This word doesn’t get thrown around so much in relation to Tangible Excitement, but my record collection is definitely calling these guys a supergroup: 1/4 Summer Cats, 1/4 Boyracer and 1/2 Lucksmiths. Need I say more? Indiepop fans are already clamoring to get their hands on this ridiculously fun release. I like the upbeat jam, “Puzzle Pieces;” it’s the best jangling pop tune you might not have heard yet…feel that groove. For those of you not familiar with the participating acts, just spend about 12 minutes indulging in the delightful pop waiting at the click of a button. Then, be a good human, and go grab the 7″ from Emotional Response!
Seeing as we’re throwing a party featuring all things Australia/New Zealand, I thought I would stick to the area and bring some jangle pop your way via Melbourne’s Summer Cats. This number has got me bopping around my room right now, and you can tell why the energy in this tune makes it a live favorite. I bet they’ll play it during their various shows at SXSW! In the meantime, the tune comes your way on a new 7″ from Slumberland to be released on March 16th. It’ll be the B-Side to the single for “Your Timetable” off last year’s Songs for Tuesdays. Go ahead, tap your feet; you know you wanna.[audio:http://austintownhall.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/summercatstv.mp3]
