My dog (that’s her in the banner) got hit by a car today, which sucks. Fortunately, she’s fine, but it’s left me not inconsiderably saddened and, so searching my library for a track to cheer me up, I came up with this recent little gem from indie-pop band du jour This Is Ivy League. They seem to craft the most joyous little tunes out of jangly guitars, intertwining vocals and lyrics like “Don’t let the tiniest of complications bring you down my friend/Don’t let the slightest complications drive you mad“. And if they’re telling me not to worry, why should I?
