The Weepies - Be My Thrill

New Music Tuesday is back with a bit of an off the wall band. Now, you might be led to believe that it's a slow music release day, but it really isn't. Heart, Disturbed and the Goo Goo Dolls are released new stuff this morning, but none of them wanted their samples released on Amazon. So - that drops me down to the Weepies. Not sure about ya'll out there in reader land, but I've never heard of this band before. They have that indie pop/rock sound, similar to hmmm, maybe an early Sheryl Crow? This is the fifth studio album recording by them, and they are signed to the 'Nettwerk' label. Sarah McLachlan probably being the biggest name to grace that particular label. iTunes releases a couple of these tracks in anticipation of the release, and they've gotten generally positive reviews. All in all, this album isn't all that bad. It's got a pretty fun feel to it, doesn't seem to take itself too seriously. Lyrically it's not going to haunt your dreams, but it's something you could tap your toes to on a Tuesday. Hey! You're in luck! It's Tuesday and you want to tap your toes! So check this out today.

3 out of 5 stars


  1. This reminds me of Ingrid Michaelson.

    My favorite Nettwerk band = Gob. They ended up getting signed to Arista and then pretty quickly fell off the face of the planet. "The World According to Gob" is still a treat to listen to though.

  2. That's a pretty solid comparison. Do you enjoy Ingrid?

    I've heard of Gob, only because of Arrested Development, but never actually listened to anything by them. I'll have to check it out.
