DUSTY DIAMOND OF THE WEEK (a forgotten gem from the STD vaults): The Fevers were a Minneapolis based garage band with pop sensibilities. They were active with changing line-ups from 1998 into the mid 00s. “Love’s Gettin’ Better” is a catchy, jangly, galloping power pop gem with a feel-good vibe. It appeared on the 2002 “Gaan Daar Waar De Meisjes Zijn” album on Alien Snatch! Records. Listen to it here:
