Still need to give the new Allo Darlin' album another listen. Don't know why I only gave it one listen then put it away when I liked it, especially given their debut from a couple of years back was one of the best albums ever.

From the other thread

Yeah, I've heard both of the first two from B&S. Love Tigermilk, but was left cold by If You're Feeling Sinister. Which is odd, seeing as how they sound so similar. I've also become a Jens Lekman fan, though he may not be considered straight twee. Others I like, Camera Obscura, Dolly Mixture, Tiger Trap, The School, and the last Beat Happening album. Basically all twee I've heard other than Tigermilk's follow up, I've loved. Hit me with some recs if you want, I'd definitely dig in.

Yes, I much prefer Tigermilk to IYFS too and yeah Jens Lekman isn't really twee, just indie pop.

Well just as a few starters, the best ever indie pop records which are borderline twee imo are the first 2 Magnetic Fields' records.

But if you want full twee, get Talulah Gosh's comp Backwash, that is a bit noisier than most twee a bit like Tiger Trap, but is amazing and one of the few records the NME gave 10/10. Amelia Fletcher is basically the queen of twee and her other band Heavenly are even more well loved than TG, though I prefer TG myself.

Also, as I mentioned Allo Darlin's s/t debut album from a couple of years back is one of the best albums ever and easily the best twee album since Let's Get Out of This Country.

Then there's Black Tambourine too, they were probably the noisiest of all twee bands and only released 14 songs so you can get their entire discography on one record. "Throw Aggi Off the Bridge" in particular is legendary.

The Field Mice are one of the most legendary too, though I like their albums I'm never blown away by them, but their 2 big singles "Sensitive" and "Emma's House" are 2 of the best songs ever.

The Pastels are generally seen as the band who kick started the whole twee movement and influenced a lot of the earlier bands, but I've never been too big on them tbh.

Sometimes I go to my room for an hour and do nothing but lie on my bed and listen to "Throw Aggi Off the Bridge" 20 times in a row. It's just that good and addictive.

<3<3<3 It's so good.

Your Arms Around Me is like the sweetest song ever. If a boy ever played that to me on the guitar my heart would just melt and I'd fall in love with him no matter how ugly he was.

I don't know the what it actually is, but that song towards the end with the nonsense title is incredible. It gives me the misty eyes.

That Allo Darlin album is great stuff. Thanks for the rec! I'll say more about it when I have the time, but it is really really good.

e: That is, the one you posted on RYM
