Song of the Day - May 17, 2006

The influence of Joy Division and New Order continue their tremendous impact on the music scene. One listen to South's third album, Adventures in the Music Industry, Journey to Selling Out, will prove the point. As I suffer from Anglophile musical hysteria, the appeal of South should come as no surprise. Opening track "Shallow" definitely is one of the highlights of the album. Starting out with sounds of traffic and a trip to the tube, the song evolves into a beautiful piece of British pop. The guitars have that New Order sound, while the harmony during the chorus afflicts me with a soothing bliss. The appeal is immediate and South will probably gather a larger audience in the near future given that their music has appeared on the O.C.. Click here to listen.
