Latest listening: Supertalented/ Jane Joyd

Supertalented is Noa Kurzweil and friends: they make short, weird, lo-fi pop tunes about, well, cheesecake and potatoes and things... Weight Watchers and Plus Size are the two albums she's released on netlabel Birdsong and every song is shorter and sweeter than the next. The tag line is: "Supertalented are super Lo-Fi for Superpeople." High five! Thanks to Greg Healey for the tip.

Next a tip from a cool Spanish indie Origami Records, Jane Joyd and her 'Shy Little Jane Presents: The Dramatic Tale Of Her Animals' EP. Joyd's voice is truly something else and these sparse tunes she puts together with dramatic orchestrations are immediately compelling.
