The debut album from Elizabeth and the Catapult is well worth a listen: laid-back harmonies accompany their adorable aesthetic. Just take a peek at the video for the title track 'Taller Children'. The songs are complex and appealing and their upbeat, flirtatious sound belies the cleverness and depth of the lyrics.Read more about Taller Children after the jump!One of my favorites is the snappy, infectious, 'Momma's Boy': 'If you want a girl to be your ...
