Sun Giant and English House are early favourites.

Fleet Foxes are pretty awesome. I bet you could put English House on a 70s comp and no one would know the difference.

I like the cover of the Sun Giant ep.

I'd love to pretend you read the latest post on my blog from last week and through this found out about this song.

(I know you did not.)

What I mean to say is, I like it/them a lot too.

Has anyone heard Vivian Girls? They're exciting in a Black Tambourine/Shop Assistants kind of way. Really quite lo-fi, not perfect, just ace.

oooh i was reading about the actual vivian girls in grayson perry's autobiography. they were the life work of this mad genius called henry something who spent his entire adult life secretly creating this story and artwork of a sci-fi child slave rebellion against their adult masters. except the vivian girls didn't wear clothes. and a lot of the girls had cocks. anyway his landlord found all this exceptional art covering the walls of house after henry died and luckily kept it all.

what i'm trying to say is that marianthi is a massive paedo. i shall endevour to check them out.

A couple of recent discoveries this end....

The Meeting Places - Not *quite* shoegaze, but, not far off, and obviously Cocteaus influenced...love the music, although, not sure about the vocals....

Rip KC - This could have come out on Siesta...a mixture of indiepop, psych-pop and easy...I suspect this will get played a lot over the summer...

I've really liked these for a few years now. If you're into US dreampoppy stuff you should definitely have a listen.

argh, crazy! there used to be an amazing australian band called the vivian girls. they were super-awesome kind of post-punky/Lilliput/new wave stuff with nice synths and things.
so i'm a bit upset to hear of another band by that name, even if it is only fair since the vivs broke up years ago.

i guess i'll check the new ones out anyway!

saw them in oakland sunday night with the mantles and a bunch of experimental/improv groups. weird line-up. vivian girls were awesome, super noisy and energetic. they were selling their album at the show, limited to 500 so i'd imagine they'll go soon. you can get it from the label: http://www.myspace.com/mauledbytigers" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Thanks Mike! I ordered the album last week, on the strength of 'Wild Eyes' alone. I love that song. They're playing in NYC while I'm there but it looks like it'll overlap with the Orchids and the Pains and I can't miss those. Gah! I hope they make it to the UK soon.
