It's A First: I'm Excited About 'Hippies'

I rarely listen to the radio, but yesterday I found myself tuning in to Sirius XMU while in the car. I'm glad I did because I heard a song I can't seem to get out of my head. I don't know much about the Austin-based trio named Harlem, but I can tell you they had an album called 'Free Drugs' back in 2008. It must have been pretty good because now they are signed to Matador and will release their first record for the label -- 'Hippies' -- on April 6. The song I heard was a bright piece of power pop called "Friendly Ghost". Great title since it has haunted me in a good way for the past 24 hours. Thanks to Matador for posting it.
