More Indie Music I Like from Apple Ads:: The Submarines

This is getting rather embarrassing, but it's really pretentious and obnoxious of me to think that I'd be above liking music from commercials -or- that I'd hear of bands before they're used in commercials, so I'll just shut up and roll with it.  One of the bands that was recommended to me on while I was doing this post was The Submarines {MySpace Music site}.  "The name sounds familiar, but I can't place them," I thought.  Just listen to the first few bars of "You, Me, and the Bourgeoisie"::

Yes, it's another Apple commercial song utilized by those hipsters at TWBA \ Chiat \ Day::

Infectious & catchy shoegaze lo-fi pop by John Dragonetti & Blake Hazard.  Here's a link to a free download for 2 songs {verified 23 Sept. 2009}.  Their new Honeysuckle Remix EPs are out & avail. on iTunes:: EP #1 on iTunes }  &  { EP #2 on iTunes }.  I love how their sound is the fruits of a tight collaboration between Dragonetti & Hazard, merging the former's instrumentation and the latter's sense of melody and sly lyrics.

Weeds fans {I must admit, I'm not one} may recognise this great Malvina Reynolds cover, inspired by the Bay Area town of Daly City {I think Agrestic on Weeds is supposed to be the abomination known as Thousand Oaks, where my last dayjob was, although it's shot in Stevenson Ranch}::
