The Harmony Motel isn't really a live band, but who knows? Maybe that will change after tonight. It's the songwriting/recording project of Stanton Hall, bassist for the Zags; instead of that band's bubblegummy power-pop, the Harmony Motel operates within a cadre of careful, calculated baroque-pop suites. Not to say that it's no fun: The new Harmony Motel single, "Straight to My Head"/"Dead Bird," is a succulent, addictive double whammy, bringing to mind songwriters like Andy Partridge, Paddy McAloon, and David and Peter Brewis. It's available on Bandcamp for free (and if you download it, you get five bonus demos in your zip file). Tonight Hall enlists the other members of the Zags—each a songwriter in her or his own right, including Pete Schreiner of Magnolia Electric Co., performing as Thousand Arrows—to join him in playing solo sets for the single's release.
