Math and Physics Club

I've been contemplating on sharing some slightly aged twee pop lately, but the issue was settled when I found a new release by Math and Physics Club with me choosing to give out both. This is basically the entire discography of Math and Physics Club, in which one could notice the gap between full-length albums and even from the last EP and the newest release. This Seattle-based band makes some of the sweetest indie pop to be had. The sweet cheerful pop they make similar to several bands of from Australia on Matinee Recordings and Candle Records such as The Lucksmiths and The Mabels, as well as American groups like The Galactic Heroes, The Fairways and Le Coupe. It seems slightly different from the indie pop/twee groups that have been produced in large numbers in Iceland and Sweden in the last few years, but not terrible distant. Despite all of the songs they make being sweet as hell, the newer album has a more cheerful feel achieved mostly by lighter vocals and different instrumentation. Also note the Belle & Sebastian-style album art with the monochromatic photography. If you're into twee at all, this is a band to get.

To be had here:
