Song of the Day: Kopecky Family Band - Heartbeat

I'm going to try to post a song-a-day here at I listen to a ton of music. I would also argue that I have impeccable taste in music but that has come against some scrutiny against less aesthetically-minded folks. 

Kopecky Family Band formed in Nashville in 2007. I remember reading a review about their performance from SXSW at the Paste Magazine showcase a few years back. At the time, they had only released a few EP's; Embraces in 2008 and The Disaster and Of Epic Proportions both in 2010. It wasn't until this October (2012) that the band released their first full-length album. 

The album is a really nice indie-rock album that fuses dirty guitars, great cello accents, some synth highlights, and even lyrical depth.
