Mp3 of the Week: Yoni Gordon and the Goods

Foreground: Yoni. Background: the national phallus.  

DOWNLOAD: Yoni Gordon and the Goods, "Buried in the Basement" [mp3]

Remember when Brett Rosenberg's first record came out and you thought he might be the next Ted Leo? Remember how wrong you were? Are you ready to play this game again? Because here comes Yoni Gordon, another cocky little prick with an album's worth of songs that're twice as smart as they need to be and catchier than the clap. "Buried in the Basement" sounds like someone welded the gilded cynicism/postgrad pop smarts of Elvis Costello to Jeff Mangum's bleeding heart, with a bonus crazed-dub outro. Download above, then catch the band November 19 at O'Brien's in Allston.
