Smells Mellow

Stars of Track and Field - With You (3.4mb mp3 from the band's SXSW page, which won't last long)
The sparse verse with breathy male vocals and single repeated guitar notes don't prepare you for the brilliance of the chorus in this tune. It's the simplest, prettiest melody, and a higher voice joins in to harmonize with beautiful results, transforming it from a sort of indie rock ballad into pure, shimmering pop. I hadn't ever heard of the band, but in a perfect world, songs like this would translate into fame and fortune.
