indie pop purity/dream(y) pop
s.f. band. kinda popular in the 90's.
this album is hooky and hypnotic. takes all the pop hooks it can from 70's a.m. pop, disco, and ...krautrock (yep).
layered in male/female harmonies.
great album=already on my best of '12.
(note; roddy bottom, ex-faith no more, is a member)
RIYL: abba, beach boys, sterolab, redd kross, et al.
MR ESQ SEZ: MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW!
PLAY THESE TRACKS: ANY/PUT ON RANDOM/THAT GOOD
[whole track by track on front cover. forgot to post before I printed out. not gonna write whole thing over, so fuck you. but here's some funny highlights]:
*2 abba goes krautrocky and starts punching people on the dance floor.
*4. the melodrama!
9. sounds like it's sung by demonic teddy bears...
