Papas Fritas - "Way You Walk"

I had never heard of Papas Fritas up until a few weeks ago, and I'm pretty sure I never would have run across them unless my friend had pointed them out. They're like Fleetwood Mac if they went to college together in the 2000s. Actually, they even covered Book of Love from the band's 1982 album Mirage. They've got pop, rock, alt, hell - even disco influences.

Way You Walk is funky. Sounds a little like Morphine, if you've ever listened to them - the kind of song that sounds good on late-night drives, or walking in the streetlights. The thick bassline and clapping have this stripped-down feeling, giving way to the lyrics about guy whose lady is cheating on him. Check out their album Buildings and Grounds if you likey. -- PC
