Two sweeties who put their feet in Lawrence, Kansas and starting filling it with their special brand of tinny-beated, moog-enhanced pocket pop. Danny and Jen don’t like to play live, but everyone else loves it.
Beautiful pop songs, good lyrics, all very lo-fi and at the same time well-finished, and twee. Yeah, Transmittens!
They've been releasing their wonderful music via the also wonderful WeePOP! recs from London.
This time they're here with us instead!
And if now you're waiting for moog and casio sounds from them, well, think twice!
This album is all guitars, acoustic and electric, yeah perfect jingle jangle guitars.
I mean, the effective/distinctive drum machine is still there, so are the beautiful delicate vocals, but you can't hear any keyboard at all!
And there's some live drumming as well! And by drumming I mean Moe Tucker style, just so you get the idea.
Think of Softies, Jesus and Mary Chain, Beat Happening and Magnetic Fields, you're half-way there.
