I'll Be Your





This track by The Tallest Tree is essentially the auditory equivalent of gentrification -- it's twee, tame, whimsical. It's white people paying $6 for toast with homemade jam. It's 34-year old women wearing bangs and vintage cardigans, playing kazoos, riding bikes, pretending to be six. It's incredibly mild. But it's sweet, and it sums up the husband-wife team comprising the band:

We met a couple years ago when Armando's band, The Oats, was playing in Canada. 
And that's when Armando fell in love with Dawn.
Every time Dawn came to visit Mexico City, we would write a new song.
Now Dawn and Armando are married.
