Back on the Bike

Bicycles
Hey! One of my favorite purveyors of neo-bubblegum pop, Toronto's The Bicycles, are back with the follow-up to their 2006 debut, The Good, The Bad, and the Cuddly. Album Number Two is called Oh No It's Love which rockets though 19 tracks in a mere 37 minutes, leaving no room for anything but the hooks.

While The Bicycles don't have an American distributor, you can buy Oh No It's Love digitally in DRM-free MP3s via Emusic and  Zunior. Hopefully they'll dip into North America soon. They are really fun live. I should also say that Oh No It's Love is a contender for my favorite album art of the year, a nice in-camera shot (created in an afternoon with seven bags of white balloons, copper tubing and chicken wire) that is equally cute and amazing.

  1. as of this moment, that's the best album cover I think I've ever seen!

  2. FYI, both Bicycles albums are available as DRM-free downloads at eMusic.com.
    I'll be downloading one tonight! Thanks Bill.

  3. Yeah I burn through the monthly 75 tracks pretty easily. I have about 30 albums listed in case I get down to the final days and I still have a handful left to use. But none go to waste. I recenly upgraded to the 75 per month level and have not been disappointed. I just got some early Nerves stuff that came available this week. This was Peter Case's first band. I also note that the early John Foxx stuff is now available. Actually, his whole catalogue may be there now. He was a member of Ultravox! from 1975 to 1979.
