Track of The Week: The Lovely Eggs - Don't Look At Me (I Don't Like It)

There's some excellent stuff cropping up at the moment in indiepop-dom. The Go! Team's 'Buy Nothing Day' sounds very much like it could be one of the best things of all time. But this week's Track of the Week can be nothing but The Lovely Eggs.

Their classic 'Have You Ever Heard A Digital Accordion?' earned itself a TotW spot last year after after I managed to catch them doing a gig at the now-closed-down Stockroom in Sheffield. They're also really nice and very very deserving of lots more press.

'Don't Look At Me (I Don't Like It)'
is the first taster from what should be their second full length album (their d├ębut If You Were Fruit was released on Cherryade Records in 2009) and perfectly encapsulates the scrappy craziness of the pair.

And scrappy is the key word. The video seems to have been recorded for the price of a sausage roll and the sound's not so much polished from their debut as it is stuck together with gaffer tape. As well, 'Don't Look At Me' is lyrically pure bonkers and sonically the perfect example of loud pop.

It's also very fun. Try and watch this video without smiling. I bet you can't do it.
