Arist: The Jelly of the Month Club
Song: "Brand New Friend"
Album: Introducing, The Jelly of the Month Club
Description: If you had told me that there'd be a new kindie band featuring, among others, a couple folks from Sublime, the musical bits in my mind would not have sounded anything like this song, which is a jazzy bit of roots and an infectious "wawa-wawa-wawa" chorus in parts. And the video features green screen technology and animated animals, which can sometimes be a warning sign, but here is just charming.
