Synopsis

Amazon.com
In love with the summer pop sounds of Sleater-Kinney offshoot Cadallaca's self-titled debut? Well, their own Sarah Dougher plays Farfisa organ on this CD, the Portland, Oregon, trio's fourth full-length album. In love with Beat Happening's disarming, joyful innocence and the way pop music can often reinvigorate even the weariest of souls? Look no further than "Market Size," with its minimal analog instrumentation and sweet boy voice, recalling New Zealand guitar band the Chills' classic "Pink Frost" or something all sticky and cool and adorable (like ice cream, perhaps?). In love with simple songs about sadness and trust? Good. "Bricks of Gold" is an unadorned trembling love song, with female harmonies to sigh for. Retarded, sexy, and very, very succulent: the lo-fi Northwest sound has rarely seemed so beguiling. --Everett True

"simple, hooky and eminantly listenable. oftentimes rocking and suprisingly sincere THIS is the album that i have always been waiting for someone to make..."
Elegantly sparse but not too "twee"

"The playing and production on this record is very simple but mature, avoiding the annoyingly sweet or twee sound of many K Records releases. The songs are great - reminiscent of New Zealand's The Bats in their boy/girl harmonies. I haven't heard farfisa organ put to such good use since the Yachts from the early days of new wave. A great summer record."
