You know, every now and then I remember what the name of this blog is, and it occurs to me I probably should post a song that's got some more than tangential connection to the genre.
Also, something recorded in the last couple of years would be nice.
In that spirit, then, please enjoy utterly adorable Antipodeans The Wellingtons and "If We Feel OK," from their second (2007) album, For Friends In Faraway Places
This is an all but perfect pop confection, I think -- winsome vocals, killer chorus, great guitars, blah blah blah, the whole thing sounding kind of familiar (I think I hear Todd Rundgren hovering above it) but not exactly like any other song that immediately comes to mind.
I should add that I discovered it -- and much else, of late -- over at
Peter's Power Pop, a charmingly Australio-centric blog hosted by occasional commenter (and Sugarbombs fan) Peter Scott. There's a boatload of great music over there for your perusal; if you stop by, make sure to say hello.
