MP3 of the Week: Drug Rug

DOWNLOAD: Drug Rug, "Tiny People" (mp3)
WATCH: Drug Rug at YouTube

Along with Mean Creek and Hats and Glasses, Drug Rug are among our favorite newish local bands led by a boyfriend-girlfriend team making beautiful music together, as Pepé Le Pew would say. On their forthcoming Drug Rug debut, Tommy Allen and Sarah Cronin are joined by a killer supporting cast: Apollo Sunshine frontman Jesse Gallagher; Allen’s brother and Viva Viva bandmate, Johnny; Dead Trees’ Mike Cummings and Noah Rubin; former Lot Six guitarist Julian Cassanetti; and Tulsa frontman Carter Tanton, who recorded the album in his Allston basement. But it’s the songs of Allen and Cronin — simple, timeless-sounding little pop gems like this 12-string-and-xylophone-driven number — that take center stage. Catch them thisThursday, August 9, at T.T.'s.
