The Mowgli’s


They just released Waiting for the Dawn, but a quick listen to this peppy southern California band might misplace them among ’90s-era alternative rock circa 1997, when TRL seemed to have a strict no worrying policy. Maybe these Jungle Book-loving rockers didn’t get the memo about the pity party that followed, but it’s refreshing to hear crackling pop with a love conquers all aesthetic and a propulsive beat. “San Francisco,” with its “can you feel the love” mantra in the chorus, is a decent entry in contention for song of the summer.
