Uncle Wiggly – Jump Back, Baby
Acquired: Love Garden Shotgun Room, Used, 2007
I don't know how this ended up in the shotgun room, given that it's on the excellent Teen Beat records, whose artists all have names beginning with U and V, as you will see in the next run of records. This is a fucking excellent jangle-pop record with Built to Spill guitars and that perfect 90s alt-rock sound. On top of that there's a heavy kiwi-pop sound a la Flying Nun Records and a little Superchunk-esque bratty straight up indie rock thrown in. All the songs are pretty short, which pleases me and they do a good job at keeping things interesting over 16 songs.
Here's a video for "Rat's Rabbits" in glorious 90s video!
