I was driving around in LA a few days ago listening to 98.7 and it was evening. A song came on the radio that was very musically interesting (all I remember was a random bass bit that came back again and again--I apologize that that's the best I can do to flesh out what I mean by "interesting"). The song was upbeat or at least not sad. The lead singer was a male with a reedy voice who was literally impossible to understand throughout the song, even though he was speaking English. I really liked this song! But then I lost the station when I went behind a hill, so I went home and have been feverishly searching for it through various means ever since.
What I have discovered thus far is that KROQ claims no knowledge of it...at least, they haven't played it in the last 24 hours. 98.7 hasn't played it since (I've been obsessively listening on and off-- though obviously not every minute of every day) and it's none of the songs listed on their new music listy thing
It sounds a LOT like Alt-J (a la "Fitzpleasure"
), but it's not them, or at least not that song or their others on youtube. In the words of a friend who was with me when I heard it the first time around, the person's voice from the song in question is "less extreme or exaggerated" than the guy from Alt-J.
Can anyone help me? I'm tearing my hair out here.
