RADEMACHER-Baby Hawk (part I of III)

Malcolm Sosa is an indie rock genius.  Yes.  And you’ve never heard of him.  And he couldn’t become a famous rock star.  So he made himself one.

I’ve been telling you guys—begging you, in fact—to give Fresno, California’s Rademacher a chance.  But nobody listened to me.  I hope you will now.  Baby Hawk (Part I of III) is about a musician with “flying dreams” of being an arena-size rock star.  It’s an origin story, for the band Baby Hawk, who “got kinda big.”  And then, of course, had a great fall.

At least, I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s about.

There’s a few songs on here you’ve heard before, that remade from the band’s debut record, “Stunts,” which, as I mentioned earlier, you never heard.  But that wasn’t my fault.  And anyway, “They Are Always Into That” is my favorite of their tunes.

I love these guys.  Y’know, there’s about a handful of indie artists that I enjoy enough to have contacted for interviews, and whose careers I follow more closely.  This is one of them.  The weird thing is, I’m pretty sure I went to college with Malcolm.  But I have no recollection of ever meeting him.  Then again, I was pretty much a misanthrope back then.  But I digress.

Great lyrics, great music, great vocals.  This is DIY indie at its best.  I’ll say that word again: Best.  I’m so sure, I’ve already tagged this with a “Best of 2011” label….

You need to hear this.  Now, get busy.
