. . .noon, afternoon, night, whatever, promises satisfying sonics. The excellent Roque at the excellent Mira el Péndulo has started up a small label called Cloudberry, which is in the process of issuing nine 3-inch cd-r's from a multinational cast of jangleurs. Jangle, fuzz, power chords, Farfisa fun, voices ranging from hebetic to munchkinesque, deeply philosophical lyrics, all the standard stuff of le twee are here in delightful abundance. I'm posting five of my favorites, plus one by Liechtenstein I found by clicking links at the Cloudberry website. I left some behind in case you are in a mood adventurous. Tweest and sigh, people.
