The Punks Are Writing Love Songs by Tullycraft from the 2007 album Every Scene Needs a Center on Magic Marker.
Tullycraft was intuitive enough and fortunate enough to be a part of the first wave of indie-pop bands in the US. Rather than fade away as an indie relic or lose relevance as the indie market gains popularity, this Olympia, WA startup has persevered, making their good-guy punk-pop sound just as fresh and exciting as it did more than a decade ago. To cap off weeks of song highlights and hype here on KEXP, Tullycraft performed a CD release show last night at the Crocodile along with Math and Physics Club and Patience Please. Like a more profitable album leak, the evening gave fans a shot at the album before it officially goes on sale this Tuesday, 10/23.
