Daily Dose Pick: Fitz and the Tantrums


Embracing vintage Motown sounds with a modern twist, Los Angeles-based band Fitz and the Tantrums create soul-pop gems without employing a single guitar.

Frontman and songwriter Michael Sean Fitzpatrick, aka Fitz, bases his compositions around vintage organ and piano arrangements, with his vocals amply supported by alluring co-singer and onstage foil Noelle Scaggs. The band’s debut album, Pickin’ Up the Pieces, follows its buzz-building EP, Songs for a Break Up, Volume 1, which already had numerous people, ourselves included, calling it one of 2010’s most promising new acts.
