as you’d have realized by now, i’m really interested in what people are waking up to. it’s such a personal question in a way, but it’s also such an intriguing one. mike from nothing but green lights shared recently, on a forum thread i started, that for him it was chairlift‘s “bruises”. turns out it’s also on some of the other music blogs i love, such as taylor’s blog and more recently, said the gramophone. anyway, the song (which happens to feature on the new ipod nano ads) is a delightful twee-pop casiotone duet of silly declarations of love and its awkward results that seem to go just fine together, something that will certainly bring a smile to your face any morning. and since we’re at twee-pop duets, here’s my other favorite one all the way back in 1992 by oxford band heavenly. “c is the heavenly option” is exactly what you think it is – a multiple choice song (that’s probably the only one that i know exists) with some obvious model answers.
mp3: chairlift – bruises
do pop down to the kanine records store to get your copy of chairlift’s does you inspire you album. good luck finding the heavenly one.
