Heya, here's a mix for people who leave the party early to go home and listen to their own records instead. Nothing worse than being stuck in a room with crap beer, crap company and even crappier music right? We only need our box of records, a packet of crisps and a couple of Southern Tiers IPA and we're good.
Two great new Swedish bands: Tiger Tape, formerly Moofish Catfish, who released the sweet album I Woke Up In Hökarängen and The Andersen Tapes which is Amanda of Free Loan Investments new thing. We kinda missed that old school Swedish twee punk sound so it's great to hear these two bands.
Soft Targets is an awesome new track by Pheromoans that is due out on slabs of vinyl. The slab of vinyl will be called It Still Rankles. Release party February 26th in London. Easily one of our most anticipated albums of this year. We just received their cover flexi of Shark Fucks and Government Center out on Scotch Tapes and it's so good.
New tracks by Ale Mania, Dum Dum Girls, Babies, Vivian Girls, Bass Drum Of Death, all coming out soon. The Notes, Moonhearts and Demon's Claws should of course have been on our favourite tracks of 2010 list but, yeah, we screwed up. We do that sometimes. It's ok.
Two amazing covers - Jake Jones of Christmas does a stunning version of Beat Happenings 'Our Secret' (Somebody please release this on vinyl!) and So Cow covers the Nerves on a upcoming Nerves tribute compilation on Volar which also features Grass Widow, Reading Rainbow, Hunx And His Punx, Davila 666 and a few more. Basically all the bands that took over our decks these last two years.
The Sediment Club sound like we wanted The Sexual Objects to sound: Angular and Fire Engineny. Friendo we absolutely adore and they have a split 7" with Women, Cold Pumas and Fair-Ohs out on Faux Discx.
The pop punk gem that is Sea Pinks (Neil of Girls Names) have a 12" out on CF Records (with the superb Peripheral Vision). Really looking forward to hearing the Youth Is Wasted cassette when we get it.
Darlings Fergus & Geronimo finally have a LP out after some truly great 7" singles but it was kinda uneven. Love 'The World Never Stops' though, so good.
And to finish it off we've thrown in a couple of punk and lo-fi indie pop tracks, booty dance inducing Heavy Times, great tracks by Gun Outfit and Spider & The Webs and a french dude. Hope you like it, and if you do please support the bands.
Oh almost forgot! We really love the fuzzy and lo-fi track 'Sleeping Bag' by Seacat that was on a cassette compilation out on Slampt. Does anybody know more about this band?
