Dansette Dansette

Tender Trap

Helmed by Talulah Gosh and Heavenly alums Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey, Tender Trap combine the harmonies, oohs, ahs and sha-la-las of classic girl-pop with the stripped down beats and dirty guitars of the Shop Assistants and The Vaselines. Revitalized by the addition of key new members, Dansette Dansette is a smashing and very welcome return for some of indie-pop's most influential players.

Doomed Forever

Procedure Club

Noisy lo-fi pop with the emphasis on NOISE from this Connecticut duo, wherein carefully constructed tunes are given a fierce work-over by layers of guitar fuzz and synth scree. An amazing album packed with excellent songs that strike just the right balance between the songs and the noise, between structure and chaos.

Angelic Swells

Neverever

Brilliant power-pop that takes in 50s rock 'n roll, 60s girl-group sounds, the 70s glam heyday of Slade and Suzi Quatro and 80s power-pop on its way to creating a bang-up-to-date idea of what pop should sound like in 2010. Timeless tunes, fuzzy riffs, pounding rhythms drive these tales of teenage love and lust. Includes "Young & Dumb," "Coconut Shampoo" and "Teardrop Tattoo."

Black Tambourine

Black Tambourine

Crucial compilation from one of the first Slumberland bands. A feedback-enshrouded collision of noise and pop that owed a lot to The Jesus & Mary Chain, Shop Assistants, Galaxie 500 and 14 Iced Bears, but of course is marked as totally unique by their dark, haunting tunes and Pam's lovely vocals. This reissue includes new liner notes, new art, never before seen band photos, and SIX unreleased songs, including four new recordings made in the Summer of 2009.

Kill Twee Pop!

Sarandon

Kill Twee Pop! 10" vinyl/CD

Taking their cues from the "other" side of C86, Sarandon pick up where bands like Big Flame, The Wolfhounds and Bogshed left off. Their tense, abrasive sound cross-breeds pop with the urgency and noise-loving aesthetic of punk. The results are catchy, bristly and totally distinctive.

The Last Match

The Aislers Set

Where The Aislers' debut Terrible Things Happen's synthesis of 60s mod-pop, 70s punk and 80s/90s indie flavors provided an end-of-the-century summation of where pop had been and where it was heading, 2000's The Last Match upped the ante even farther. More ambitious in conception, The Last Match expanded the band's sound into more orchestral areas. While the songs are still driving and catchy as a fish hook, the arrangements are far more sophisticated. It's a must-listen album, one that fueled fond memories, sparked love affairs, set off spontaneous dance parties, and reminded us all of the power of song-craft and melodies and POP. 2014 reissues available now!
