The Weddings

Near the top of my secret “Hopes for 2010” list sits the wish that the type of innocent indie-pop anyone can make in there living room. It’s not that farfecthed – “chillwave” is a similar on-the-fly genre where nostalgia escapism takes the place of starry-eyed innocence. In my hypothetical world, a band like The Weddings would be at the forefront of this twee movement. All the hallmarks are there – easy guitar strumming, lovey-dovey lyrics and far-from-professional singing. Not to mention a recording quality on the same level of The Moldy Peaches. The group has a new EP out blessed with the oh-so-appropriate name Broken Hearts. Just in time to get all melancholy in the Spring!
