Jam of the Day | The Goodnight Loving - The Pan

First things first, let's spend a moment contemplating the awesomeness of this band's name: The Goodnight Loving. Who doesn't want some of that?

Next, let's discuss the Milwaukee band's slick and souped-up garage rock. Taking cues from The Strokes (without the cynicism) and pulling together a cocktail of rock 'n' roll genres (surf, honky tonk, punk), The Goodnight Loving is pure, unadulterated fun with a majorly fresh spirit.

Today's JOTD sounds like it came straight from a carefully curated Tarantino film soundtrack. "The Pan" features straightforward, easygoing vocals against furious guitar strumming and a little jingle-jangle percussion. At about the 1:30 mark, it takes us to the beach with a quick surfer interlude. The entire track doesn't last very long, but that's what the constant repeat button is for.
