the Velveteens

You know those dreamy beach parties you see in movies, but never get invited to? The kind with a clambake, a bonfire, and ladies in capri pants dancing wildly, 60s-style? Well, that's exactly the way the band the Velveteens sound: young and kitten-soft, with sweet scratchy vocals and bright jangly guitar. [...] By the way, the band was first formed in 2008 by high school friends Kiera Coonan and Jonny Holupchinski -- Jonny on bass and Kiera on the most rockin' instrument of all -- a mic'd typewriter. After a few lineup changes, Jillian Schroeder took over bass duties, Jonny moved to guitar, and Kiera gave up the typewriter for a drum set and vocal mic. [City Pages, 2012]
