I picked up this one based on a pretty reliable trademark of quality, the spinART Records logo. The bargain price didn't hurt either. Bearing an undeniably selfish moniker, Me evidently called Bristol, England home. You can imagine what a Google-induced nightmare awaits you when looking up this five piece, but I digress. On top of that, they aren't the most convenient to typecast either. The A-side, "Here Comes Everybody" is awash with subtle neo-psych overtones, mildly akin to the Boo Radleys, and even less so the Lilys and Elephant 6 conundrums Olivia Tremor Control. To my ears the second flip-side, "Lucy" is the real deal, which deliberately or not finds Me melding C86 Britpop to the harmony laced aesthetic of old school power pop champs the Rubinoos. My cup runneth over...at least for a good three minutes anyway. Several more Me singles and full lengths are available.
