I first heard The Weepies on the absolutely fantastic TV show Everwood (which I’m still upset that they cancelled) when it featured The World Spins Madly On. I’m not always that easily sold, but The Weepies do that amazing thing with acoustic music that makes it easy to hear true talent that doesn’t need to hide behind fancy instruments and production. Plus Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody is a huge fan, which automatically holds them a little higher in my esteem.
Deb Talan and Steve Tannen released Say I Am You in 2006, which features one of my favourite Weepies songs – Gotta Have You. They released Hideaway in 2008, and you can listen to the husband-wife duo on their MySpace page, which unfortunately doesn’t feature Orbiting from the newer album. Thankfully there’s iTunes.
