♫ Team Me – Weathervanes and Chemicals

Norway’s Team Me just offered up this jam as a free download so if you haven’t wrapped yourself up in it’s singalong chorus yet it’s time you do. And catch them live too.

[LIVE] SXSW Day 4 Recap + 360° Interviews

Slow Club gives it oh so sweetly.

What can I say about day 4 that wont make you green with St Paddy’s themed envy if you weren’t actually there to witness it? A bonus set by new TBE faves Cherub happened. Plus a lot more varieties of rock (sexy, tender, party, etc). Stay tuned for a proper recap of my favorite shows of the TBE parties but in the meantime read on for the 360 interviews! Read more

[MP3] TEAM ME have a DEAR of a jam and a wombat SISTER to boot

i guess i fell in love with that state of mind

♫ Team Me – Dear Sister

This is a song for getting a little twitchy to. If you don’t know what I mean then catch “Team Me” live and you will. Urgent “oohs”, propulsive percussion, and harmonies that could melt butter all get turned to 11 as this Norwegian sextet pumps the song full of all the energy in their vibrating bodies. I was lucky enough to witness it all go down at The Great Escape and it this track along with their moving slow jams just confirmed my suspicion that these guys are up to something special. Keep an eye out for more, like their new single “Weathervanes & Chemicals.” Oh, and if you do see them live, try to take your eyes off the delightfully spazzy girl in the group. She is Tord from The Wombats’ sister and talent clearly runs in the family.
