Fab Four Echoes

Well, summer has arrived in New York, for real, socially and climatically, if not astronomically.  

Up this week:  a suitably summery and melodic pastiche of Late Beatles served up by Philadelphia-based indie trio Jukebox The Ghost.

Formed in college (GWU) in 2003 as The Sunday Mail, the threesome took a 2-year hiatus before reforming as Jukebox with a clearer musical vision.   Their two albums have won favor with critics and other bands, if not yet the public.   They've warmed up for the similarly quirky and late-60s-inflected Tally Hall as well as Ben Folds and Barenaked Ladies..

Gimme Ice Cream! A modest request from Jukebox before playing 'Mistletoe' live at The Hunt in Ithaca, NY. The video for 'Before The Bridge' is every bit as atmospheric as the song...

What could be more Song of the Week that appearing on Letterman? Here they are performing their other single, 'Schizophrenic'
