Cheer up, Maria Minerva! BrooklynVegan says your new album is titled Will Happiness Find Me?, and I’m here to say that of course happiness will find you! There’re loads of reasons to grin: Nectarines! Pie! Water slides! Brunch! Garden gnomes! The Internet Cat Video Film Festival!

Not to mention last year’s LP, Cabaret Cixous (TMT Review)! And your Sacred & Profane Love EP! And your tape, Tallinn At Dawn! And your Noble Savage 12-inch! Damn! You sure have been busy! And we’re glad, because we like your style of synth-pop!

Your album comes out in less than a month! August 1 on Not Not Fun! And c’mon, you’ve also got a collaboration with LA Vampires called The Integration coming out in October! And you’re touring! Wow!!!
