The Mynabirds Perform "Lemon Tree," "LA Rain," "Let the Record Go"

Blue-eyed soul is reason enough for this blog to momentarily go electric. "Laura Burhenn says she'd long imagined a band that sounded like Neil Young playing Motown," we learn from this National(ist) Public Radio blurb — NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert: The Mynabirds. What this blogger hears, especially in the exquisite first number, is Memphis soul (and Stax Records), one of the last stands of decent and regional American popular music.
