smalltalker (Burlington, Vermont)
The name smalltalker refers in part to the shmooze, the how's-the-weather, the "welp...", aspect to the music. It's an afternoon on the beach under a palm tree with a beautiful woman that doesn't really like you that much but she's trying to get back at her ex and you don't really mind cause you don't really like her that much either.
