i L.O.V. Fitz and the Tantrums

It's easy for me to love Fitz and the Tantrums. And unless you dislike Motown, Soul, Indie Pop, the entirety of the 60's and the general sound of good music, you'll love them too. What's even better than their use of saxophone is their story - the classic culmination of hard work, a good product and great timing. Newly formed and virtually unheard of, the LA band had a fan in a tattoo artist from New York who happened to have Maroon 5's Adam Levine as a customer. When Adam heard their EP playing, he decided the unsigned and unknown Fitz and the Tantrums would be their opening act on their Fall 2009 tour. The rest is history.

Their album Pickin' Up The Pieces, released this past August, is sure to please with (my personal favorites) "MoneyGrabber", "Breakin' The Chains of Love", "Don't Gotta Work It Out", and "L.O.V."
