Track of the Week: Someone's Favorite Song by Sunfall Festival

I don't know if you remember garageband.com or not, but back in the early 00's (well actually it looks like it's still a running site...), you could rate peoples music, and if you rated a certain amount you could get one of their CD's for free! (even earlier than when I was doing it, you could get a gift certificate from HMV). Anyways, I ended up with 2 CD's, one was the Pocket Dwellers great funk/hip-hop/jazz hybrid album Digitally Organic. The other was from an American band called Sunfall Festival. This female fronted band took the best things about Six Pence None the Richer (hold on it gets better) and mixed it with a touch of Radiohead and a great pop sensibility. I had forgotten about their album Monday 23 for a good number of years, but the other night I woke up with this song in my head. Hope you enjoy it, and have a great weekend!

Good call on sunfall festival - such a great, great record. My fave track was always "Sugar". I've had this on my iPod since I got it 3 years ago and listen to it at least once a month.

I remember the HMV gift certificates from Garageband back in the early days - I got myself "this is Spinal Tap" on DVD and Radiohead's Kid A on double 10-inch vinyl. Suhweet!

Awesome! Yeah, I never got the HMV thing... I should have totally abused that!

Nieces and Nephews. It took me, like, years before I realized what that was about.
