Saturday Looks Good to Me is an experimental indie pop band. The group is led by singer-songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Fred Thomas (former member of His Name Is Alive, Lovesick, Flashpapr). Through Fred Thomas, the group's major songwriter, the group creates intricate soundscapes which hearken back to Detroit soul.

The band built up a considerable following on the back of the indie pop albums All Your Summer Songs and the more polished Every Night. Every Night introduced new singer Betty Marie Barnes who became the nearest to a permanent female singer that the band ever had.

Ian Watson of club night How Does It Feel To Be Loved helped increase their profile in the UK making "Alcohol", "The Girl's Distracted" and "Ultimate Stars" staples of indie-pop club nights.

This lead to a well received tour there in 2007 (as documented in the UK sleeve notes of Fill Up The Room and touched upon in the lyrics to final single Dianne Falling Off Her Horse )

By 2007, Barnes had semi-left the band and Thomas took over as the band's sole front person. SLGTM's music also changed and the resulting "Fill Up The Room" album was more adventurous both lyrically and musically than the bands previous two albums (especially on the 6 minute 48 second pop odyssey of "When I Lose My Eyes").

Following another European tour in 2008, Thomas put the band on ice to contrate on other projects.
