Nik’s Music Almanac

Totally Irrelevant and Off-Topic

The Tontons

First heard about them from SXSW. They’re fun, they’ve got a really good sound, and a few standout songs (Bones 1 is my favorite).

For some reason, I don’t love them with the intensity of some of their fans. I guess maybe their lyrics just don’t stick with me. But they are still fun to listen to and relax with.

Sounds like: The Tontons.

Lyrics:

And one of these days
I’ll get a 9 to 5
Corporate parties, men in ties

But today’s not that day
And I’m not that girl
I’ve got time
I’ve got the whole wide world
In my hands
