Two San Francisco Indie Pop bands get together and, suddenly, Phil Spector lives. AB & The Sea tend toward those retro sunny sounds anyway--a bit of surf guitar, a bit of Beach Boys harmony. Garage-boppers The Shes also provide a bit of a retro sound, combining beachy sunshine pop with a mid 60s guitar jangle. Looking at these bands, you'd wonder if any of them are of legal drinking age. But, together, they do one fantastic cover of "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home". Nobody's ever replacing the Darlene Love version, but this one's got enough sunshine to hold off global warming for at least 2 minutes and 10 seconds. Don't know which group gets credit for the organ work, but credit they deserve. Visit the boys here and the ladies here and download the song above. Now you know your AB Shes. Ouch. Too bad no artwork for this.
