Make Your Ears Happy! February 19, 2016 Edition

Frightened Rabbit – Death Dream
Location: Selkirk, Scotland

A minimalist description: A slow, melancholy song showing off another of the band’s strengths.
Caveman – Never Going Back
Location: Brooklyn, New York, USA
Select Previous Posts: Empire, Over My Head, and In the City
A minimalist description: A straightforward rocker, with great vocals, and a solid chorus
Weezer – LA Girlz
Location: Los Angeles, California, USA
A minimalist description: Sure, I gave up on Weezer ages ago, as they became more gimmicky and destroyed their legacy. But this song shows they can turn back the clock – which is all most people seem to want of the band – and can produce a Blue Album / Pinkerton-era great. And yes, the song sounds a bit like No Other One (from Pinkerton).
Stars – Streetlights
Location: Montreal/Toronto, Canada
Select Previous Posts: No One is Lost, From the Night, Hold On When You Get Love and Let Go When You Give It, and our interview with them (both of them!)
A minimalist description: Stars do Kanye West – need I say more?
