America’s Music (Saturday Looks Good To Me)

I know this looks like a music blog’s posting – but trust me, it’s Library-related! 1491523023-1The Ann Arbor District Library is featuring one of our favorite local bands in its ongoing series “American Music”Saturday Looks Good To Me is an elastic project with a revolving door of contributors, led by eclectic/inventive/visionary pop-songwriter and producer Fred Thomas. “American Music” is an eight-week documentary film/ discussions series focuses on twentieth-century American popular music and features related concerts performed by some of the area’s most prominent musicians.

Thomas’ band is releasing its first full length album in six years, titled One Kiss Ends It All (out in May on Polyvinyl).

Have a listen:

The Ann Arbor District Library is showcasing his project because “Saturday Looks Good To Me has consistently brought together the jubilant fun of Motown and Northern soul with an indie-rock approach. Fred Thomas poured generations of influences ranging from the Beach Boys to Guided by Voices into dusty pocket symphonies.”

untitledThis week, AADL’s music programming is “devoted to the history of Rock’n’Roll.”
