I could Be Wrong But Has Florida Produced Any Great Music

While the state is bereft of quality rock, the band called Florida has created some beautiful melodic power pop and as readers of Songs:Illinois you should know by now that I can’t resist power pop. Florida records for Free Election Records and features members of other Free Election bands specifically Mike Brady. In the Free Election Records world that makes these guys a supergroup of sorts. Decide for yourself by checking out these two songs:

Lonely Magnet [Download]

Little Sunrise [Download]

Here’s Mike Brady’s melancoly solo stuff (which I like as much as or more than the group stuff)

From 2001′s Cold Night

We’re Done [Download]

I’m Getting What I Want [Download]

Party Balloon [Download]

Fashion Free [Download]

From 2002′s As Long As The Day Is Long

Made Up Weeds [Download]

Invisible Friend [Download]
