The Ampersands will remind you of the effortless genre-hopping of The Super Furry Animals, the stylish experimentation of XTC and the melodic imagination of the great 60s bands. That's a lot to ask from one track, but 'The Pigeon' accomplishes it all with considerable panache.
Review of The Pigeon
— Name, Title
HAPPY TO BE HERE
(honestly just a month or two in total when you count it all up, but scattered very sparsely over the course of nine years)
... in the making!
Will the prognosticator's dire prediction come true? Will the pigeon ever leave its town? Can one truly rage until they feel? Has the therapist who specializes in obscure references discovered the secret? What is happening outside of those four walls?
...In Happy to Be Here by The Ampersands!
THIS IS YOUR ADVENTURE TOO
Named one of Diffuser.fm's "top 10 of 2012" and featured on Hulu's Difficult People, there's no better time than now to "devour" (as the Philadelphia Daily News recommends) this classic Indie Pop gem.
A Garage Rock Classic!
The album that started it all!
The Ampersands' first full-length album (and the only one recorded before the departure of drummer Corinne Gonzalez) made its way into the history books when the song Winterspring was ranked #671 on Kiss Out The Jams' "top 1000 songs of the 2000s," (just ahead of Wussy's This Will Not End Well and Chamillionaire feat. Krayzie Bone's Ridin')

Sorry! But maybe you can, if you're from New England and never ever clean out your media collection?
