Howard C Fantastic stuff. Both the offerings on Bandcamp are collections of well crafted catchy riff-laden songs that get better on each listen. I only wish I was stateside and could catch them live. Tour the UK!!! Favorite track: Peach.

steveinsocal "..."Nice Try" is as good a collection of top-notch and crazily addictive indie-pop songs that has been released this year... Every song resplendent with knock-out hooks that compete to outdo one another and which sound both reassuringly familiar yet always fresh..."

Jabod Crackingly good punk-pop that proves the tag "garage" doesn't mean amateurish and "energetic" doesn't mean discordant. In fact I was mesmerised when I first heard Leggy, whose songs are so clever, cool and catchy that I can't stop myself playing them over and over. Favorite track: Grrrls Like Us.

Peach 03:59
I had a boyfriend and when we kissed it was sweet, like eating a peach I met another, I couldn’t eat couldn’t sleep, why did Cupid shoot me? Dreamt of a new lover, we’d flirt until I relent, I’m teaching him French Cried to my mother that I felt sick from my sins and I have to repent But all I can think about is that boy’s mouth Yes, all I can think about is that boy’s mouth I had a boyfriend and when we kissed it was sweet, like eating a peach I met another, I couldn’t eat couldn’t sleep, why did Cupid shoot me? Dear John, I’m sorry, it wasn’t part of my plan, I hope you can understand I hope you’re happy, you with your new girlfriend, me with my new man All I can think about is that boy’s mouth Yeah i can think about is that boy’s mouth I saw his handsome face, I never should’ve looked in his eyes His leg once brushed my leg, I let him rest his gaze on my thighs All I can think about is that boy’s mouth Yeah all i can think about is that boy’s mouth

There are plenty of fish in the sea But girls like us don’t grow on trees We sip peach champagne til we ain’t that shy u’ve got a $20 in yr pocket and mischief in yr eyes :) Cheap champagne til we ain’t that shy I’ve got a clover in my locket and cherries in my Sprite There are plenty of fish in the sea But girls like us don’t grow on trees I ain’t a prophet but we gotta keep our eyes on the prize My magic 8 ball said that things are gonna turn out alright The future’s shining like a jar of fucking fireflies Don’t waste another minute thinking bout that girl with your guy There are plenty of fish in the sea But girls like us don’t grow on trees

Adonis 02:13
Apollo I think, or Adonis You make me nervous oh boy I’ll be honest` Cause your slang’s got the rhythm of a sonnet and the stars they are swimming past like comets Adonis I think or Apollo knows a path that I think I might follow has a plan that is sweet but its hollow he’s a dear but he’s gone by tomorrow Just as Paris chose Aphrodite I think this may end very very poorly but come here babe, you know I think you're charming and our 20s aren't for playing safe Apollo I think, or Adonis You make me nervous oh boy I’ll be honest` Cause your slang’s got the rhythm of a sonnet and the stars they are swimming past like comets

A Reverie 02:32
Dancing like a little flower, I die and I'm tryna fly south for the summer, I try Passing notes, secret codes Father Son and Holy Ghost Passing notes, secret codes Father Son and Holy Ghost Dancing like the stars on your birthday, I shine get close and then strive to be perfect, you know why Passing notes, secret codes Father Son and Holy Ghost Passing notes, secret codes Father Son and Holy Ghost

You wanted to go on a walk outside but I was wearing high heeled shoes So I left them behind. You made me smile when you kissed my hand lightly, like a prince or a king. We played pretend all day that day. I'm never coming home, I really lost my way. I'm never coming home, I really lost my way. They say you are a bad, bad seed But you're not bad for me I blush and call your name 'Cause you know that I can't refuse Honey, it's the truth I love the seedy things you say I'm never coming home, I really lost my way. I'm never coming home, I really lost my way.

July 02:27
Rubbing sunscreen on my shoulders in May I'm like a rabbit, by August I am bolder Plucking petals off of blossoms in May I made a promise, by August I'd forgotten Stagnant air making me restless, completely rosy-cheeked and breathless There are apple pies cooling in the window Do simple sights make your heart-rate fly? Like my bare thighs in July? Where did your gf go? Caught between the devil & the deep blue sea When you found me a 4 leaf clover your hair was glowing golden and yr skin was bronze just like I imagine Paris when he first met Helen, so how can this be wrong?? Stagnant air making me restless, completely rosy-cheeked and breathless There are apple pies cooling in the window Do simple sights make your heart-rate fly? Like my bare thighs in July? Where did your gf go? Caught between the devil & the deep blue sea
