Glow Cats - Cat Bits cd

(Jigsaw Records, PZL084)

I first heard this Danish band earlier this year thanks to their debut (physical) release on Beta Snake Records, and instantly loved them, as they encapsulated everything that was good about the Swedish indiepop explosion of the mid '00s (think Nixon, Funday Mornings, Dorotea...). Their songs were concise, they were filled with jangly guitars and/or simple keyboards, and most importantly, they were just pure, innocent fun. They sound like they don't take much seriously, singing about things like being a cat, playing air guitar, procrastination and even the Quirky Girl Crafter (look her up!). The disc starts out with four brand new songs, recorded by the band's current line-up, followed by a couple dozen songs from throughout their existence, with a variety of personnel, instrumentation and recording locations/qualities. Put 'em all together, though, and you've got yourself a fun hour ahead of you!

Not limited. All songs written by Glow Cats except track 25 by the Go-Betweens. Available digitally on Bandcamp.
