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 Last.fm 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"::

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}::
