Band of the Day!!
Today's band (like a number of bands I've already recommended) comes to us from the Pacific Northwest, Seattle to be specific. They are the Fruit Bats! I saw the lead singer a couple of years ago, opening for Iron & Wine. And while I was a little more impressed with Band of Horses (may be a future recommendation, I haven't decided yet...) and a little disappointed with Iron & Wine (they were good, but I wished that it was only the main guy, not a full band), Eric Johnson's songs grew on me. Marin liked him and the band right from the start, so that helped, and I listened more. Now, they're my band of the day! So give them a listen. They're upbeat, happy, and have a couple of love songs, and a couple of songs about unicorns. You'll love them. I promise.
