Hey! Yeah! Yay! - Cinema Cycle

Artist: Cinema Cycle

AlbumHey! Yeah! Yay! (Music for Parents and Kids)

Description: Nashville indie-pop for a good cause.  Cinema Cycle is Nashville musician David Arnold, with some help from others, and it's got a wonderful polyglot/Beck-ian sound reminiscent of the great Bunny Clogs.  Sometimes heartfelt, sometimes just danceable, and, heck, there's a song on the six-song EP about financial stress ("Broke as in Whoa").  All proceeds from the album's download will go towards finding a cure for ALS aka Lou Gehrig's Disease.  (Watch this video for more on the inspiration behind one of the songs.)
