Also most taken with this Nico Teen demo CD 'Two Trick Ponny' on AK Duck. It's a demo from last year full of dreamy, minimal DIY electro tinged pop from the mind of a talented lass indeed. I love the way the songs are unmastered, the wistful yet playful nature of these gentle tunes. There's spots that will appeal to fans of Stereolab & Broadcast but it's much more rudimentary & charming than a simple comparison to established artists could muster. One track is just her voice, pure & unadultered, over a brooding old organ line. Other spots on this 7 tracker remind me of Luscious Jackson in the sassy vocals, but stretched loosely over some dinky musical sketches, very lo-fi & proud. Every hook & chord change does something marvelous in it's simplicity and leaves you begging for a little more. Good stuff from this eclectic Israeli imprint!
