I've tried to write this 900 times but I always got tired or realized I had other things I had to do. How sad. Fortunately, today we had a snow day! Snow days aren't exactly cute since snow means cold and horribleness. I guess lots of people enjoy snow and so for them I bet it's cute. Snow days are sort of wonderful because they mean I can sleep in and write blog posts. Plus, the Chicago Public Schools have made me into this strange person who thinks snow days are like little gems. It's almost like even from miles away Chicago only let me have this snow day because they're all getting Casimir Pulaski Day.
ANYWAY, Slow Club are definitely one of the cutest bands out there. I think there's usually something incredibly charming about boy-girl bands and Slow Club's got that charm. They sing songs that sound incredibly sweet like summer birthdays full of cake, balloons, and lemonade ("Me and You", "Summer Shakedown", "Because We're Dead"). They also sing songs that I think I'd like to fall asleep to in my pink house ("Trick Question") or sadder songs that make me think of swingsets and cuddling ("Biology Hearts", "Sunday", "Apples and Pairs"). Last year they released a Christmas single titled "Christmas TV" and it's probably my favorite song of theirs. If you like falling asleep, birthdays, and baby animals you'll probably love them too.
