Bobby Jealousy : Your New Favorite

I dare you (dare you) to listen to Bobby Jealousy’s Rainbow and not find yourself singing it throughout the day. Seriously. Go on. Consider yourself dared.

This band is swell. Austin-based, and comprised of the fiercely entertaining Sabrina Ellis, Seth Gibbs, Mark Stoney and Clint Simmons, they were named one of KUT’s 12 bands to watch for in 2012. (You can listen to a lot of their other songs here.) (UPDATE: Please note, according to a commenter on this site, the band is now made up of Seth Gibbs, Sabrina Ellis, and Adam Harlow.)

James saw them at Stubb’s a couple of weeks ago and raved about their live performance. And for example, here they are stripped down, live.

See? Just as good.

And now you’ve heard Rainbow twice, so it will totally be in your head today.

You’re welcome.

    Thanks for the tip! I’m currently listening to holiday music (and driving my students nuts I’m sure), but I’m going to try this one!).

    I was struck by their creativity and just how tight they sounded. It was a pleasure.

    Misprint in band members’ names. Check with BJ.

      Gina, Hey thanks for the heads up. The band’s site is down…and four sources I found all have the band members listed as such. What should the names be?

    Right now, I believe it’s Seth Gibbs, Sabrina Ellis, and Adam Harlow

    What? Is Stoney no longer in the band? Noooooooo! He’s by far the best songwriter of the lot. I hope this isn’t the case, wouldn’t be the same.
