“Neo-Plastic Boogie-Woogie”

What is up with these dudes? Every time I go to the Miz for some blazin’ hot trizzaks, all I get is this sissy-pop indie crap. Where’s the RAWK?!?!? Sorry dudes, it’s so much easier to love something fun and upbeat. Honestly, it’s a much easier sell as well. So the latest in a string of fun-loving upbeat pop comes from Brooklyn’s Mahogany. “Neo-Plastic Boogie-Woogie” is Belle and Sebastian gone shoegaze. It’s all summer and sunshine amidst a gray storm of reverb. How they managed to dress such a bouncy, sugar-coated core in such grave scenery (or is it the other way around?) is anybody’s guess, but they did. Sweeping envelopes of guitar serve as the backdrop for handclaps, piano, and other melodic musings, but the playful vocal melody is what really lodges the song into your memory. Trust us, it will be much easier to clap along and smile rather than scoff and grimace.
