THE PURPLE CRAYONS (Hardlycore)

Obscure coed pop band who love merry-go-round keyboard/organ/piano melodies and toy-radio compressed girl vocals. Quintessential K Records disciple gestures. Low-mixed lyrics about…love? Dreamy and sad and wishing it was 1987-1992 and Olympia, WA everywhere. Also: enough ivory tickling for even the most fervent Ben Folds fan. Comes with a Scooby Doo ticket, a heavily heart-stamped J-card, and pertinent Myspace URLs. Tape is spray-painted pink and purple to get you in the mood.
