CD of the Day, 5/10/06: Partly Dave-Own Up
Corvallis, Oregon is where today's CD of the Day comes from, courtesy of the gents known as Partly Dave. Own Up is their debut disc, and it's a keeper. The sound here is classic guitar pop, with Teenage Fanclub and The Posies coming to mind. Highlights include "So Yesterday", "Out of My Hands" (which sounds a lot like a cross between Matthew Sweet and Gary Louris-era Jayhawks), and "Pick Me". These guys do harmonize well (they self-compare to the Lovin' Spoonful on that score).
Not finding a myspace page for them, but you can get a couple of mp3s directly from their site:
There Isn't Enough (To Go Around)
Sample the rest at CD Baby, where it's available for purchase. They may be Partly Dave, but they're all good.
