Mid-Week Pick Me Up: The Constellations

Man, it’s only Wednesday???

This week may be dragging a bit but this morning I heard this awesome song by an Atlanta act who call themselves The Constellations.

DOWNLOAD THIS! – The Constellations – “Setback”

Imagine, if you will, what would happen if you mixed the Gorillaz with MGMT.  The combination of similarities form into this great multi genred track without going overboard.   The song seriously impressed me upon first listen.  Learning that the band contains eight members intrigued me even more.

Making things even more interesting I happened to receive a Constellations 7″ (not kidding) in the mail today that not only had “Setback” but also the killer track “Love Is A Murder” featuring Cee-Lo!  This is no Gnarls Barkey attempt but rather something much more likable (at least to me).  After hearing just two tracks off the album I have very high expectations of the full length.

I have to say I am rather pumped for The Constellations to release their debut album titled Southern Gothic on June 22nd.  It took the band two years to record the album with help from producer Ben H. Allen (Animal Collective, Gnarls Barkley).

You fancy yourself a Broken Bells fan?  Well you should check this band out pretty quickly before they blow up all over the music scene.
