Guitar-driven title track from Detroit foursome LISBOA's self-produced 2004 EP. Horns and strings courtesy of the Eastern Market Baroque Philharmonic. Sometimes the choice, it chooses you. Kierkegaard references and overbearingly emotive vocals courtesy of yours truly. Here's to your weekend, friends.
Here's an unfortunately prescient political power-pop tune I penned in '02, as recorded by Detroit's own rock foursome LISBOA at our (then) modest home studio in our first collective foray into DIY recording. RIFYL: The New Pornographers and dudes/lady-dudes in that vein. Honky tonk piano (emphasis on the "honky"), a Hammond, some e-Bow, a little vibraphone, and a few too many "nah-nah-nah-nahs," but whaddya gonna do, right? Hope you dig it, friends.
Take It From Me
The Archers of Loaf meet the Bay City Rollers in this humble contribution to the grand tradition of cheeky break-up tunes. Terrible puns abound, but you've been warned. From LISBOA's 2003 EP Either Origami, available here for five lousy clams. Crank it up, friends.
My Dictator (Can Beat Up Your Dictator)
Putting the "b" in "subtle," Detroit's LISBOA pens a political power-pop tune that pulls no punches. Alliteration is always awesome. Sounds like: Kansas City's best (i.e., only) Cheap Trick cover band meets Propaghandi at an after-hours bingo parlor. In drag. Dig the horns, dudes and lady-dudes.
Hats, Caps and Notions
Another slice of power-pop rock from LISBOA's self-produced 2005 LP Live from the Grand Hotel Abyss [iTunes link], with a title indirectly inspired by a mefi thread of all things! By the way, you should totally pick up a copy of the mefi compilation CD: it features another track from LISBOA as well as a bunch of great tunes from some genuinely talented mefites, too. Plus, proceeds go to, you know, the kids.
