When we first posted the absolutely adorable “Queen Of The Lot” video by The Spring Standards in February, we were completely smitten. Since then, the east coast trio have released a double-disc record, yellow//gold.

Yellow pays homage to the trio’s shared childhood back when they started playing folk music together as teenagers, while Gold “is is a declaration of young life in a big city, bursting with energy.”

Above, enjoy the video for the mellow “Only Skin,” a song that tells the story of the sadness that comes with “change and greatening distance.”

Stream the entire album on AOL.

Totally cute is this “Queen Of The Lot” video by The Spring Standards. The last time you probably saw puppets get down like this was in The Muppets. And even still, they may have not been quite as funky. The song itself is quite fantastic as well – makes us want to tumble down a grassy hill in carefree glee.
