Shame there's only like 30 seconds of them actually playing, that's the worst part as far as I'm concerned.

The Bombettes plotting album, short tour

The Bombettes are working on writing material for their debut full-length which they hope to record in June. They also plan on doing a short tour in Sweden, Denmark and Germany come July, so keep an eye out for that as well.

MP3: Pintandwefall - Bird of the birds

Pintandwefall are a fiery girl-punk combo from Finland who are slowly, but surely getting the widespread attention they deserve. I know that the first time I heard them, I was immediately won over, I just haven't been as good about pressing the issue as I should. They're kind of like a slightly less-intimidating version of The Bombettes; still tough, but also very cute (though never cloying). One of their (many) charms is their stunting use of language -- I don't think it's so much an ESL thing, I think it's more intentional than that, though their foreignness does indeed help them get away with it. Regardless, the la-la-las and da-doo-das say just as much to me as the actual lyrics, which are beside the point.
