This song has no lyrics or nothing

MAD SCENE "Instrumental Song #1"

About two years ago, I got this rad disc of unreleased and in-progress songs from Hamish Kilgour by the band he and his wife Lisa Siegel have had for some time now, the Mad Scene. When my then-label-partner was not at all interested, I knew for certain we had to part ways. Yes, you could call it a moment of clarity...

So this song is a perfect hot sidewalk, running to the store for a Strawberry Shortcake popsicle kind of a song. It reminds me a bit of the Go Team, the original Olympia supergroup and the only band edging out the Alpaca Brothers and World of Pooh for desperate-need-of-reissue-hood. Hamish, his brother David, and Robert Scott comprise The Clean, but you already knew that seeing as they're the best band ever. That's right -- I said ever.

that the same go team that's on memphis industries and does feel-good-ee pop with a kinda seventies-ish vibe?
