The oohs have it

Sometimes a tambourine and a pretty voice repeatedly singing 'ooh' is more than enough:

To be fair, Seapony's "Nothing Left" (from the group's second album for Hardly Art, "Falling") has so  much more than that to recommend it.  There's the intro; played in a manner so redolent of Felt's Maurice Deebank.  There's the dreamy, unfussy guitar solo.  There's the brittle crispness of the recording.  I would probably have overlooked "Falling" if the astute duo behind Soft Power Records hadn't placed it so highly - number 6 - in their 2012 year end list.  I'm totally grateful to them for the reminder.
