Boy Genius - "Failing Gravity"
Brooklyn's Boy Genius are among the dozens of bands playing Athens Popfest, and repeated listens of their album Anchorage have elevated them from mystery-to-me to must-see. They're a dandy indie pop act, with a sound somewhere between Titans of Filth and Pavement. It's a little sloppy and a lot of fun. My favorite track on Anchorage is probably "Failing Gravity," a melodic pop song with great hooks and horns. It just might make your Monday a little nicer.
