118-119 – Annie Girl and the Flight & Diet Cig

Two songs to get through today, and a very limited amount of time to do them – so here goes…

I heard Annie Girl and the Flight about a month or so ago on one of the Bay Bridged podcast’s numerous “live in the Bay Area” shows, and immediately fell entranced by their bewitching psychedelic pop-rock. These San Franciscans are great fun to listen to with their smoky, hazy, distorted guitars and sugary vocals and this track in particular Antidote is an absolute triumph.

And as a complete contrast, here’s some sweet, hipster-esque sounds from New York duo Diet Cig. A find from NPR’s Austin 100, I’ve had this in reserve for a while and, as the weather’s getting a little better, I thought it was time to bust out some spring/summer tunes. This is Breathless and it’s lovely.
