Online Romances Can Be Good

Growing up I was always infatuated with 60's girl groups and music from that era.  I think it was really the Wall of Sound that was so captivating to me.  Now, bands with a similar sound are called "Twee" or "Chamber Pop."  Of that sound it had mostly been dominated by European bands like Belle & Sabastian and Camera Obscura.  Now you can add a Portland, OR band to that list:  The Online Romance.

Not only is their name effin sweet, but so is their sound.  Their Spectorian Wall of Sound is dominated by horns that give them a big, full sound.  "Ladybug, Don't Smile" is a song off of their forthcoming album.
