The Prettiots are pretty much the only indie pop duo consisting of just a ukulele player and bassist that you ever need to see. They’re signed to Rough Trade so you know they manage to rise above cutesy-pie shenanigans and ironic cover songs. They are clever; even the great Roy Smeck was clever — it comes with the instrument itself, the ukulele. But hallelujah, they are legitimately clever, which is so rare as anyone whoever tried to date a person who owns a They Might Be Giants record know. Also, they are signed to Rough Trade!
