So I was just over at WeePOP!'s myspace checking up on things, and to my delight they had just posted a song from a brand new EP by Megamoog. I hadn't heard Megamoog before, but they're two girls from San Francisco who make some lovely pop using just an 80's casiotone, a drumkit, and some girl vocals. The lyrics are simple and heartfelt, without being overly sentimental. And they're sung in a such a nice, hushed voice. It's kind of like a twee Au Revior Simone.

Bio

Megamoog has been crafting pop songs in her bedroom since her late teens. As a teenager, she spent her summers at the local thrift store scoping out the electronics section for Casio keyboards. Her intentions were not to become a musician, but to be collector (as her brother was). Soon after her first purchases, she discovered how much she enjoyed the sounds of these secondhand instruments. Short pop songs followed. Years later, Megamoog found herself on the East Coast, playing a few shows in New York and Boston. She has had the great opportunity of playing with bands such as Lullatone, Pipas, Pants Yell!, Suburban Kids with Biblical Names, YellowFever, The Besties, and Ponies in the Surf.

Currently, she has teamed up with her friend Phoebe who plays drums. They are working on releasing a 7" with Hugpatch Records.
