Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

I love it when folks get right to the point. Got a hook? Give it to me right away! No need to noodle around and skirt around the chorus – hop to it!

Finally, a podcast that fulfills my need for instant gratification.

Since the folks at Not Quite Rocket Science began their podcasting a couple months ago, I've been enjoying their comps. Last week's podcast is one of my favorites yet. It is group of their shortie/sweet songs… and they've gathered some of my favorites (and new favorites I hadn't heard before). The thing is, as soon as you hear a song you like, you have to quick and check the set list or else it will be long over.
