Fitz and the Tantrums - KCRW Album Preview

It's no secret around these here parts that I love both KCRW and Fitz and the Tantrums. That's why this particular album preview by "the big K" is even more special... But the connection runs a bit deeper than just local love.

Fitz had a breakout performance at KCRW's SXSW official showcase in Austin this past spring and it was that show that really vaulted the band into the spotlight. That was my first experience with the energetic sextet and I was completely blown away and it's certainly been fun to see them rise. An opening slot with Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings on their cross country tour soon followed SXSW and now here we are.

Their debut full length album from Dangerbird Records (another local outfit) drops August 24th. See them this Sunday @ Sunset Junction and they also perform a free in store at Amoeba Hollywood the day of the album release.

Listen to "Pickin' Up The Pieces" here.
