SF’s Loglady Records sure puts out some good records: Cassie Ramone, Legs, Permanent Collection, Part Time and soon a new EP from the Woolen Men entitled Rain Shapes, their second for the label.

The Portland band’s downplayed poppy style are a perfect match for Loglady, which tends to favor bands that put low-key yet atmospheric spins on really tuneful soft pop.

Despite the song’s dour title, “Rain” is jangly and upbeat and immediately catchy, a sophisticated update on twee with a bummed-out-but-not-really 90s vibe. Recommended for fans of bands like Clearance or anyone who frets that sophisticated non-cheesy guitar pop is a thing of the past.
