Blessed with three genius-level singer/songwriters, Glasgow’s Teenage Fanclub has been churning out chiming, harmony-laden power pop for almost twenty years.  Spin magazine memorably named TC’s 1991 sophomore album, Bandwagonesque, their album of the year – beating out Nirvana’s Nevermind. The magazine caught a lot of flack for that decision, but – whisper it – they were right.  When you need music that will cheer you up without being relentlessly twee and shmaltzy, the Fanclub is one of the best places to go.

The first is song is called “I Need Direction,” and comes from their 2000 album, Howdy! The second song comes from their 1997 album, Songs from Northern Britain, and it’s called “Ain’t That Enough.”
