The Tidy Ups are a Swedish Twee Pop band that existed from 2002 till 2006, one of their members is Jenny Westerlund who plays in Strawberry Fair and Funday Mornings. Perfect cute twee songs.. I specially recommend you "Beauvais" , probably one of the most beautiful songs I've heard in a while...
Here is an album that I know very little about! The only mention of it I've found online says that it has never been released. It could be mislabeled. Either way it's quite an enjoyable example of "early electronic bedroom pop".
Mother of bands such as Acid House Kings, The Legends and Club 8, Poprace released only 2 singles, this was their first one. If you love Swedish pop this in one basic album that you must definitely have!
A Dolly Mixture collection from Japan that collects three alternate versions of previously released songs and one unreleased song. The recordings sound great, much better than Demonstration Tapes. The better production values don't take away from the songs' charm, if anything they add energy to the songs. The song My Rainbow Valley is a wonderful surprise as well. Infectiously catchy! Highly recommended!
The band was formed in April 1998, when Ruth, Angel Pop, Rafa and Jose Alberto decided to start writing happy, dreamy pop songs, inspired by some of their faves: HEAVENLY, LOS FRESONES REBELDES, pop based on crystal-like guitars and naive female vocals. They got the name for the band: VACACIONES - the Spanish word for "holidays". For them, holidays mean the best moments of the year, when we can escape from the daily grind.
God Help The Girl is a musical film written by Stuart Murdoch of Belle and Sebastian. He is currently working on a soundtrack album for the record, recording a number of demos with the members of Belle and Sebastian and different vocalists, but here are the three songs that are available.

Track List: 1. Funny Little Frog 2. The Psychiatrist is In 3. Perfection as a Hipster
No, it's not Godard's movie "Bande a Part". It's a beautiful pop band based in Spain, Coral and Javi (their members) talk about how they met each other in a sunny afternoon having a Vermouth in St. Tropez, in that time they were Jean Paul and Marie.. someone confused them as a couple of bank robbers, so they decide to change their names to Javi and Coral and live under the identity of playing in Band a Part, touring the world, from Liverpool, Torremolinos to Kyoto, running away from justice....
