We all have that one friend, the master of the mix tape, who has introduced us to a variety of tunes that might have otherwise escaped our notice. I certainly do, and if not for the incomparable Manny, I quite probably never would have stumbled upon California's Her Space Holiday.
Since such is the issue, I jumped at the opportunity to check out their latest single, "Sleepy Tigers", from XOXO, Panda and the New Kid Revival. Apparently, Marc Bianchi, the man behind the band, has written this one under a new, "more carefree" persona. So, it's got that going for it.
Regardless, he's given us a breezy, little track that bounces along like a campfire sing-a-long. Think the White Stripes' "We're Going to Be Friends", but the slightest bit more fun. The hand claps and tambourine just give it that something extra, you know?
