Retro, Rapturous

This morning, while listening to the local college radio station, I heard a really sweet song by Brooklyn music group The Bandana Splits. The song is really catchy, and the video, with it's retro vibe, is instantly likeable:


The Bandana Splits - "Sometimes" from stereogum on Vimeo.



How can one fail to be charmed? The singers are enchanting, and the "working stiff dreams big" theme manages to be simultaneously poignant and funny. The setting, Brooklyn Farmacy and Soda Fountain, is attractive (I love the tile floor, it reminds me of Ferdinando's Focacceria, of course, I am more a spleen sandwich guy than an ice cream soda guy, but that's me). I think I may have to stop by Brooklyn Farmacy for an egg cream when I head down to Brooklyn to have a beer (or several) with Ned and ***SPOILER ALERT*** Substance McGravitas.
