In the world of "Mad Men," a sharp suit and a clever hook can take you a long way. Which is why in addition to their organ-soaked rhythms and Motown swagger, L.A.s Fitz and the Tantrums have what it takes to satiate your Lucky Strike-smoking nostalgia. Led by dapper frontman Michael Fitzpatrick, the band delivers sultry soul songs about lust, love and vice that could easily be embedded in the background of any stylishly shot scene of AMC's hit series. And while many critics, including ours, attribute interest in the band's sound and skinny ties to the popularity of Don Draper and Co., Fitz and the Tantrums are equally adept at shedding a fresh light on the place and time when soul music ruled the world.
