[The Chalets]
The Chalets are yet another addition to my set of blogger's remorse posts - ya know, wanting to post on a group past hype simply because I didn't have a blog back then. Usually remorse is fed by some well-timed news from the band in mind, but it was only so long before I got tired of waiting for something new from the Chalets' end. The Chalets are a quintet from Dublin that first formed under drunken cognitive - before any of the members even touched an instrument - or so the story goes. So what are the usual results of drunken, talented, hormonally-active people? Fraternal bands of course! And the Chalets are no exception. Composed of two gals and three guys, the Chalets harmonize and vocalize in a battle of the sexes fashion with the guys sounding off only to be followed by the higher pitches of the ladies. Add in some electric beats coupled by a traditional rock demeanor and you have the Chalets. Simple, catchy, astoundingly simple pop rock tunage. Ready your week with the sounds of the Chalets...

Various songs from The Chalets (all songs are right click - save as):

I'm pretty sure that these frames you do for your posts is one of the most original things I've seen in the blogosphere.
