Album Notes
From the land of sun and surf comes Sweetness. Three guys and a gal who ruthlessly pillage from only the finest pop music of the last five decades, strip it down to its essential hooks and curves, and meld it with lyrics about the longings, the pains, and the stupor of euphoric bliss that is life-in-your-twenties. No styles are safe; Motown meets indie rock, folk meets honky tonk. It's not pure confectionary syrupy pop, it's shiny and dirty, all about the highs of the young squandering life. It's like The Replacements tearing through the Belle & Sebastian songbook.

Dorothy Haßenpfeffer

an excellent tonic to stylelessness and poseurdom
The CD, and its songs, are short and sweet, like the combo's name and probably like most of its members. "I'm Not Sorry Anymore" makes me and my friends dance like insane characters loosed from a 1960s Peanuts cartoon, and I mean that in the most clinically precise description possible. Other standouts are "Rachel & Neil," and "The Ballad of You and Me," and "Angry Candy" (what other pop song, I ask you, references e.e. cummings so effortlessly?), but the whole album altogether is crunchy goodness. Like The Shins first album, "Ashtray Floors" wears its influences proudly and individually... and, like the Shins, I would not be surprised to see Sweetness guest star on an episode of "The Gilmore Girls."

surprise purchase
actually i was a little apprehensive to buy this album since we can only preview 2 of the songs.

but when it arrived today in the mail, i was totally into their songs~!!!

spellbound is definitely my favourite. but overall all the songs are catchy and perfect for morning commutes to work and keeping one feeling light and free.

its now in my ipod with the rest in my favourites playlists.
