Label: Indiecater Release Date: Out Now Website: 'Spring' is the first chapter of four-part seasonal project 'A Year With The Very Most' (Bishop Allen's monthly-EP series ringing any bells?), and is the self-proclaimed "only indie-pop band from Boise, Idaho"'s ode to all things blooming, dewy and, well, Spring-like. Twee to the bone, 'Spring' left me with a milky, sickly-sweet sort of taste on the back of my tongue after listening to it for the first time, but on closer inspection I became endeared to its shamelessly poppy and charming qualities. Layered with 'ooh' and 'ahh' vocals a-plenty and tambourine-twinkling percussion, opener 'Today It Is Even Better', reminiscent of Brit bands The Magic Numbers and Camera Obscura, sets the EP off to a steady start. 'A Two Week, Springtime, 7th Grade "Romance"' is also a favourite, with its glimmering piano and cutesy whistling melody. Clocking in at barely fourteen minutes, 'Spring' is short and sweet, much like the season it borrowed its name from. Rating: 7/10
