How long has there been a musical genre called "twee pop"? I had heard "chamber pop" before, but not this. Not that I mind. If I could walk into a record store (after I won the lottery) and find a twee pop or chamber pop section, I would just sweep all the cds into a basket and take them home with me.

I am in the midst of Tea Revival. It is tremendously satisfying.

I am also stretched very thin and hope for so many things.

If I could have more money or more time, I do not know which I would take.

I have a massive papercut in an uncomfortable place on my hand. Thanks, Hammermill, you jackasses.

So what exactly is twee pop? I only know the pejorative meaning for "twee," so it's hard to imagine something positive associated with it, music-wise.

Believe it or not, Wikipedia has an article on Twee Pop: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Twee_pop

It is short, but it explains the origins, and provides a list of relevant bands.

I dunno! For a while, at least. I kind of think the term sounds pejorative but that's because I don't care much for most of the artists it's slapped onto. Except Belle & Sebastian somehow. Weird stuff huh?

Are they considered twee now? I thought they predated the term by a decade or two.

a.) I'm not sure I'd heard the tern 'twee pop' before this post, except maybe as the punchline to a dirty joke.

b.) SK is listed in the above Wikipedia article, so it *has* to be true.

c.) SK's cover of "Daydream Believer" may just be the finest song ever performed. Even surpassing Handel's Messiah.
