Fanfarlo

In a quest to dispel the weather (I mean, it is actually snowing/hail stoning in March... Unimpressed!) with happyhappyhappy music Fanfarlo are the newest order of the day to close your eyes and pretend the sound of hail stones against the window is really a cool summer breeze / bee's trying to get in or something.
Basically it's jingly jangly music which is so feel good it becomes a little bit wrong. A wondrous amount of instrument are involved, the affectionately named 'glock', banjo and mandolin make an appearance and it's all a bit Belle and Sebastian with elements of Pavement whispering in the vocals. The same thing that's got people physically shaking with excitement about Vampire Weekend can be seen in them. Oh, its all a bit folksy but not just that they've managed to squash feelings, charm and melody into perfect pop song length. And they're unsigned (not for long I shouldn't think). Songs like "Harold T Wilkins" and "...Outsiders" have a subtle eloquence and it seems to literally shit sunshine and summertime; and despite that horrible imagery their songs really are delicate with a sort of happy around the edges glow.
