"Select Buds" - named thus, I'm guessing, because it features 5 tracks culled from Teenage Moods' "Rosebuds" tape - is such an unpretentious, fun (without ever approaching wacky) listen that it will come in handy for lifting the spirits during the damp, grey gloom of January. Teenage Moods call Minneapolis, USA home but their sound fits in well with a lot of the gentler guitar pop that has emanated from Australia over the last half decade. "Get It Right", the 12" e.p.'s closing track and the one that Not Unlovedcraves the most, is as sprightly as your favourite Twerps track and just as sweet and features a cool, wobbly jelly guitar effect. Teenage Moods are another great find by Madrid's loveliest label, Tenorio Cotobade.
