Rick McNulty, Host of Left of the Dial & Uptown Saturday Night shares the best songs ever…this week.
Vulfpeck – “Darwin Derby”
Vulfpeck are a homegrown band from Michigan that have eschewed record labels and instead raised their own profile with a serious and successful DIY ethic. It helps that they are one of the funkiest bands alive – and their bass player, Joe Dart, is one of the best I’ve ever heard. Here’s their new super funk jam, “Darwin Derby.”
Illuminati Hotties – “I Wanna Keep Yr Dog”
Next up is Sarah Tudzin, better known as Illuminati Hotties. She made quite an impression last week at SXSW and for good reason: her songs are intelligent, infectious, and blaze along at a punk rock pace while providing hooks just about every thirty seconds. “I Wanna Keep Yr Dog” is about how she liked her boyfriend’s dog more than the boyfriend.
