Sprites...

Another highly interesting band I came across the other day was US indie poppers Sprites. The band was formed in 2002 by Jason Korzen and his wife Amy, following the split up of his former band Barcelona (never heard of them, but probably should have). With an ever changing line-up (the Korzen's aside), the band has since released two albums and an E.P. According to the band's web page, Sprites love MP3's and (even better) to share them, so 5 great ones can be found there for free. The band has toured with The Lucksmiths, which probably is one of the first bands you think of, when you listen to Sprites...
+ George Romero
+ Bionic Hands
+ I Go Crazy

they did a cover of Flesh for Lulu's 'i go crazy'. that's an 80's band if you're not familiar w/ the song. check out excellentonline.com and you can download 2 compilations for free. while barcelona did a cover of men w/out hats' 'pop goes the world', another 80's song. the 2 compilations are titled flirt and intertwined. featuring songs from the shermans, the positions, paula kelley(ex-drop nineteens)mark gardner(ex ride)brave captain(x-boo radleys)cinerama,velocity girl and many more.
