The Lolligags - "Wired Up"
You know, I'm the first to claim outright that electro-pop is not my thing. Then I become obsessed with recent Of Montreal for months at a time and wonder whether I'm just a liar. Now another Athens band, The Lolligags, has forced me to revisit old assumptions. Their current EP on Happy Happy Birthday To Me (order here for $5) is just four tracks long, but I find myself wanting to play it repeatedly. Particularly in my favor lately is lead track "Wired Up" -- far too few songs have lyrics about obsession, insomnia, and throwing coffee mugs. Yes, please.
