Fletcher C Johnson (Brooklyn / Burger Records)

Fletcher C. Johnson may have established his roots playing with King Tuff, but his own material truly reflects his rock ‘n roll pedigree. Starting off sounding like “The Ballad of John and Yoko” being covered by the International Submarine Band, “Happy Birthday” establishes itself as a nostalgic amalgamation of 60s stylists playing a house party, as the vocals kick in with “When the dance has barely started / and the cops are at the door…” But where most of today’s groups convey a good time through recklessness, Fletcher sings with measured, joyful observance and a subdued compliance. When the chorus hits, he doesn’t incite – so much as sweeten with a melody resolution like Jan & Dean. Debut album, It Rained Something Wicked was released in 2010 on Burger Records, followed by sophomore effort Salutations, in 2012. Fletcher C. Johnson is based in Brooklyn, New York.

Las Rosas (Brooklyn / Burger Records)

Breezy garage pop hitz from Jose of Harlem (the band) on Burger Records!
