This podcast: music from Eclipse and Marcoux Corner. Eclipse from Northern Utah. Marcoux Corner from Minnesota.
Eclipse knows hooks. Their original songs consistently have hooks. Some better than others, but there. The hook in "Think Twice" is a little too long and complex to sing along with. I should say, to sing along with accurately. I find myself singing it around the house, but I have no idea what most of the words are.
Marcoux Corner: great grasp of the harmony group sound. Gentle beat, voicings stay relatively simple. "Your Kisses" is a close descendent of traditional a cappella.
Thought about original music: Stanford's Fleet Street Singers, a college group, released an album of all-original music in 2005. College. All-Original. For reals.
