When Sub Pop sends us something and says, "This is indeed very good," we say, "Yes, we choose to believe you, Sub Pop. Thank you." Just in our inbox is a YouTube from Padova, Italy's Jennifer Gentle who released the psych-pop jewel Valende on Sub Pop in 2005. Marco and Alessio (What's your name? Dave or something?) have added some more dudes to the band since we last saw them and have been steadily knocking out live small-run freakadelica records the last couple years. The video is new song "Take My Hand" from their show in Padova last Sunday, and we have to say it has us geeked on the forthcoming LP, on Italians, and on jangly, kooky rock nuggets that make us want to hug the world, in general. They also have several new jams and more video wildness right here.
