The Little Ones - Morning Tide (2008)

The Little Ones Part II or how did I become such a fanboy? The album is every bit as fun as I hoped - just as good if not better than everything they released before and only two songs were on the preceding EPs. The title song kicks things off with a rolling drumbeat and a series of backing "Do do do do's". Of course I'm hooked, I'm a sucker for playful backing vocals. After two great songs from their EPs, "Gregory's Chant" builds from a laid back to blissful and upbeat (which could generally describe the range for the album) and then more nonsense backing vocals. Sweet. It's worth checking out if you like the Beach Boys/Zombies/Left Banke vein of sunshine pop.

Just revisited this album and it still sounds great.
