Modcast #106: The Twerps

Melbourne group The Twerps released their self-titled debut late last year and took a special place on our stereo/in our hearts. Case in point, Tim from Cut Copy highlighted them in his Best of 2011 list. (Some extra trivia for the train-spotters/liner-note readers, that's not the only Cut Copy link, their bass player, Rick, worked at Alter design, the good folk who designed all the 'Zonoscope' artwork.)

They've just announced a bunch of dates across Australia (American friends stay tuned for news on this front), so make sure you catch them! They've also made a pretty sweet Modcast for your listening pleasure this week, check it out there's some real gold in there.
