Information: TOAE
Suggested first purchase: I Know Where You Live

I Know Where You Live (1996) -- Home recordings by teenager, some in Polish, a very short album with good little songs, including the highlights "Panoramic Lens" and "Watch Your Head." B

No, Not Like That (1996) -- Cover songs by Canadian bands (Adam West, The Inbreds, Rheostatics) and two popular American groups (R.E.M., They Might Be Giants), they're either done with built-in arpeggios from little keyboards or a guitar, and they're good in a charming homemade way. R.E.M.'s "Shaking Through" is especially pretty. B
