The M’s

15 Feb

The dilemna? Keep running with this whole anti-Valentines thing that the kids and the nation’s biggest retailers got going on and throw in a little post-Valentines Norwegian death metal today on 3hive? Or try to actually extend the blessed day–after all I do have four Valentines at home–by finding a band whose name had something to do with Valentines Day, other than the Valentines? But what’s this? Chicago’s the M’s have got a new album coming out next week, so today just had to be them and their fuzzy, psychedelic-tinged ode to the music of the 60′s and 70′s, completely unashamed of wearing their influences or their hearts (hearts, get it?) on their sleeves. Happy Wednesday!

    I want to like the M's I really do. I mean, they're a home-town favorite (chicago) and it seems like lots of people are getting into them — but I just haven't found them to my liking. I saw them at Intonnation this year and it just wasn't anything catchy at all.
