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.
