The Weepies — Be My Thrill (Nettwerk Records)
Aw, you guys, we’ve got another couple on this week’s New Music Tuesday scene! This is about as much warm fuzziness as I can handle and if I don’t hug someone in five minutes I might just burst. Jenny and Johnny can only hope to remain as cute and loving as Deb Talan and Steve Tannen. For the last nine years, the married (with children) indie-poppers have been making dreamy harmony together. If you’re a fan of The New Pornographers, check these two out.
Shonen Knife— Free Time (Good Charamel)
Ok, so not much has changed since the last time we checked in with Shonen Knife but their music still puts a smile on my face. I can’t say I’d listen to this on repeat (or even all the way through) but every now and then, if a song came on I’d bob my head and maybe do a little rock ‘n roll twist.
Honorable Mentions: Rabbit (super cute), Klaxons, Lyfe Jennings, Film School and Goo Goo Dolls.
What do you think darlings? Did I miss anyone? Come back tomorrow for another installment of Women to Listen to!
