This year has really flown by, and now it’s time to gorge your faces, kids. But don’t be afraid to go out and listen to some music later in the week. First up we’ve got the indie pop of Maritime’s “For Science Fiction.” I really dig how it explodes into ultra-catchy choruses full of punchy, layered guitars. And the fuzzed-out keyboard sounds provide a nice little touch, fitting for the song title . If you like what you hear, they’ll be at the Rock and Roll Hotel this Saturday, November 24th. Bring ‘em your leftovers.

And to wrap up the week we’ve got Ben Lee’s “What Would Jay-Z Do?” Beyonce, most likely. But I digress. Anyway, the track is sugary pop and goes down nice and smooth, with all the harmonies and backing vocals in their perfect places. It’s almost easy the clever lyrics about HOVA. You can catch Ben Lee Tuesday, November 26th at the Birchmere.
