New songs for April 8th 2015

here they are:

"My Type" by Saint Motel: Indie-pop hasn't been this disco-fied since the days of Scissor Sisters (and that was about a decade ago)! The saxes that blare in the beginning of the song already let you know what a groovy ride you're gonna be in for! I feel like Saint Motel released this song one season too early, given what a summery vibe it has (although there's really nothing wrong with that). Beneath "My Type"'s funky fever, though, there are some very tongue-in-cheek lyrics. For instance, during the chorus, the lead singer declares that the subject of the song is "just his type" simply because she "has a pulse and (she's) breathing". "Love comes wearing disguises" and "double check for double meanings" are other clever lyrics that the song has to offer!

"Quarterback" by Kopecky (formerly The Kopecky Family Band): When was the last time you heard a song beginning with the letter "Q"?! Actually, it was rather recently, with Paul McCartney's "Queenie Eye" from just two years ago, but other than that, it's been quite awhile! The word "quarterback" itself is pretty unique for a song title, given how I haven't heard that word in any other song title yet. This song is probably the most fuzz-guitar heavy that the typically bubbly Kopecky have gotten so far. The subject matter is a bit darker than most of their material as well, with the words "lies that you told me" being the central words in the chorus. Rest assured, though, Kopecky fans will probably still enjoy this song, as it is a catchy song with a melodic sound.
