Fresh New Music from Saint Motel

Saint MotelHopefully you heeded our advice and caught Saint Motel‘s most excellent live show at Red 7 a few weeks back, but if not, then you’re lucky we’ve got a new tune for you to get ahold of today.  Our friends are currently working on writing new material for their next album, and they’ve allowed us to share the first hit (of many more I’m sure) from said record.  There’s horn’s a plenty, but it still maintains the group’s knack for gang vocals surrounding swelling pop moments.  If you’re down in spirit today, then just one listen will get you going; you should also revisit Voyeur…it’s a dandy.

Stream Voyeur Album from Saint Motel Here!

Long have we praised the work of Saint Motel, so we’re pleased to offer the album stream for the band’s newest record, Voyeur (the album is out now!).  They’ve been generous enough to let us share it with you, but if you’re generous, you’ll pick up the physical copy, which features moving eyes in the sleeve! It’s pretty much a clever pop record that begs to be played again and again, and we’re also happy to announce we’ll be sponsoring the group’s show when they come to Austin on August 4th at Stubbs!  You can listen to the album stream HERE, and don’t forget to support the bands we love–and you love too! In case you forgot how much fun you could have jamming to this band, here’s a sample tune that’s also on the album stream.

New Quirky Pop from Saint Motel

One of the band’s I’ve fallen in love with the last year is Saint Motel.  They’ve nearing the release of their newest record, Voyeur, and I expect it to be all over the place, in only the best way possible.  They’ve tossed some gems our way already, and they’re letting us run another great track, “Benny Goodman,” which demonstrates the band’s playfulness.  I think one of the best things about the group is their willing to throw all conventions out the window, writing catchy pop music on their own terms. Love them or hate them, they do it in their own way, and you better respect that. They’ll be bringing their great live show to Austin on August 4th, so start getting ready.

Great New Pop from Saint Motel

The generous dudes over at Saint Motel sent us this track this morning, and I’m so glad they did.  Some groups just have a knack for writing a simple pop tune that is able to rise above standards and find it’s way into constant rotation in your musical life.  The LA quartet is setting up to release their debut, Voyeur, some time this year, and I expect that it’s going to fall somewhere in the vein of bands like Mystery Jets, carefully writing catchy pop numbers I won’t want to share with anyone but myself.  But, just for today, I’d like to share this one with you.
