Pree - Lemon Tree - FollyQuirky is something hard to pull off and even harder to maintain.  Do it right and you'll be endeared my many, do it wrong and you'll get nothing but mocking scorn. You have to be genuinely quirky too, not designed to be quirky by some PR dude, or made in a quirky lab by quirky scientists.  No, it has to come natural.  Even if you have the right amount of natural quirkiness you can quickly overstay your welcome. As a species we can only take quirkiness in small doses. Quirkiness is like cumin in that way.  A little goes a long way.  But just the right amount and you're golden.

Pree is quirky in all the right ways. May Tabol's vocals have that Regina Spektor, pixie with a mission quality to it that makes guys (and girls alike) get all googly eyed.  The music is light and harmonious and full of adventure.  "Lemon Tree"  starts with a lovely piano riff that lays the musical foundation and is then filled out with layered vocals, bells, horns and a jingling jangly sensation that's simply glorious.  Its a lonely dog song that follows you around everywhere, lays in your lap when you sit and licks your face until nothing bad can happen to you ever.  Its full of sparkly quirkiness that can't fail to make your day a little better.
