Album Review

Like an earthier version of Sixpence None the Richer, the Weepies brew up a sound that's part Lilith Fair throwback, part coffeehouse folk, and part NPR-approved pop. Be My Thrill, the duo's third album, continues the same thread the Weepies have been spinning since their 2003 debut, with acoustic guitars and light boy/girl harmonies taking most of the spotlight. Deb Talan and Steve Tannen sing these songs like they're performing for their two-year-old son; their voices are soft and casual, their melodies whimsical, the arrangements tight and textured but rarely, if ever, overpowering. The song titles alone give away the album's cheery vibe — "I Was Made for Sunny Days," "Be My Thrill," "Be My Honeypie" — and even the titles that sound like sad ballads ("Hard to Please," "They're in Love, Where Am I?") are played with all the sunny cheer of a CW network TV soundtrack. There are drums here, but they share their time-keeping duties with tambourines, hand claps, and other light percussion; there are electric guitars, too, but they never take the spotlight. Instead, the focus is on homespun material, the sort of folk/pop fare that could be played on acoustic instruments around a campfire, and those who liked the Weepies' past albums will find more to enjoy here.

Joyful Music

Definitely different from their last album, Hideaway. Their joy at having their new child really shows through! Very refreshing, will brighten your day

this is what we NEED!!

We need more tunes like this!!!

"Be My Thrill" is, well... thrilling!

After taking a little break from the music business to focus on their family, The Weepies are back once again with their fourth studio album and I must say... this album is no disappointment. "Be My Thrill" has to be one of the best albums and one of my personal favorites of 2010. It has just the right blend of happy-go-lucky tunes to melancholy, somewhat sad (but relatable) tunes. I think what makes The Weepies so popular is that they write songs we can all relate to at some point or another in our life. Their simple yet sophisticated melodies strike a chord within all of us that just makes their songs impossible to deny (at least for me anyways). I look forward to following their career in the years to come and I wish them nothing but happiness just as they have given me happiness through their music. The Weepies rock and I strongly recommend this album.

Songs that stand out from "Be My Thrill" are:
Red Red Rose
I Was Made for Sunny Days*
Add My Effort
Be My Thrill
Be My Honeypie
Hope Tomorrow

*Fun Fact about their song "I Was Made for Sunny Days," Colbie Caillat did backing vocals for the song. I found that out a couple weeks after the song was released, ha.

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Singer/songwriters Deb Talan and Steve Tannen, both of whom had released solo material before banding together to form folk-pop duo the Weepies, first met at one of Tannen's shows in Cambridge, Massachusetts. At the time, Tannen was touring in support of his debut record, Big Señorita. Mutual admirers of each other's music, the two musicians started writing songs together, and soon the Weepies' whimsical, acoustic-based sound took shape. The pair released an independent album, 2003's Happiness, before...
