American Authors are having a moment: the quartet’s debut album, “Oh, What A Life,” came out Tuesday (4), as its banjo-laced song “Best Day of My Life” is reaching critical mass. Even if you don’t think you know the bouncy song, which was released nearly a year ago,  you do: it’s achieved near ubiquity through its usage in commercials for Lowes, the trailer for “Delivery Man, “ as the opening sequence for Espn’s World Series of Poker series, or, of course, on the radio. It reached No. 1 on Billboard’s Adult Pop Songs chart, No. 6 on Billboard’s Rock Songs chart and is still climbing the Billboard Hot 100. The rest of the album follows a similarly upbeat trajectory, with the band musically aligned with such acts as fun., and The Script. Most of the lyrics are positive, or if not outright celebratory, accepting of life on life’s terms. »
