Vox Pop is Positively Pop-tastic [stream]

The thing about being tickled is that you have no control over your facial contortions. You look really dumb, and your abdomen actually aches afterwards. Likewise, sometimes music tickles our ears so hard that we lose control over our face, and it’s obnoxious, really, but we love it. Good music makes us feel good, and Vox Pop is obnoxiously good music.

The Brooklyn-based foursome (via London via Edinburgh via San Francisco) are a big gulp of laughing gas daring you not to crack a smile. Spoiler alert: you fail. Their textured, experimental pop exuberance is the sound of friends who love making music so much that it just pours out of them, forming colorful tracks with ease. French/Funeral is a four-song, harmony-laden, hook-drenched, multi-instrumental set of monster jams out for blood. JK – they just want to tickle you.

Vox Pop’s French/Funeral is a positive energy transfusion, and I guarantee you’re going to love listening to it. Research shows that laughing for 15 minutes a day can burn 10-40 calories, and French/Funeral clocks in at just around 15 minutes. Easiest exercise you’ll ever do — get to work!
