Our Favourite Son(g)s

Ugh. What’s worse? A blogger’s spelling pun, or an American band’s name utilizing British spelling? What’s definitely not the worst is the subject: Favourite Sons, whose album we recently identified as our 29th most-anticipated release of 2011, rose from the ashes of Philly’s Aspera (those ashes have good company, Noise Narcs favorite and Blood Feather Drew Mills was also a member). The titular track of their upcoming The Great Deal of Love, to be released “soon,” has everything we need in a winter warmer: a gravelly and emanating voice, plenty of opportunities for drunken singalongs, exquisite schadenfreude, and enough bouncy melody to pretend that it’s already spring.

And they’ve recently released their second video, “For Dear Life.”
