Although I wasn’t as hot on their second record as I was obsessed with their first LP, Austin via Dallas’s Strange Boys are undoubtedly one of my favorite bands. I’m very happy to hear a new cut from their forthcoming third LP, Live Music, which will enthrall and captivate us all on October 25th via Rough Trade. Me & You sees them move into a more upbeat piano based direction that I think holds some of the classic songwriting standards that they have injected a definite modernity and stoic cool into, and a certain energy and tempo that was missing from the last LP. That said, this song has been in my head since the first listen & the cutesy feel good video is pretty excellent as well. This bodes well for this band to become one of my favorite things in the world all over again.
