I first heard Lawrence, Kansas' own Transmittens almost a year ago when WeePOP! released their first mini-album, Our Dreams. At that time they sounded a bit like the Deirdres, playing lush little pop songs full of bells and what have you. Well, fast forward to the now and they've already got another mini-album out on WeePOP! and this one is called We Disappear. Things are a little bit different this time around, but "catchy little pop song"s would still be a pretty solid descriptor. The album end up being somewhat stylistically split between, well, the songs with synth and the songs without synth. Personally, I think it's the latter that make We Disappear so charming and keep me coming back to it. Songs like "Holiday", "Something Else", and "Blue Whale" are little gems.
