Wednesday's Song of the Week

With Mayer Hawthorne, Eli Paperboy Reed and Jamie Lidell all coming on to the scene within a few years of each other, I think it's clear that a resurgence of men in suits, horn sections and tunes nostalgic of some of MoTown's classics is here. And I like it. A lot.

Interestingly, it's a gang of skinny white boys who are leading the brigade. And keeping with the theme of skinny white boys in skinny ties (swoon) Fitz and the Tantrums has taken the stage. It's all a little reticent of the Four Seasons slash Temptations slash Jackson Five days and I am digging it. The VGFs have a thing for this style of music. And by thing I mean you pull up a MoTown mix on your iPod and we'll be dancing until 5 in the morning or until someone smashes a watermelon on the floor and overflows the dishwasher. Whatever comes first.

The band played in Boston last weekend. And I missed them. And they'll be playing in Pittsburgh the weekend I go to visit Mojo next month, when I'll miss them again because my flight arrives the next day. C'est la vie. At least I've got Youtube.
