Listening Post



I'm not sure what's more surprising, that this isn't a group right out of the 60s soul era or that these guys aren't a British band paying homage to the retro acts of the 80s that paid homage to the 60s soul era -- à la ABC or the Blow Monkeys.

From right here in the states -- Los Angeles, in fact -- here's Fitz and the Tantrums with MoneyGrabber.

I ran across this song a few weeks ago on one of the auxiliary MTV channels that still plays music videos, and it was just too fun not to do a little living room dancing. Might be kind of dangerous to listen to in the office, though... unless I feel like frightening my coworkers on purpose.

Yes! Thanks for posting! I've never heard of them and they're playing in my town next month! YAY!

Dude, thanks a ton for posting this one; these guys are brilliant. I've been trying to nail down that bass tone for years, heh…

You know, Chris, I'd actually love to see that.
