We Can Have Fun Myspace

This is a split I did under the name We Can Have Fun with my friend Kevin from Fung Wah Bus?. My side is reminiscent of They Might Be Giants and the Moldy Peaches. Kevin’s side reminds me a lot Bright Eyes and Elliott Smith. We both recorded these songs in our bedroom. I hope you enjoy it.

A really warm, up-beat bunch of live recordings chock full of harmonies and happiness. Girl Band are some ladies from other bands in California all in this one band. They rely on their voices a good bit, sometimes even doing acapella songs. This album is really good, you’ll like it.

I’m going to start taking the sounds like from Myspaces.

Math the Band Myspace

Here’s a split from two of the finest bands around. Ten perfect pop songs. I’ve already said so much about each band, so I don’t think there would be any point in my diving in further.

Myspace

34 emotional, MIDI-keyboard induced songs about one girl. Think lo-fi twee + Magnetic Fields + Casiotone For The Painfully Alone. Sounds really homemade which is a good thing.

Wow, I am seriously blown away by this band. This is perfect keyboard-based twee-pop. It’s not self-depressive like the band’s name implies, quite the opposite. So much fun, by the end of these four songs you’ll wish there were more, but instead you’ll go back and re-listen to it all singing, “Baseeeeballll in Chinnnaaaaa”. I wish I had a better write-up, just get this.

I think at this point in my life twee-pop is my favorite genre. I love everything about it, and I try to listen to a lot of it. So when Jacob Borshard stuck out from the rest of the bunch I knew I found a special artist. Borshard plays the ukulele with literally perfect pop melodies and hooks. I’m not kidding, the man makes the transition from C major to C minor sound so good. The songs are a blend of up-beat, happy tunes with heartfelt lyrics about love. It’s never goofy or anything like that, just super sweet. This album is also home-recorded, yet it sounds much better than most studio work. So for the love of your ears, download this.

Watercolor Paintings Myspace

Yay! A split from two of my favorite bands! This features both bands using pretty different instrumentation than their standard fare. That means Blanket Truth strays away from their typical baritone ukulele jam(z) and hits the keyboards. Lots of sampled MIDI drum beats behind tape hiss. It’s really good and really catchy; you’ll like that side. Watercolor Paintings steps away from the baritone ukulele and harp normalness and move to some toy instruments, keyboard, and a Beat Happening song. Their side also features one of my favorite songs ever, “Finders Keepers”. It’s really good and really catchy; you’ll like that side. DOWNLOAD.

P.S. I listen to too much twee. I have a problem.
