Continuing in an occassional series of gentle mixtape killerz:
I've been unsuccessfully trying to stay away from this band for more than a year. I have refused to buy the album in used cd stores on three seperate occasions. I told myself that I didn't need to listen to flapper folk, retirement home swing, or grandmaphone ballands. I inisted that I didn't need to listen two girls who probably had imaginary friends until middle school. The oldest living Confederate widow could form a group with the last Irish lass to see a fairy: whatever dude.
Try as I might, the Ditty Bops just refused to put up with my shit, and just drilled themselves into my head anyway. "Ooh La La" was an early favorite, but right now I'm really enjoying this one right here. I'm warning you, it sounds like innocuous featherweight fairy pop, but these poet chicks do not fuck around.The Ditty Bops- Gentle Sheep
ps- A., the girl who is cooler than me and went to Joanna Newsom High School, was into them waaaay before me.
