Thankfully not a return to the days of the little tykes and their tweeny takes on the hits of the day. More a delicious combo from San Francisco with a chanteuse spilling dreamy vocals the likes we haven’t heard for aeons. Behind her is a rhythm section that stops short of blistering eardrums even though you know they want to. ‘Precious’ is the title track from their debut EP and it lives up to its billing with aplomb. This is a delicate pop production that won’t blow you away but may give you the sort of tingles normally associated with a heightened sense of happiness. With an album at an advanced stage of production, upcoming support slots to Midlake and a SXSW appearance on the way 2007 could be a really busy year for Minipop. Catch them before they go minor to major. KD
