We are bromeliad, idea, those pretty Meta
I will riddle you this (though it is not really a riddle, to be truthful, and even if it was one it would be a bit of a rubbish riddle, more like a fairly obvious and rhetorical question, anyway....). What connects bright and breezy Brazilian indie-pop, classic ye olde Australian twee, mad-as-hatters Isle of Wight C86, new Scottish indie-folk and MBV-esque Japanese shoegaze? Well, the answer is this oddly incoherent wee mix, innit? Oh, I know, very lazy of me. But it is Sunday, after all, so have half a heart and a tiny bit of forgiveness...
Pale Sunday - 'My punk girl' (1.31)
The Cat's Miaow - 'Seventeen' (The Sugargliders, Cover) (2.10)
Trixie's Big Red Motorbike - 'That's the end of that' (1.38)
Where We Lay Our Heads - 'Gies a wave' (4.40)
Oeil - 'Urban twilight' (3.22)
You can find out moar about the lovely words, here. (with thanks to Ruth Barker).
I would encourage you to give your discerning ears, sweet love and lots of money to these fine people, in particular. They 'make pretty sounds', as someone said to me at a Mark Kozelek gig.
