Seapony, Hausu Profiled by Seattle Times

The Seattle Times' Andrew Matson (friend of Cairo, all-around smart guy) has a piece up today about Portland band Hausu and local twee-trio Seapony. Both bands will perform at Cairo with Craft Spells and Secret Colors this Friday, Jan. 21st (it will be Hausu's Seattle debut).

Seapony's version of twee has four-chord guitar progressions, catchy single-string hooks, breathy female singing and real-sounding drum machines.

"They've altered the twee canon so slightly, that they've made it new again," says Funkhouser of Seapony.
