Music Monday! Fitz and The Tantrums: Just Like Heaven

This six man band from Los Angeles is one of my favorite new bands of the last several years. Their third CD was released last June and I did feature one of their songs, but now they went and did a cover of one of the greatest pop songs of all time, the Cure’s Just Like Heaven. 

Have a great Monday! ~Phil

Music Monday! Fitz & The Tantrums

In late October  of 2009 the singer K’naan was scheduled to open a leg of Maroon 5’s tour but had to cancel due to fatigue. According to band founder Mike Fitzpatrick, “Adam Levine of Maroon 5 was in New York to get a tattoo and his favorite tattoo artist had downloaded the record after hearing us on the radio. He told Adam, ‘you gotta hear this band.’ A week and a half later we’re opening for Maroon 5 on their college tour.” That’s not a bad way to get discovered eh? Here’s their new, unbelievably catchy song Handclap.

Have a great Monday! ~Phil
