Album Review
Reviewed 2009-12-11 
Catchy, catchy, earnest lo-fi twee-pop from SF via Portland. Power chords and female vocals w/ 60s pop harmonies. All tracks save four are well under 3:00. With 57 tracks on 2 discs and all songs pretty much the same, I am not doing track reviews, just picks & sporadic notes.

RIYL: Aislers Set, Mirah, Moldy Peaches, Tiger Trap, Sarah Records.

DISC 1: generally more upbeat, catchier tunes
picks: 2, 4, 6, 8, 13, 15,
slower: 5, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 25, 30, 31
29: harmony experiment, no lyrics.

DISC 2: generally slower, lonelier, fans-only tunes
picks: 1, 8, 9, 21, 22
1: nice Dylan cover from a Mates of State split 7”
20: instrumental guitar (0:40)
24: very pretty Zombies cover
25: crowd noise at a live show; not a song
26: ironic drum-machine missy elliott cover. duet w/ and produced by Casiotone for the Painfully Alone.
