Probably the most (only?) bFM-friendly track I've picked for theaudience, 'Dream Date' is a perfect fuzz-pop tune from Christchurch band Salad Boys. Rising from the ashes of T54, Bang! Bang! Eche! and The Dance Asthmatics, Salad Boys have perfected their surf-tinged garage jam.
Most of their tracks hover around the 3 minute mark: straight and to the point, and no waiting around for the hook to hit you, which I like. I generally don't fall for tracks that place the vocals so far back in the mix, but the foregrounding of the SUPER catchy guitar riff in the chorus of 'Dream Date has wooed me. They're also playing 31 May at the Fancy New Band Showcase, and that shit is FREE - just like the download of this track!
Sarin Moddle is the Marketing Coordinator and radio host at 95bFM who is way not hipster enough to be a Marketing Coordinator and radio host for 95bFM.
Her current musical tastes are the result of a teenage Top 40 diet, a young adult obsession with hardcore, and nearly five years of having Indie beaten into her by her employer. The result? Soft spots for early 90's hip hop, unexpected re-imaginings of tracks in covers and remix form, pop sensibilities, and a solid kick drum.
