Central

Nord Express

Central LP/CD

Dark, personal pop constructions that pay homage to such critical influences as third lp-era VU, Galaxie 500 and The Go-Betweens. The Nord sound is unique, though, and fans of groups like Bedhead and Empress should definitely check this out.

Sharky

Nord Express

Sharky 7"

Stripped-down melancholic pop with an understated grandeur. Still, quiet catharsis.

Just A Taste

various artists

18 song compilation drawn from the rare, early Summershine singles, including great songs by The Sugargliders, The Rainyard, The Earthmen and others. Brilliant 90's pop from this under-appreciated Australian label.

Nord Express

Nord Express

Beezer

Beatnik Filmstars

Beezer CD

Huge compilation of rare cuts, single tracks and outtakes from this Bristol group that specializes in spiky, Wedding Present-meets-Fall style pop.

We Are Made Of The Same Wood

Boyracer

The last release by the classic Stew/Matty/Nic/Ged line-up. A perfect summation of the Boyracer sounds up to that point.

Everyone Must Touch The Stove

Lorelei

Lorelei was a Virginia trio that took the sound of mid-80's alienation (think Cure, Crispy Ambulance) and added a shoegazer's love of wall of sound guitars and the rhythmic tangle of Moonshake or PiL. Deep, twisted stuff that stretches pop to its limit.

Cabled Linear Traction

Hood

Unique and accomplished first album by this Leeds group who combined FSA fuzz/folk with post-rock and Antipodean pop. An essential document.

Pink Noize

Beatnik Filmstars

Scrappy, edgy guitar chaos with a fair dose of twisted/repetitive songwriting by way of The Fall and Pavement.

Belreve

Belreve

Belreve 7"/CD EP

Simple yet charmingly effective pop from this Ohio group featuring New Bomb Turks punk hero Matt Reber.

Radio France Sessions EP

St. Christopher

Chiming pop from this one-time Sarah band with echoes of The Walker Brothers and Aztec Camera. Elegant, finely-crafted songs recorded live in the studio for French radio.

Til Another Time

Linda Smith

Intimate lo-fi folk/pop from this pioneer of the bedroom recording community. Strong songs should please fans of early Magnetic Fields.

Asleep

Lorelei

Asleep 7"

Our uncategorizable post-rock heroes, who somehow manage to blend Moonshake with early Cure and The Smiths. Essential.

Something To Hold Onto

The Parasites

Brilliant sunny day punk-pop for fans of The Ramones, Mr T Experience and The Descendents. With a Leonard Cohen cover on the flip.

Love It, Be It/State

Jane Pow

Smashing mod/pop in the Kinks/Jam tradition with truly great songwriting. Love It, Be It is one of THE lost, great albums of the 90's -- a Beach Boys/Bee Gees-influenced masterpiece with a caustic, cynical lyrical point-of-view.

Cool Chick #59

The Earthmen

Fabulous super-charged pop from this now-defunct Australian band. Great hooks and not afraid to rock out with them.

[more info + MP3s]

Punk Rock City USA

Sleepyhead

Smashing, surging punk rock in the best Superchunk style. With a gorgeous Game Theory cover on the b-side.
