The Springfields
Singles 1986-1991

During the late Eighties and early Nineties, Ric Menck and Paul Chastain became central players in the American indie-pop scene, playing in groups such as Velvet Crush, Bag O’ Shells and Choo Choo Train. Their most popular and well-loved guise, however, was The Springfields. Singles 1986-1991 collects the five glorious power-pop singles they released on various labels, adding a bonus track.

David Lance Callahan
Strange Lovers

Awww he's a big softy really. Better known as the snarling, sneering voice behind both the Wolfhounds and Moonshake where he often comes across as an angry commuter gone feral, David Lance Callahan has gone all fluffy with these first solo recordings. Here he embraces acoustic guitar tones and even a glockenspiel. Bets are already off as to whether he was wearing his slippers while recording this.

D.A. Stern / Jacuzzi Boys
"Nosh Lately​?​": A Tribute to The Beasties Boys' "Hello Nasty"

Slumberland Records (The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Joanna Gruesome) celebrate twenty years of the Beastie Boys’ Hello Nasty with this split 7”. “Nosh Lately?” sees two artists from the current crop of U.S. indie upstarts putting a fresh spin on tunes from the seminal 1998 LP. Jacuzzi Boys garage-ify the 60s psychedelia of ‘Song For The Man’ while D.A. Stern and Dirty Projectors/Ava Luna affiliate Felicia Douglass beef up the Bossa-Nova beat on ‘I Don’t Know’.

Papercuts
Parallel Universe Blues

Parallel Universe Blues is the 6th album by Papercuts, AKA singer/songwriter Jason Quever. Quever recently relocated from San Francisco to Los Angeles and the album’s lyrics are informed by this upheaval. Despite a longer break between albums than usual, Quever’s excellent songwriting and atmospheric production that recall’s bands such as The Velvet Underground, Spiritualised and Jesus and Mary Chain are both firmly in place. White vinyl LP or CD on Slumberland.

Peel Dream Magazine
Modern Meta Physic

NYC’s Peel Dream Magazine release their debut LP Modern Meta Physic via Slumberland Records. Yes, your hunch was correct - the band’s name is indeed a reference to the late John Peel. Peel would probably have liked this lot, especially if they’d surfaced around the start of the ‘90s at that time when shoegazified Velvet Underground paeans were all the rage.

Tony Molina
Kill The Lights

I just can't believe they are marketing this as an album. It's over by the time you've blown your nose but on the plus side the music is absolutely brilliant. Tony Molina writes perfect mini-jangle pop things that sound like a pint-sized Teenage Fanclub or the Byrds. Opener “Nothing I Can Say” is so good but I'd be happy if it was three times it's length. I suppose that's what the repeat button is for. 

Smokescreens
Used To Yesterday

Slumberland (Joanna Gruesome, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart) with a very Slumberland-y LP here. LA transplants Smokescreens apparently formed over a shared love of New Zealand’s famous Flying Nun imprint, and one whiff of Used To Yesterday will have you in no doubt that they’re telling the truth on that count. The songs here are the sort of pleasant indie jangles that Yuck do so well.

Frankie Rose
Cage Tropical

Frankie Rose has been around a bit having been a member of Dum Dum Girls, Crystal Stilts and Vivian Girls. This is her third solo album and initial clues to it's sound would suggest the sort of tightly knit kraut-pop similar to that recently made successful by the likes of Jane Weaver with synths and Neu -ike drums in abundance. 

Real Numbers
Wordless Wonder

Real Numbers are a good old dreamed-up indie pop act, formed from members of acts like Cozy, Private Interests and France Camp. Wordless Wonder is their debut full-length album, and it breezes along beautifully. Hovering harmonies and all sorts of interesting tales told in the lyrics. Out on the Slumberland label.

Confront The Truth

Sold out

Terry Malts
Lost At The Party

Overdriven indie pop that keeps the grit and drive of their favourite punk albums. Think The Buzzcocks or The Undertones waking up and getting into joyous pop. Keeping the riffs, the energy and the trashy back line sound, but a sprinkle of catchy oohs and ahhhs and cleanly sung vocal choruses. Positive energy.

  • Slumberland

Bent Shapes
Wolves of Want

Bent Shapes hail from Boston, where they appear to lead the indie-pop scene. Second full-length Wolves of Want has sing-song boy-girl vocals, catchy riffs, and songs about living life and mental illness. This first pressing of the vinyl is strictly limited: probably your only chance to get these tracks on ‘bone+pink colour’ vinyl. On Slumberland.

Young Guv
Ripe 4 Luv

When he isn’t being all hardcore, Ben Cook (Fucked Up/No Warning) writes pop hits for Kelly Clarkson and Taylor Swift. With his Young Guv project, he (sort of) reconciles these two sides of his musical personality, offering exuberant tunes which are nevertheless a little ragged at the edges, evoking Shoes, Big Star and occasionally the anthemic melodicism of the above popettes.

The Aislers Set
The Last Match

Mixing '60s pop with gritty guitar distortion and a nonchalant delivery, here's a reissue of a record I've still got from first time around - the second effort by Californian slacker-indie veterans The Aislers Set, 2000's 'The Last Match'. This time round the shabby-looking plain sleeve with pasted tracklist of the original is replaced with proper printed sleeves. If only I'd waited.

The Aislers Set
Terrible Things Happen

Just look at my original review of this. Horiffic innit? That's how shit we were back then. A band who weren't shit of course were Aislers Set who were a bag of fun back in the day but whose stock has risen in recent years as the kids turn back to the twee pop their mums and dads liked back in the '90's. Aislers Set was formed by ex Henry's Dress leader Amy Linton who wrote and played all this stuff herself and she really delivered the goods on this, their debut LP. It's full of mod-ish melodic 60's influenced pop with her sweet vocals plopped on top like a particularly delicious cherry on an already exquisite cake.

Literature
Chorus

Hailing from Philadelphia, PA, Literature construct classic breezy intelligent indie/jangle pop with a sweetly fey demeanour. Aimed squarely at fans of the Field Mice, Orange Juice, McCarthy and The Smiths, this album comes over as classic-sounding Slumberland fare with hearty nods to the glory days of the late 80's

Gold-Bears
Dalliance

Slumberland records is something of an indie institution and if you want your records jangly, strummy and '90s fixated it should be one of your first ports of call. Gold-Bears are a typical Slumberland band in that they recall the shambling grind of the Wedding Present but have something a little more exotic to offer. This is by way of classically influenced structures that bring to mind the oddball antipodean pop of the Verlaines and the Bats.

Terry Malts
Nobody Realizes This is Nowhere

Terry is a right '70s name isn't it? Terry Malts then is the perfect moniker for this San Franciscan lot who are blatantly in love with the buzzsaw pop-punk of the late '70s. They count the Undertones and the Descendants amongst their influences and their drummer is perfectly named as Nathan Sweatt. No relation to Keith...another fine name from the 1970s.
