KISS wasn't lying when the group penned "Detroit Rock City." Honestly, what's going on in Michigan? I hope you're ready to add a new name to the already loaded list of awesome bands from the Wolverine State. Saturday Looks Good to Me plays bittersweet pop tunes à la Brian Wilson, with homage to Phil Spector's wall of sound and arrangements worthy of George Martin. Find it hard to believe someone could sincerely channel '60s pop without garishly making mockery? Buy the new album Every Night and see for yourself. While you're at it, pick up some tickets for their upcoming show. Having racked up road miles with the likes of Saves the Day, Mates of State, and Rainer Maria, Saturday is sure to spool out some of the best indie rock in the land. As you watch in awe, keep in mind -- Saturday Looks Good to Me doesn't want to break your heart as much as it wants to steal it. --Tim Moffitt
