tgiff: Volume 6

Posted in Uncategorized by Joie on July 25, 2008

THE SCOOP:  Summer Edition, post-Mamma Mia!

Pacific!:  Taking a cue from Pan’s Labyrinth?  Longtime childhood friends from Gothenburg, Sweden, Daniel and Björn lost and found each other a few years ago, decided to rent a studio together and make electronic pop for a living.  Oh yeah, they toured with Justice for a while.

Think:  Beach Boys + PBJ + Royskopp

Latest album:  Reveries

Pacific! – Sunset Boulevard

Pacific! – Number One

Best “every frame can be my silkscreen T-shirt” video:

Vodpod videos no longer available.


PAS/CAL:  This Detroit-based band has been scattering their EPs around for years, and lucky attendees of their concerts described them as “all dressed up in deceptively catchy and meticulously arranged tunes with hooks that would make Johnny Marr jealous and turn Serge Gainsbourg’s head.”  A perfect recipe for unabashed twee under the cloudy skies of summer in San Francisco.

Think: Of Montreal + The Zombies + Final Fantasy

Latest Album:  I Was Raised on Mark, Matthew, Luke, & Laura

PAS/CAL – Summer is Almost Here

PAS/CAL – You Were Too Old for Me

Why pay at all when you’re at Payless?
