The forecast for this weekend is looking quite sunny and promising, so let’s start things off with some shimmering poppy goodness from Melee. “Built to Last” builds off of its initial piano hook into a really lush pop song. The lead singer’s voice soars throughout, and is lifted even further with wise use of backing “oohs” and “aaahs” in the choruses. If you like what you hear, Melee will be at the Rock N Roll Hotel this Friday, May 4th.

And then we close out the week with “Let It Roll,” by Pawnshop Roses. It’s swaggering southern boogie rock that’s a dead ringer for vintage Black Crowes. And I mean the Shake Your Money Maker/Southern Harmony-era Black Crowes that rocked. Give ‘em a listen.
