.... the hell?
« on: 03 Mar 2006, 16:19 »

I was messing around on last.fm (like the good little indie fangirl I am) and I found something interesting and yet disturbing.

I was on Belle and Sebastian's page and I was looking at the user tags that people have apparently used to describe them, and I came across one that was called "Twee."

Twee?

What the hell is "twee"?

It might be some really cool label that people have been using for years and years that I am just hearing about and am sounding like a total moron right now, but seriously... Twee?

What is twee?

Does anyone know?

Is this a new thing?

What?


What is going on?

  Yeah, those albums she's put out are brimming with mad lyrical SKILLZ, and she's totally hot, so who ever cares if her music is good or not?  Seriously, have you ever heard a better piece of music than that first album of hers (I want to continue the joking, but I honestly forget the name of that album, or any of her albums)?

  Anyway, twee is definately a good description of their sound.  And on the topic, anyone have any other good twee recommendations?
