Originally from Austin and now based out of Philadelphia, Literature make sparkling, speedy janglepop that is likely to appeal to fans of Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Felt or The Wedding Present. Or even members of those bands -- TPOBPAH put Literature's album, Arab Spring, on their Best of 2012 list. You can stream the whole thing below and its a free download via their Bandcamp. They also have a brand new 7" which you can also stream below (or download).

Literature have a few tour dates coming up, including one in NYC on January 25 at Cake Shop with Australian ex-pats Scott & Charlene's Wedding , Slow Warm Death and Cool Serbia. It's their first NYC show since moving to the East Coast and more info is here. All tour dates are listed below, along with the album and single streams.

Jan. 12th - Strange Brew // Allentown, PA
Jan. 13th - JR's // Philadelphia, PA
Jan. 25th - Cake Shop // NYC

Gee without a caption to that photo, you'd think Terre T is in the band, and not just taking a photo with them from the studio at WFMU.

You're right that is so misleading. Thanks for setting the records straight. I can't believe I almost thought Terre T was in the band. Crisis averted. But it was a close call.

This should have won song of the year, instead of fun.
