Timmy Sunshine & The Conductors

It's the kind of band name you'd come up with when you were about seven or eight, and some of their lyrics come from about that age, too: "I was born in a magic tree with dragons, oh my," Mr. Sunshine sings in "Magic Tree." But by "Wine, Wine, Wine" it's quite obvious that the Bellingham band isn't meant to be mom-approved. Sunshine & co. resemble the studied chamber pop playfulness and curious vocals of Andrew Bird and the meandering folk sensibilities of Neutral Milk Hotel, writing songs that seem to hide from and seek the freedom and glee of years past. With Corduroy, We Hate The Desert. MARY PAULINE DIAZ
