Two sweeties who put their feet in Lawrence, Kansas and starting filling it with their special brand of tinny-beated, moog-enhanced pocket pop. Danny and Jen don’t like to play live, but everyone else loves it.


The above lines are all you're gonna find about them in a quick search on the Internet.
Well, if you understand Portuguese there's an article here: amplificasound.blogspot.com.


Beautiful pop songs, good lyrics, all very lo-fi and at the same time well-finished, and twee. Yeah, Transmittens!

They've been releasing their wonderful music via the also wonderful WeePOP! recs from London.
This time they're here with us instead!

And if now you're waiting for moog and casio sounds from them, well, think twice!


This album is all guitars, acoustic and electric, yeah perfect jingle jangle guitars.
I mean, the effective/distinctive drum machine is still there, so are the beautiful delicate vocals, but you can't hear any keyboard at all!
And there's some live drumming as well! And by drumming I mean Moe Tucker style, just so you get the idea.
Think of Softies, Jesus and Mary Chain, Beat Happening and Magnetic Fields, you're half-way there.

O Bosque / Woodland proudly presents Snow Day, the new album by Transmittens.
Enjoy, color the sky!

Digital sales detailed reports

To sell the physical record we use bandcamp, friendly DIY distros/shops/stores and also OB/W stand on shows by artists of the roster. But we have only a few albums available as a physical record. We mostly trade digital.
For digital releases we work with either (or both) bandcamp or (and) Zimbalam.

Bandcamp and Zimbalam are not free, you have to pay for them to sell your album on their platforms and also iTunes, Amazon, emusic etc.

We don't pay anything to upload an album onto Bandcamp, but every time someone buys something from OB/W, Bandcamp charges us 15% per transaction, and also PayPal charges us 5% + $0.30, that's per transaction.

Every OB/W's release via Zimbalam costs us an up front fee of £29.99 for the distribution of your release and then an annual fee of £9.99.
If a release has enough sales to cover its annual fee then they charge me further 10% and I receive the remainder, but only up to six months after the sale period...

Below we have the royalty statements Zimbalam made available so far:

The Argyle Wishlist is a reverb-loving Indie Pop band based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The group began in 2004 as the solo project of Jesse Bell (former songwriter and guitarist of the Michigan garage-pop combo "The Keen") but after a dozen various releases has grown to a three piece including Zach Butler on bass and Tim Raymond on drums.


The band draws heavily on 60’s pop and British Invasion influences, along with strong elements of 90's Indie Pop, to create more modern, two minute gems.


O Bosque / Woodland proudly presents Quite Happy, Thank You, the new EP album by The Argyle Wishlist.
Enjoy, it's a wonderful record, really.
