Driving around town today I heard British pop group The Wave Pictures’ 2008 single “Love You Like a Madman” on the local college radio station, WUSC-FM 90.5, one of the last bastions of true free-form radio in the country. It’s a great tune, with words spilling all over themselves but a melody so simple it could have come from Jonathan Richman. Looking at their website, they put out a new EP a couple of months ago but it’s a European-only release–maybe that’s why I missed out on hearing about it.
