WeePOP! just released their newest 3" CDR, and as expected it's super cute in every way. This time around it's We Disappear by the Transmittens. The Kansas duo combine what could only be described as jangly "twee" and synth-pop to create something special. For those of you who want an imaginary reference picture, think Pipas meets the Besties and Smittens with less guitars and more glitter. Clocking in at about 20 minutes, the packaging isn't the only thing that's super tiny and super cute. Just give the opening track "Marfa Texas" a listen if you don't believe me. The wonderful thing about the 10 tracks contained on this tiny disc is the variety. Some are super-mixed-down-fuzzy-fun, some are super summer-y, some are good ol' pop, and some cover the space in between, but all of them possess wryly written lyrics that will lodge in your mind if the keyboards, handclaps and guitars fail to first. Oh, and did I mention that it's limited to 160 copies?
