Here is some unabashedly adorable, lo-fi twee (is there any other kind?) from wonderful WeePOP! Records, because it was such a sunny day today. And if you ask me, Let's Whisper is among the best out there.
The Make me Smile EP does not exhibit the deliberate amateurish bedroom recording values and unsteady performance as some other bands make them, which I find a plus. The clarity and simple but capable instrumentation highlight the flawless compositions. Hey Sunshine and Ice Cream are really sunny and will bring a wide smile to your face that's impossible to wipe away. However, Dylan's Song and Tender Circles are brilliantly bittersweet and you'll have to put up a fight not to let them affect your mood just as much. In a nutshell: tender harmonies and happy-sad melodies galore.
  1. Dylan's song
  2. Open road
  3. Hey sunshine
  4. When you were eating ice cream
  5. Tender circles
  6. Dylan's song (demo version)
