hey it's finally yay

with the release of the new album from The Like Young, i knew i was going to want to eventually post a Wolfie track. the twee pop of joe and amanda's old band is quite a contrast to some of the gloomier material on their new album. Awful Mess Mystery, the group's '98 debut, has itself been a perfect contrast to my hectic, exhaustive and generally uncheerful work week. it was quite a pivitol album in my college radio days. i went to see Braid and after the show the band gave me aseveral albums, one which was Wolfies. i played it alot on my show and soon after was pretty much playing twee pop all the time.

Great post. I went to school in Champaign when Wolfie was still just a local band and Braid and Sarge were the kings of the land. Their first green 7" is awesome. I'll have to post some tracks from it soon.
