The Faintest Ideas: "Nosebleeders On The Track"


The Faintest Ideas

Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, The Faintest Ideas (formerly the Javelins) are the kind of jangly noise pop that brings to mind bands like Boyracer or Television Personalities. Their new album What Goes Up Must Calm Down somehow slipped under my radar when it was released by Magic Marker back around late October. I've got ahold of it now though, and I think I'm in love. If you like your twee pop to be a little dirty, a little more "classic C86," then these guys are for you!

[MP3]: The Faintest Ideas :: Nosebleeders on the Track (Highly Rec'd!!!)
I cannot stop listening to this song. It's one of those songs that makes me wish I played guitar; there's just something about those super-fast downstrokes that make me wanna be up on stage with a guitar doing the same thing. If the jangle alone isn't enough to grab you, the song is full of catchy lines about being nerdy and ugly: "It's no picnic, but we don't have the looks / We compensate that by reading books." It's quick, concise, and full of energy: The perfect pop song!

Also, look at this great news!

The third installment of Parenthetical Girls' semi-annual Christmas series, "A Parenthetical Girls Family Christmas" was hastily written and recorded in October of this year. The first EP we've offered for public sale, the CDs quickly sold out–and as such, we've decided to offer our friends a gift in this most callous of seasons, in the form of a free download.

A Parenthetical Girls Family Christmas!

Happy Holidays,
Slender Means Society & Parenthetical Girls

So there you go! Everyone that was looking for it, it's now a free download!

I'm not surprised that they changed their name. There's some Detroit band called Javelins aswell, it was quite confusing.

With Magic Marker releasing The Manhattan Love Suicides, The Faintest Ideas, and Tullycraft they appear to be building a pop empire!
