I've got SO MUCH LERVE for local dream team Tomten. Seriously! And NOW, after spending all morning listening to their new single, "Pipe Dream Boy," I think I might LERVE 'EM even MORE! See, "Pipe Dream Boy" sounds like Tomten are pushing even MORE mindfully towards slightly-delic '60s pop sounds. Gah, just dig the song's hazy atmosphere... suh-WOON! Their new album, The Farewell Party, is due out August 19 on Versicolor Records; I can't wait!

Oh, also, Tomten are playing this coming Thursday night with Papercuts and EDJ of the Fruit Bats the Tractor Tavern.
