Song of the day: Silver Sun – "Bubblegum"

Before you play today’s song by British band Silver Sun, I’d like to describe their style to you so I can put you in the mood for it.

Picture this: Buddy Holly writes songs for the Beach Boys, and the Beach Boys are happy to sing them as long as Weezer are the backing band.

OK, now press “play”:

“Bubblegum” is track 1 on Silver Sun’s third album, Disappear Here (2005). If you’re in the mood for their audacious Buddy-Holly-meets-Beach-Boys-meets-Weezer-ness, it’s an amazing album. It’s amazing because “Lies” isn’t the only good track on it – the whole album is full of great bubblegum-in-overdrive songs.

As a bonus, here’s track 2:

Trust me: that’s what the entire album sounds like. And I love it.
