Song of the Day - December 15, 2006

At first hearing The Hot Toddies, I was immediately drawn by the sugary vocals of this all girl band from Oakland, California. However first appearances can be deceiving, as a close listen to the lyrics will reveal that these girls are not so innocent. I love the juxtaposition of their sweet harmonies with lyrics that are in complete opposition. Their self-titled EP is chockfull of examples of innocence and naughtiness. My favorite tune is "Jaguar Love," a song that borrows heavily from AC/DC, while adding the beautiful harmonies of The Hot Toddies into a doo wop laced song of intriguing contradictions. Click
