The Latest Craze
AHHHHHHHHHH!!! EEEEEE!!! OOOOMMMMIGODDDDDD!!! (read like a crazed, screaming, teenage Beatles fan)
I found a new group I totally dig. The Pipettes! I'd just about turn straight for them, they're that dreamy.
After listening to the new Peaches album all month (and loving it), I needed a break from the tough, bad-ass act. (don't we all sometimes?) It was then that I chanced upon the Pipettes. They're a girl group from the UK, who sound like they've been brought to the future from the sunny, wholesome, 60's girl-group era.
Don't let their retro stylings fool you though – I think they should be considered post-retro. They're more spunky and individually unique than those smiling "fem-bot-esque" do-wop singers from the past.
