Band of the Day: The Long Winters

NAME: The Long Winters
HOMETOWN: Seattle, Washington, United States

HOW I HEARD ABOUT THEM: I was reading the Best of Seattle 2006: Critic’s Picks. They named The Long Winters the best power pop band.
SONG LISTENED TO: “Blue Diamonds” [MP3]
WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE: Singer John Roderick’s vocals sound a bit Michael Stipe REM-ish. Nice touches with the horns in the background and pretty harmonies. Mid-tempo beats make it worthy of finger-snapping. Cute and catchy.
