Keep your voice down. I've got a secret. No, I can't tell you, it wouldn't be much of a secret if I could, would it? I'll give you a hint though, I heard it from Camila, and she heard it from Colin, and it's wonderful. Almost as wonderful as the new WeePOP! Let's Wisper EP. Or maybe a little more. I'm not so sure, but I do know those four tracks on that little CD are the best four consecutive tracks I've heard in a long time. I also know Let's Whisper are a bunch of sadists. Well, two sadists anyways. Why would I say that? Because they schemed a diabolical scheme to rope unsuspecting listeners in with the catchy and oddly familiar "California Girls" before shutting off the power and whispering sweet nothings on "Snowy Sunday." You know what they do next? They turn the wintertime lull into a fucking discotheque with Colin imploring to "Meet Me on the Dance Floor." And once you're in the groove, bopping and shaking and shimmying, the music dies and you're back in Vermont in the middle of a fucking snowstorm with "Holly in Wintertime." Colin and Dana, you're the worst. Just for that, I'm telling everyone your dirty little secret...the one about Let's Whisper putting out a full length album on WeePOP!

Because I can...

Speaking of Darren Hayman

He has a new album coming out sometime soon on Fortuna POP! I don't know much besides the title, Essex Arms, and that there's a track on it called "Two Tree Island." I'm also not sure of the influence an outside conversation-of-sorts is having on how I'm interpreting it; there is an awful lot of talk of pushing and wood. Regardless, it's a catchy little folkestral tune with banjos and cellos and a uke and some other things backing the possible smut.

It's not going to be a single or anything, but there's a pretty Super 8 video for it anyways.
