Thursday Twee

The Ramones arrive to save the day

The Ramones

Underneath those leather jackets, behind the raw tireless sound and in-your-face attitude, beyond "Punk", lies some of the best pop music that has ever graced this sad and beautiful world.

Well kids, there's an indiepop tribute!


No More of Your Fairy Stories - An indiepop loveletter to the Ramones (various artists) from Precordial Catch Records

Friday on Twee Time, I will be playing selected tracks from this sold-out compilation. For now, how about a little taste of what's to come?

Today's track Don't Go by The Pains of Being Pure at Heart (composed by Joey Ramone)

Thanks to Taylor for the heads up!

Wednesday Twee

This is the first installment of the Daily Twee, wherein I post little twee things for your viewing, reading, and listening pleasure... every day of the week! Expect music, video, links, quotes, show and CD reviews, listings, news, "tweevia" (trivia), and images of cute kittens and Blythe dolls.

Today's quote is from my friend Sam:

You know you're an old washed up indie pop scenester when you listen to some new band and it sounds like Aislers Set or Talulah Gosh to you but all the reviews compare it to Best Coast and Vivian Girls.

Today's video You're Kidding Aren't You by the Field Mice. From the 10" mini album Snowball (Sarah 402), released in 1989.

Today's track Dream Baby Dream by Black Tambourine. From the compilation Black Tambourine (Slumberland), released in 2010, which has their complete recordings and six new songs.

Today's Tweevia Dream Baby Dream is a cover, originally recorded by the protopunk band Suicide.
