Ashleigh spends a lot of time on this site talking about literary pop. She has mentioned all sorts of bands that encompass the genre, both literally and figuratively. That brings me to California band, Princeton. They are releasing an EP that is lyrically focused on "the influential Bloomsbury intellectual collective that existed in London during the early 20th century." The appropriately titled Bloomsbury, contains "lyrical portraits of Leonard Woolf, Lytton Strachey, Virginia Woolf and John Maynard Keyne."

That is all well and good, but how does it sound? Besides being educational, the disc is comprised of breezy pop goodness that is perfect for a laid back summer day.

I think this band will prove better with more time under their belts. The fact that they claim to throw together Virginia Woolf-based lyrics with Jeff Lipton's mastering can lead to no wrong.
