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."

Never Mine

Brilliant Colors

Inspired in equal parts by post-punk DIY fervor and the spiky pop of C86 and early Flying Nun/Creation label output, Brilliant Colors are back with two brand new songs that further cement their status as first class purveyors of crash pop. Both tunes are non-lp!

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.

Thee Only One

Frankie Rose

Haunting pop from Brooklyn's Frankie Rose. Timeless music that recalls the ghosts of 60s girl group sounds, Brill Building songwriters and the 80s/90s/00s continuum of Black Tambourine, The Aislers Set and her previous groups Vivian Girls and Crystal Stilts.
