  • Throw Me The Statue

    This band is great, especially if you like glockenspiel. I first came across them on the wonderful The Take-Away Shows website. Everyone needs to watch these videos.  They\’re shot on the Seattle Bainbridge ferry, which I haven\’t been on, but I kinda want to ride now. The glockenspiel player just goes crazy.  A little crazy on […]

  • Plushgun

    My friend Sarah pointed out this fun band, Plushgun. Very 80s sounding.  It reminds me of The Lightning Seeds. I spent all day listening to their songs on their myspace page. My favorite song is their song, Just Impolite.  The chorus is terrific. Here\’s a video for it: They\’re Brooklyn based, if you can\’t tell […]

  • Twee Tuesday – This is Ivy League

  • vacation

    I\’ll be on vacation this week, visiting a friend in LA who is getting married.  Posts resume next Tuesday.

  • Shoegaze Sunday – Chapterhouse

  • The Little Ones

    The Little Ones have a new album out! I loved their previous one.  My only problem with it was there weren\’t enough songs. Since the new album is an EP, I guess I\’ll have the same problem with it too.  Which isn\’t a bad thing, really. Their myspace. You can buy their new album here. […]

  • From Bubblegum To Sky

    From Bubblegum To Sky is one of the bands opening for Tullycraft at this year\’s NYC Popfest. I love this song, Hello Hello Hi, because it sounds like one of those songs I\’ve heard all my life but didn\’t know it.  Like when I first heard Belle and Sebastian. They\’re west coast, so I\’m glad […]

  • Spilt Milk

    I heard this song a month or so ago on Nothing But Green Lights. And their write-up was so good I don\’t want to try to improve upon it. They wield the glockenspiel, rather than playing it But I haven\’t heard nearly enough people talk about this band so I thought they should get another […]

  • Fireflies

    I don\’t remember how I heard this band, Fireflies.  Maybe I was googling twee.  Maybe I read about them on someone else\’s blog.  It doesn\’t matter.  This is great stuff.  All ethereal vocals and glockenspiel. The label\’s name is Music Is My Girlfriend, which is hilarious and awesome. The \”band\” which is just one guy has a […]

  • Twee Tuesday – Log Lady Train

    They\’re covering Lordi\’s Hardrock Hallelujah.
