If Elliot Smith was a girl...

He'd probably sound like this:

"Oh Blah Wee" by Via Audio

Via Audio's 2010 album Animalore somehow seemed to get swept under the rug, but I've been jamming to it for months now. Produced by Jim Eno of Spoon, it's filled with tongue-in-cheek indie pop gems.

The album is half emo folk rock (a la "Oh Blah Wee" above), and half electro pop (see "Babies" below). I couldn't find a good video for "Babies," but I did find this bizarre video for their 2007 single "Presents." Gotta love low budget creativity...

If you've been digging this, be sure to check out the rest of their album. "Wanted" is another favorite. Something very Eisley about this song. What ever happened to that band?
