A 15-song cycle that is neither quite twee nor blues, but something in between. Recorded in one batch over a long weekend with a small crew, this record is a focused artistic statement full of songs that are easy to play and fun to sing.

- Twee Blues by Colin Clary

Here's my second offering from Weepop this week - Colin Clary's 'Twee Blues'. Much like the other one I had to write about, this collection isn't as cloyingly twee as I'd feared (particularly since the word even features in the title) but instead is a collection of simple sentimental songs, deliberately written to be easy and fun to play.
It's a beautifully packaged LP, too, with an elegant sheaf of lyric cards which come complete with chord progressions in case you want to have a stab at playing the songs yourself. There are elements of both the twee and the blues but it's really just simple, thoughtful songwriting with a charming delivery, uncluttered arrangements and Clary's breathy and unobtrusive vocals hanging likeably over the top. Thoroughly pleasant.
