"And they love call and response"

Sunny Intervals
Andy from Pocketbooks has a solo side project, Sunny Intervals, and has recently released his debut EP on WeePOP! Records. The Call And Response EP is just the kind of lovely lo-fi pop you'd be expecting if you've ever heard Pocketbooks. And since the weather has turned a bit grim and miserable, it was a real pick-me-up when this cheery gem in its beautifully hand-made cardboard sleeve, complete with mini insert, landed in my frozen hands. From the second that Let The City Run Away With Us chimes in, it's like a whirlwind romance! You can't help but be swept along with the stories of London nights out, train trips and things. The delicate bedroom keyboard sound is beefed up a bit with guitar backing and piano parts that make this EP really something special.

This project is so lo-fi that the Sunny Intervals website is on Geocities - imagine that! Seriously, there's plenty more tracks to listen to there, but if I were you, I'd head straight over to WeePOP! and get yourself a copy of the limited release Sunny Intervals EP.

You can see Sunny Intervals live on the 18th November at The Enterprise in London. It's a Pop, Look and Listen gig with Misty Roses and previously blogged about Hong Kong In The 60s (who incidentally have just put two new tracks up to stream on their myspace page. Also putting new tracks up on myspace are TMAP favourites Hari and Aino).

That band round-up was twee-mendous. WeePOP! are an ace label; nice line in lollies, too!
