It's a lovely day here in DC, made even more so by the debut release of one of our favorite bands this year, Fitz & the Tantrums. Titled Pickin' Up the Pieces, this debut includes many of the tracks from their 2009 EP, Songs for a Break Up, Vol. 1, as well as others like "L.O.V" that bring the house down live. Armed with horns, a Hammond B3 organ and lots of blue-eyed soul, you'll find yourself shimmying and swaying in a way you never have before. They put on an incredible live show as well, so be sure you get yourself to the Rock and Roll Hotel next month (9/20) for their area appearance. And even if you don't usually dance, come prepared to do so anyway-with a Fitz and the Tantrums live show, resistance to boogieing down is futile.
