Tasty Twee: Sloppy Joe’s “Portrait”

Sloppy Joe’s “Portrait” doesn’t require much dissection. It’s pretty straightforward indie-pop with a bit of a Smith’s swagger to it courtesy of the guitars. Plus its loaded up with trumpet. Just because “Portrait” carries all the hallmarks of twee past, though, doesn’t mean it’s bad. Sloppy Joe clearly studied up on how to create great indie-pop, because “Portrait” is just that. Just gotta keep it simple sometimes.
