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).
