The debut album from Elizabeth and the Catapult is well worth a listen: laid-back harmonies accompany their adorable aesthetic. Just take a peek at the video for the title track 'Taller Children'. The songs are complex and appealing and their upbeat, flirtatious sound belies the cleverness and depth of the lyrics.

One of my favorites is the snappy, infectious, 'Momma's Boy': 'If you want a girl to be your mother/Go find another, go find another one.' Right on, Elizabeth! I also can't get enough of 'The Hang Up,' a perfect confection of a summer break-up song. 'Out with the girls on First Avenue/Drinking away our imaginary blues/I'd rather be anywhere, anyway, than to give up another day/Putting up with you.'
