Soup of the Day #3: Son of the Sun- The Good Ole' Days

After the stomping introduction explodes into a wall of bright psychedelic garage textures, Son of the Sun's single "The Good Ole' Days" continues to blossom and unfold, revealing layers of infectious harmonies, hazy guitars, and wanton wails from lead singer Zak Ward. This sexy single screams the 1960's, but is baked in all the right modern ingredients to get everyone in high in 2011.

The Buffalo, New York based quintet released their first full length album, The Happy Loss, in June of 2010, which received a well deserved bevy of praise from numerous media outlets and top internet tastemakers. The band's sound on the album, which they describe as "melodically detailed rock", is moody, refined, and filled with nostalgic pop elements, which is why their comparison to The Kinks and Black Rebel Motorcycle Club rings true in my ears.

Not only is this song good, but the live version I saw online was even better.
