Thanks to MFR for pointing me to the ACBs’ “Boy Like Me.” It’s a really fun pop song that’s the best I’ve heard in a few weeks.
UPDATE: Turns out the band’s name is actually “The ACBs” not the ABCs. Oops!
MP3: The ACBs – Boy Like Me
With a name like The ACBs, I was expecting something a little more in line with Matinee or Happy Happy Birthday to Me Records. Not so. “Boy Like Me” sounds like an American take on the sounds the British have been mining for about two years now. It’s a bit like the Wombats, but a little slower and more straightforward.
