Couple By Couple

I believe it was the estimable NY Mary over at PowerPop who first broke Malaysian poppers Couple to the needy New World, or at least to this dry corner of it. I loved them immediately and was mighty happy this week to hear kind words of greeting from band member, Aidil. Aidil gave me leave to post the two songs below, with promise of another to follow. Since a goodly number of visitors to this little cosa mia were ushered here by NY Mary in the first place, I’m sure many of you already know the songs, but here they are anyway, just in case. Oh, and here's the article in which Rolling Stone named Couple as one of the 25 Best Bands on MySpace. And if you haven't seen the video, PowerPop has it here. Irresistible.

Thank you for posting these 2 songs - even though I already have the album. I discovered them quite by accident when I read a post by Aidil on Powerpoplovers and checked out the band on Myspace. While these songs are among their best I would definitely recommend their whole alhum. I can't remember when I've been so excited about a new band. I've gotten to know Aidil a bit via IM and email and not only is he a super nice guy but he also really knows his music. If they ever come to NYC (fat chance I know) I will definitely be in the front row.

My contact with Aidil fully matches what you describe, and Couple's music convincingly speaks for itself. Thanks for your comment.
