Plagiarism,Petty and Petticoats

Yes todays post is brought to you by the letter P firstly (to avoid the charge of plagirism myself) full credit to Matt of the monster Blogosaurus YANP for he was the first on the scene for Petticoat, Petticoat (well they are a local band for him) having just read his two most recent entries hes also got a competition on for those who want to win a copy of their upcoming album 'Every Mother’s Child' released on June 27th (its open to U.S residents only though which rules me out). Anyway I probably should say a little bit about why I like them from what I've heard, well I like the fact that they kind of make me think of a downbeat New Pornographers despite still having a sunny indie pop sound but also the fact that despite that they do sound highly indie,poppy and folky there is also an edge on Glittering Heels of a nice driving bassline (something I always like), so in conclusion a great deal of promise, join them on MySpace. Now you wouldn't expect a band like the Red Hot Chili Peppers to be mentioned in the same breath as direct rip-off of a Tom Petty track but thats what is suggested by this radio programme from the states, now hmmm would I say the chord progression is basically indentical and the vocals are incredibly similar as is the vocal theme, well I guess I just did but have a listen to the two and make up your mind.

Petticoat, Petticoat-Glittering Heels
Tom Petty-Mary Jane's Last Dance
Red Hot Chili Peppers-Dani California

Pre-Order Petticoat, Petticoat-Every Mother's Child
Tom Petty-Greatest Hits
RHCP-Stadium Arcadium
