King Khan and the Shrines' latest album, The Supreme Genius of King Khan and the Shrines. Doo-wop plus acid n' garage rock, it's brilliant and'll be in the mediaf1re thread within the hour.

In that case, I recommend a fantastic Nu-Jazz group aptly titled "Kyoto Jazz Massive". As you can tell, they are from Japan. It is happy, in my opinion, but I don't seem to have the same idea of happy as other people.

Okay, this is a little tricky, since Most of the artists i like can do both happy and sad, it's a little tough to find bands or specific albums that are nearly all happy or at least upbeat. Here goes anyways.

The Minders- Hooray for Tuesday

Manitoba (now Caribou)- Up in Flames

Beulah- When Your Heartstrings Break

Junior senior (duh)

Boards of Canada- On The Campfire Headphase there is a track called Dayvan Cowboy. It is the best song. I wouldn't call the rest of the record exceedingly happy though. It's pretty even-keeled.

Ella Fitzgerald- I don't know if you could call her music universally happy, but it sure as hell makes me happy.

It's kind of a sad album, actually.  Well, some of the lyrics are.  But damn if "Emma Blowgun's Last Stand" ain't a fine, upbeat song.

Also: Listen to The Apples In Stereo.

I know we say this in every thread but if the first album by the New Pornographers called Mass Romantic doesn't make you smile like you might upon discovering you now shit diamonds then you're probably doomed to a life of misery.

I thought it was The Flaming Lips' Soft Bulletin that warranted this description.

At the very least I would suggest Electric Version can be just as, if not more, effective.

I think everything I listen to is happy music, but maybe I just have trouble differentiating between music that is happy and music that makes me happy. Anyway maybe some of these:

Acid House Kings
Adventures in Stereo
Aislers Set
All Girl Summer Fun Band
Architecture in Helsinki
the Brady Bunch
Broadcast
Brunettes
Essex Green
La Buena Vida
Manhattan Love Suicides
Maybellines
Pastel Collision
Pernice Bros.
Pipas

Good call on "Dayvan Cowboy".  The video is pretty fly, too.

I tend to listen to the Unicorns Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone when I want happy music.

Elf Power >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Beulah

Especially the albums When the Red King Comes and The Winter is Coming.

But if you want REALLY happy get some twee-indiepop or cuddlecore.  I think two Cub albums are still in the mediafire thread.  The Vaselines.  All Girl Summer Fun Band.  The Shop Assistants.  etc.

Yes.  There is.

"But, between riot grrrl and Veruca Salt's American Thighs, the indie scene has crept slowly into mainstream suburban bedrooms as it has upped the cute quotient. The transition to strip-malls has transformed grrrls into girls and made cuteness a selling point. Merry-Go-Round dresses up their storefront mannequins like Bikini Kill's Tobi Vail and Kathi Wilcox; X-girl fashions are worn on "90210"; and Juliana Hatfield guest starred as an angel in the Christmas episode of the teen-driven drama, "My So-Called Life."

And bands such as Bunnygrunt, Tummy Ache, Tully Craft, Cub, Grover, Pest 5000, the Softies, Emily's Sassy Lime, the Rickets, Delightful Little Nothings, Heavenly and Strawberry Story are playing up to those images. The now split-up Tiger Trap once did a show on roller skates. Cub has given presents to its audience and played shows in their pajamas and LA's Polar Goldie Cats wear backpacks on stage.

"For years and years we've had a like Maximum Rock 'n' Roll scene with old-school punk stuff, it just got kind of old," says Sean Tollefson, 26, singer and bassist in the now-defunct Crayon and currently in Six Cents and Natalie, and Tully Craft.

"Maybe it's a reaction to that. It was like how rockin' can we be. It could be how cute can we be. Cuteness can still be punk but in a different way," he said.

Cub's bassist and singer, Lisa Marr, sees little value in plain old punk shock values.

"I'd never smash my guitar, I'd feel terrible if I did, I love my guitar," Marr said."

I had to make a playlist of happy music I have so I can listen to it while panic-attacking. I don't have much happy music.

Traffic - Hole in My Shoe
Traffic - All Around the Mulberry Bush
Toy Dolls - Nellie the Elephant
Allman Brothers - Revival
Electric Light Orchestra - Mr. Blue Sky

Yeah, I'm more classic rock than indie...

I think it's hilarious how they have completely turned around the original idea of Riot Grrrl and still claim it's anything even remotely like it at all. There ain't much left in cuddlecore of the empowering women/feminism by showing they can rock just as hard as the guys if the girls are dressing up to raise the innocent-and-helpless-factor.

Cute does not necessarily equate to innocent and helpless, and I think anytime a group of people say "Fuck you, we're going to do what we want" it is de facto empowering.  Those bands didn't feel pressured to be cute, they wanted to be cute, and were saying "Fuck you, being cute is fun".  Also, those bands usually didn't have "cute" or "innocent" lyrics (though sometimes they did, sure).  But a lot of the lyrics are as vulgar or confrontational as most stuff in riot grrrl.

It's even more complex because a lot of bands that got lumped in as riot grrrl were pretty damn cute in how they dressed and presented themselves - I mean come on, Bratmobile.

I don't think that any band woke up and decided to call themselves cuddlecore, nor do I tihnk that a band has to be "controversial" to be empowering, and am not sure why you're drawing that line.

Are we debating whether cuddlecore is fun happy music before we debate whether it is a legit genre, or has that already been decided?

"A punk-influenced variant of indie pop, prominent in the mid-1990s, was dubbed "cuddlecore". Led by bands such as cub, Bunnygrunt and Maow, cuddlecore was marked by harmony vocals and pop melodies atop a punk-style musical backing. Cuddlecore bands were usually, although not always, all-female and essentially represented a more pop-oriented variation on the then-current riot grrrl scene."
