Essential Twee!

If you have any affinity for indie-pop, twee, or guitar-pop in general, you must purchase this album. Talulah Gosh is often cited as a mere predecessor for later indie-pop bands, but Backwash should be in every indie music fan's library. The vocals are sweet and girlish, and the guitars jangle and chime with giddy energy. The melodies will stick in your head, and the instrumentation is invigorating. Most of the cuts on this album are catchy, playful, and fun. This is one of my very favorite albums, and anyone mildly interested should definitely buy it; you will not regret it. Standout tracks include "Don't Go Away," "My Boy Says," and "The Girl With the Strawberry Hair," but all of the tracks are worth listening to.
