Song of the Day: Saturday Looks Good to Me, "Make a Plan"

Song of the Day: Saturday Looks Good to Me, "Make a Plan"

Saturday seems like as good a day as any to introduce the uninitiated to Saturday Looks Good to Me, the mammoth Michigan musical collective that falls somewhere between The New Pornographers and Belle and Sebastian.

The band, whose cumbersome moniker is often abbreviated SLGTM, was founded in 2000 by Fred Thomas for a high-concept label that only issued music from non-existent bands. Not surprisingly, the now-real band has been an ever-morphing beast ever since, with a constantly revolving lineup. Along the way, it released two particularly stellar albums: All Your Summer Songs in 2003 and Every Night one year later.

"Make a Plan" — off the band's fourth album, Fill Up the Room, coming out Oct. 23 — showcases the few constants of SLGTM's style, including Thomas's sassy but droll vocals; warm, vintage production; and Motown-influence pop. (Thanks to Stereogum for posting.) I think you'll like it, so to listen,
