It’s a stylin’ clear-vinyl 7″ of cute music, mostly done by girls. Winnipeg’s b’ehl play straight-up, breathy, wistful pop songs; Clag, who hail from Melbourne, Australia, are weirder and funnier. “Fresh,” the first tune on their side, has a sort of Sesame Street un-funk thing going, with noodley Casiotone bleeps floating behind the voice of singer Bek, who sounds like she’s about 12. Clag’s loopy cartoon-rock has also appeared on the second and third compilations put out by Aussie indie label Spill.
