Free Friday: The ACBs - "Stona Rosa"

The Kansas City-based indie-pop group The ACBs just released their stunning sophomore album, Little Leaves this week via High Dive Records.  Led by frontman Konnor Ervin’s higher-registered James Mercer-esque croon; the band effortlessly blends strutting bass lines and crisp, jangly guitars with upbeat rhythms and quirky yet poppy melodies in two-and-a-half-minute spurts, sounding like The Strokes on a beach blanket.  The infectious first single from the album, “Record Store” features a deliriously catchy sing-along chorus with a bouncy melody and falsetto vocal cadence and “Ocean” is a 60’s-inspired nugget of reverb-rich pop with spacey synths and flickering guitar figures.  Another standout track comes in the form of the swaying doo-wop melodies of “Television” as well as the sly, slinky 80's funk of album closer, "Lover Yeah".      
In celebration of the release of their new album, The ACBs are giving away their excellent debut album Stona Rosa as a free download on their Bandcamp page.  Stream and download both albums below:
