The Actual Tigers-"Standing By"

On a slow, lazy, tired Monday like this, it's good to have some fun, spiraling, upbeat indie pop jam to balance things out. Although the Actual Tigers have broken up (but, hey, look! there's a solo project going on which you might also want to check out!), it's still a pleasure to return to the precious album, Gravelled & Green and enjoy the thoughts of them. They sound a bit like the Shins crossed with Cake crossed with Beck like riffs and guitar solos. Or something close. It's amazing how much they could have going on in the background with this jingly melody in the front and all this instrumental details and clever, polished background vocals. It's the perfect sort of front porch or nodding your head in the car type music. And at the moment, it's only too fitting.

In other news, every indie kid's favorite clothing shop is having a $10 sale! Hop on over to Threadless for some artsy/ironic/laugh out loud type shirts and have money left over for a CD or two. Or...just spent it all on shirts. Whichever you prefer.
