Expert Alterations EP

Expert Alterations

Baltimore’s premier indiepop trio Expert Alterations have one eyebrow arched as they survey the surrounding pop landscape -- they know they can do better. Strip it down, keep it lean, sweat off the fat. Despite their propensity for reducing the elements of pop to its essential core, Expert Alterations are minimal, but not skeletal -- their bones are strong and their songs linger long after the music is over. The band's influences range from the well-trod (TVPs, The Wedding Present) to roads less traveled (Yeah Yeah Noh, Close Lobsters) and they process them into songs that can stand side-by-side with such standard-bearers. We loved their cassette demo from 2014 so much that we somehow finagled the band into letting us press this limited vinyl EP. One-sided with hand-stamped labels and a silk-screened jacket, it's a perfect pop artifact and one that won't be around for long.

Neverever

Shake-A-Baby 12" vinyl/CD EP

Fantastic new EP from this great LA band that mixes up classic pop influences like The Raspberries, Dwight Twilley and Phil Seymour, ELO, Kim Fowley, Fleetwood Mac, Big Star, Alvin Stardust and Sandy Salisbury with a thoroughly modern power-pop edge. Cut from the same classicist pop cloth at their debut album, on Shake-A-Baby Neverever sharpen their tunes, hone their hooks and brighten their palette.

Red

Weekend

Red 12" vinyl/CD EP/Ltd Edition 12" vinyl

Weekend follow up on their amazing debut album Sports with this excellent EP that packs more ideas into 5 songs than a lot of bands do into a whole record. From the spooked grind of "Sweet Sixteen" to the post-punk pop of "Hazel," Red rules.

We Love You So Bad

Kids On A Crime Spree

We Love You So Bad 12" vinyl/CD

Amazing Spector-ian power pop from this great Oakland group helmed by Mario out of From Bubblegum To Sky/Ciao Bella. Bandmates Bill and Becky add plenty of punky punch, and the tunes are pure hand-clapping, foot-stomping pop perfection. Excellent!

Brave Irene

Brave Irene

Brave Irene 12" vinyl/CD EP

Excellent pop from this Vancouver band led by Tiger Trap/Go Sailor/Softies alumnus Rose Melberg. Prominent keyboards and the fuzzed-out guitars lend slightly psychedelic vibe that slots in well with early Flying Nun bands and even some of the LA Paisley Underground scene. Eight fab songs, including "No Fun" and "Longest Day."
