Song of the Day - November 6, 2006

The Envelopes are a French/Swedish band and their album Demon, which came out last year is an utter delight. Despite the medieval looking album art, Demon is not referring to some evil monster, but rather Demon is Swedish for demo. The album is apparently a collection of their demo tapes. They have been compared to the Pixies, Pavement, and Belle and Sebastian. Many of their songs have a wonderful poppish side to them. One of my favorites in the poppish vein is "Sister in Love," a terminally addictive song. However, my favorite track is "Isabelle and Leonard." The song is accompanied by acoustic guitar, a silly backing chorus, and a great progression from gentle acoustic introduction to a more rockin' presence. Click here to listen.
