As promised, here's a couple mp3s from the debut album from The Like (it is kind of refreshing to find a band that is apparently without a website), entitled Are You Thinking What I'm Thinking?.
UPDATE: These have been up for way too long, so you should just go buy the album rather than download them illegally from me.
I like this album quite a bit, these young girls are verty talented. In a world of Lindsay Lohans and Hilary Buffs Duffs, it is refreshing to hear some quality work from attractive young women.
As this album is available commercially -- and came out less than a month ago to boot -- you really shouldn't steal it. I'm providing these 2 songs in a lame attempt at fan marketing, which is something which will probably get me in trouble if the record label finds out.
For anyone who likes to know about the good bands before they get played on the radio, check out the Los Angeles based three-piece called The Like. Three hot young chicks, a sound I can only describe as "a pinch of Mazzy Star, a dash of The Sundays, some hand-whipped Poe and then a little Veruca Salt added to taste." They said their debut cd comes out tuesday, maybe I'll post an mp3 or two then.
The second opening band is The Ditty Bops, and they have a really nice "old-timey" sound filled with fiddle, standup bass, slide guitar and lots of 2 part harmony. Think a slightly more contemporary Oh Brother Where Art Thou soundtrack sound. They're about halfway through their set at the moment, and I'm now going to give them my full attention
