The Old Ceremony

Out of North Carolina comes a funky-fresh septet The Old Ceremony--a collective bent on crafting some finely tuned tracks that skirt the hit-and-miss genre that is indie pop fusion (we'll say it's a genre for now). The Old Ceremony reminds me of Chicago's very own "Baby Teeth", about whom I blogged a few months back. Lead singer Django Haskins' vocals are clear and effusive, backed by a band that can break it down like it's nobody's business. Their sophomore release Our One Mistake was actually released in late 2006, and to be honest, I'm surprised that I hadn't heard anything about it.
Granted, this album does have a good number of misses, but to neglect the "hits" would be criminal. "Get To Love" is a high-charged, piano-pounding delight that will have you rocking out in no time. Or take "Papers in Order" (video above), which just may be one the best (ya heard me right) songs I've heard in quite a while.

Go and give some love to The Old Ceremony: Buy Our One Mistake.
Listen to "Papers in Order" (5/5) (see video above: 4.9/5)
Lisetn to "Get To Love" (4.8/5)
