Square Root of Margaret
Square Root Of Margaret
thanks to a swift and insisting post by Matt from Ear Farm, i was hooked into the songs and sounds of Square Root Of Margaret enough to post on them myself.
so here we are with this delicious blend of pop and indie rock and absolute goodness. SROM comes to you with their winning image of weirdness and unassumingness, and with them it's easy to drop names like The Shins and Of Montreal, and i think they're perfectly reasonable comparisons. what can i say, it's good! who cares! fits in neatly with your tastes (because i know you got 'em) and pops like your afternoon indie snack. the perfect pickmeup.
::::this track will win you over, guaranteed:
