It has been too long. Normally I would write about bands I should have written about weeks ago, but here I am, not doing that. Why? Because Blanket Music is delightful and still fresh in my mind as being delightful. If you took some of the upbeat twee out of Belle & Sebastian’s Dear Catastrophe Waitress, you would be left with Blanket Music, more or less. Even the vocals, though since BM’s singer does not appreciate such comparisons, it will be said that his voice evokes a certain amount of Ben Kweller at times. How utterly delightful. And they’re from Oregon! Big up the local bands or something of that nature.
