The addictiveness of “Oh Mandy” is a well-documented phenomenon. I actually became quite the fan of these guys, and then a friend. They had another album in 2008 called “Moonwink” and an EP later… I had the pleasure of previewing their upcoming album “Shy Pursuit” and I think you (and anyone else) might be pleasantly surprised by the catchiness and greatness of some of the tunes. But seriously, Oh Mandy status catchiness.
I don’t know much about these guys except that they put out an album in 2005 that I’ve always liked OK and that this song was on it and that any time I so much as think about one sliver of the song’s existence I have to go listen to it and that it has rarely ever disappointed me. Also they made this video, “Shit People At SXSW Don’t Say,” which I thought would be really dumb and that I would just try to avoid, but then I had a moment of weakness and watched it and it actually made me laugh—like, actually “LOL”—and I will probably listen to their new record when it comes out, not that I have high hopes that it’ll live up to this song, but that’s alright.
