Guggenehim Grotto: Melodic Haunting

The duo from the same Dublin scene that spawned Damien Rice and Lisa Hannigan return with their second record, and WTMD's new CD of the Week, Happy the Man.

It's melancholy and relationship wit dressed up in a sunny, New Romantic keyboard bounce- not the kind of concoction you'd expect.

Mick Lynch and Kevin May first got my attention around three years ago with the song "Told You So."

Take a look at The Guggenheim Grotto's imaginative animated video for "Her Beautiful Ideas." How long do you think it took to make it?
