Twee Pop

ChrisBrimstone  said about 6 years ago  or at  9:44AM on Wednesday, January 16 2008 in music

A general thread on all things twee. Your definition my vary from mine - i don't have much of the c68 stuff. Spend the morning listening to the Raylenes, Belle & Sebastian, early Architecture in Helsinki, Boy Least Likely To and Saturday Looks Good To Me... but i need more, more, MORE twee pop!

recomendations?


Ohyeah  said about 6 years ago:

i recommend that you stop encouraging them.


ChrisBrimstone  said about 6 years ago:

newmeatloaf to thread... sliced bread almost count, actually. Jens Lekman as well... anything on Candle Records (RIP)

Also - you could check out my thread which kind of died...


southernbelle  said about 6 years ago:

Heavenly. Though they mainly just annoy the hell out of me.

Do you have ''One, Two, Twee''?


daveyaviator  said about 6 years ago:

Gorky's Zygotic Mynci


ChrisBrimstone  said about 6 years ago:

no, i don't. where would i find it?

i've got some Moldy Peaches and old Calvin Johnson stuff, which is technically twee... but a bit rougher/dirtier then i usually like


southernbelle  said about 6 years ago:

on the internets

I don't like it though.

Hmmm. This is making me reconsider whether I even like twee.


red menace  said about 6 years ago:

the Talulah Gosh > Heavenly > Marine Research > Tender Trap lineage could be a fruitful journey for you.

please don't remind me of AiH's Great Betrayal, dicko

Polyphonic Spree
Minus Story
Los Campesinos
I'm from Barcelona
Danielson

Not a fan of all those, but they fit the twee-pop description.


ChrisBrimstone  said about 6 years ago:

Polyphonic Spree are great... bit more wide-scale then what i'm thinking but i dig them. i'll check out the rest of those!


blake3030  said about 6 years ago:

Danielson is the best in that list. You'll love him and his family because they're even more Christian than Sufjan Stevens.


Earl Brutus  said about 6 years ago:

check out the skatterbrain.org blog.


Collaterly_Sisters  said about 6 years ago:

I think a lot of that Swedish prettiness fits in here. Juni Jarvi is rather nice -do listen.

If you want to research some earlier stuff, I recall Heb posted some good links in the C86 thread.


de.foxus  said about 6 years ago:

the brunettes is about as twee as i will go.


ChrisBrimstone  said about 6 years ago:

they're a fun band...they're about as twee-dance as i will go, actually


emmy hennings  said about 6 years ago:

Postcard Records

THE END (AGAIN)

Thanks Psyclops! Rad stuff there for sure...


anorakhighst  said about 5 years ago:

The members of Pocketbooks (or at least Emma, Daniel and Ian) are regulars on the London indiepop scene. Ian (the bassist) co-ran a night named Spiral Scratch here for a while.


TagoMago  said about 5 years ago:

Everything outside of that Sarah Records stuff is mostly horrible. I can only really stomach The Softies and maybe some Camera Obscure but most of it is beyond gay.


Psyclops  said about 5 years ago:

best you head back to to the ball sniffers thead then tago (once you're done watching the boring old cricket).


storeboughtcool  said about 5 years ago:

The heavily Tullycraft influenced fresh Melbourne folks Peter Dickybird are rather delightfully twee


Earl Brutus  said about 4 years ago:

Celestial make a sparkling guitar pop sound. It's roots are firmly planted in the early days of Creation records and Sarah Records. Back in the days when a 7'' record was something to be cherished and pop music was a thing of beauty. Celestial understand the classic pop song.

Great stuff, albums called Dream On.


Urquhart Bluff  said about 4 years ago:

Did you write that Earl? That brought a tear to my eye.


anorakhighst  said about 4 years ago:

Celestial are from Sweden, right?

Anyone like Dolly Mixture?
Their stuff is out-of-print.
I really want to get the boxset Everything And More, at least digital. Can't buy them legally though.
I downloaded their only studio album (27 trks!) but want more.

Tramdriver  said about 1 year ago:

Beat Happening seem twee to me - probably the lyrics as much as anything (not that I know anything about twee.. or anything else...).



tugboat  said about 1 year ago:

Awwwww My Little Airport!
Me and them go way back. Harbour Records represent!


tugboat  said about 1 year ago:

Anyone got a copy of Dolly Mixture's Everything And More boxset?
I'm happy to pay for digitals of CD2 and 3


ChrisBrimstone  said about 1 year ago:

has anyone heard of The Arrogants? Really fun, defunct twee band


electricsound  said about 1 year ago:

carwashhair  said about 1 year ago:

gets laughs, deserves respect.
