saturday Looks Good to Me (MySpace) immediately brings back memories of the summer of 2003 or 2004 for me. For some reason their albums all hit me at once, all at the perfect time, and all of my car listening time was devoted to the throwback 60s pop/Beach Boys sugary, warm pop ... so thick with hooks and reverb and layer upon layer of wonderful harmonies that the music nearly drowned in its own splendor.
The band is back with a new album, Fill Up the Room, due out on K Records this October 3. From what I've heard, it's a great comeback (where did they go!?), but unfortunately seems to less prominently feature the wonderful, sultry vocals provided by Betty Barnes. Regardless, it'll be a great LP. Check out the first single, "When I Lose My Eyes," and get ready for a last-minute dosage of summer soundtrack tunes!
