Seattle-based indie pop trio Tullycraft formed in 1994 from the ashes of Crayon, reuniting singer/bassist Sean Tollefson with drummer Jeff Fell; completing the lineup with ex-Wimp Factor 14 guitarist Gary Miklusek, the group debuted in 1995 with the Harriet label single "True Blue," subsequently notching an underground classic with "Pop Songs Your New Boyfriend Is Too Stupid to Know About," their contribution to Harriet's The Long Secret compilation. Following the Cher Doll 7" "Bailey Park," Tullycraft issued their first full-length effort, Old Traditions, New Standards, in 1996; assorted singles, compilation tracks, and split releases with bands like Bunnygrunt and Rizzo followed prior to the 1998 release of the trio's second album, City of Subarus. After a period in 2001 when it looked like the band were through, Tollefson, Fell, and Chris Munford (who had joined the band in 1998) joined up with guitarist Harold Hollingsworth and hooked up with Magic Marker Records, who released the fine Beat, Surf, Fun album in 2002. After adding longtime collaborator Jenny Mears to the official lineup, the group recorded their best album yet, 2005's Disenchanted Hearts Unite. After releasing Every Scene Needs a Center (which featured new guitar player Cori Hale) in 2007, the band went on hiatus until 2013, when they returned with the Phil Ek-produced Lost in Light Rotation. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi
