Indie-pop singer-songwriter Madi Diaz garnered early praise for her 2011 EP Far From Things That We Know. On January 24th, Diaz is set to release her first full-length album, Plastic Moon, with help from renowned producer John Alagia (John Mayer, The Dave Matthews Band).

"I had been living in Nashville writing for a few months, and I think I was just tired of digging for this deep, painful, pining love story," Diaz says. "Sometimes you just want to hear a make out story."

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
