MP3 of the Day: "Right on the Money" by the Pretty Faces
Check the link after the jump to download a free copy of their song "Right on the Money" from Last.FM. I've frequently dropped a Big Star comparison when talking about the Pretty Faces, but it rings particularly true here -- the song's wistful melody could have easily been an Alex Chilton outtake. Still, this is just a particularly mellow cross-section of the band's sound. Live, they are amped up, with a fierce juke-joint act's swagger, but still retaining a subtle, sugary sweetness.
You can also stream the full album (10 songs) on the band's Last.FM page, and if you like what you hear, please buy a copy on iTunes or CDBaby -- they financed this whole labor of love themselves. Check out the band's MySpace page for more information and a list of upcoming shows.
