Song of the Day - October 13, 2006

You have to love these young kids from Port Angeles, Washington. Finishing second in 2004's Experience Music Project's Sound Off, a battle of the bands for musicians 21 and under, The Lonely H used their studio time to record Kick Upstairs. The band's influences are clear: The Beach Boys, Weezer, Queen, and The Beatles. They specialize in harmonically appealing vocals with a clear pop sensibility. There is an overabundance of fun tunes including "Don't Worry," which has a definite Weezer feel; the piano drenched "Lullaby Lane," which evokes Beach Boys, Queen, and The Beatles; and "Family Friends," a song that sounds as if Freddie Mercury and Rivers Cuomo collaborated on this song. Song of the day honors go to album closer "Zelda." As you may have guessed, this song is about the video game, complete with piano, harmonizing chorus, and guitar solo. Click here to listen.
