About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: September 2, 2009
  • Artist / Band: The New Familiars
  • Hosting Show: Musical Merry-Go-Round
  • Sound: Dan Kinney

And you wouldn't be wrong, but the New Familiars aren't afraid to plug in, turn up, and even give the drummer some. If their electrified, old-timey, and genuinely gorgeous version of the Motown standard "My Girl" doesn't make you want to get better acquainted then nothing will.
