i hopped an aeroplane to san francisco, CA to visit taylor [09 october 2009] for a week. in berkeley on 15 october 2009 we met up with ryan & lorelie marquez [congratulations on the recent nuptuals!] of the always brilliant indie pop duo golden teardrops.
you may recognise ryan & lorelie from the various other bands that they're involved in : apple orchard, the haircuts, spring boutique, under shooting stars, sodajerk, etc. they are both very active members of the filipino indie pop scene.
we caught up with each other over chai tea/coffee & [later on, across the street] soft tacos. taylor tried out her newly purchased wig [from the halloween store] as we discussed web design [lorelie is designing our new site] & a few new jealous sea songs. [ryan & lorelie are  two lucky souls that have heard what taylor & i have been working on lately. they've all been under wraps.] both of them were quite delighted with the results!
we really like these kids; they're great people who make great music. if you haven't heard them yet--stop what you're doing & take a listen!
