Music: On Again, Off Again

I'm a sucker for dream-pop, and Lemolo is dream-pop all the way - jangly guitar, simple lyrics, and unhurried presentation. The band's first album, "The Kaleidoscope," is both cool enough for a coffee shop and mellow enough for a massage parlor:

Lemolo's already getting some exposure in the Seattle music scene; their single "On Again, Off Again" is a good example of why they're attracting attention. The song feels constructed and technical, the result of dozens or hundreds of passes to get every element just so. Think Cocteau Twins, but replace meandering valleys with percussive force.
