Every Monday through Friday, we deliver a different song as part our Song of the Day podcast subscription. This podcast features exclusive KEXP in-studio performances, unreleased songs, and recordings from independent artists that our DJs think you should hear. Today’s featured selection, chosen by Afternoon Show host Kevin Cole, is Towards the Light by Douglas Armour from the 2008 album The Light of A Golden Day, The Arms of the Night on The Social Registry.

Douglas Armour – Towards the Light (MP3)

Fittingly titled The Light of A Golden Day, The Arms of the Night, the debut from LA’s Douglas Armour couches dark, often muted lyrics within a 30-year encapsulation of all things pop. With plenty of synths and drum machines in tow, Armour meanders his way through disco, contemporary R&B, West Coast pop, and more, doing it all with the conviction of a seasoned pop star, for a label that wouldn’t typically bother. But with the idea of the perfect pop song on the mind of every music executive looking to succeed, it’s hard to argue with the prospect of adding Armour to the roster. Visit his MySpace page to stay up on his tour itinerary, and enjoy this video for album standout Fall Apart Again:
