The Aislers Set Reissues

Slumberland Records and Suicide Squeeze Records are proud to join together to re-release all three albums from seminal indie-pop band The Aislers Set. The albums have been re-mastered and in the case of How I Learned To Write Backwards re-sequenced. All three will feature new eco-friendly CD packaging and will be available on vinyl LP for the first time in at least a decade. Further, the band will play a select set of shows this Fall, and a new album of singles and rarities is being prepared for release in early 2015.

Terrible Things Happen and The Last Match are the first releases in a projected year-long celebration of Slumberland's 25th anniversary. We're super excited to make these incredible albums available again, and we're even doing a limited edition color vinyl run of each for mail order and the band's upcoming west coast shows only. Look for more reissues, special gigs and publications soon.

"How I Learned To Write Backwards" is available from Suicide Squeeze.

These reissues are shipping now! Color viny available via mail order and at the band's shows only.

The Last Match LP/CD
Where The Aislers' debut Terrible Things Happen's synthesis of 60s mod-pop, 70s punk and 80s/90s indie flavors provided an end-of-the-century summation of where pop had been and where it was heading, 2000's The Last Match upped the ante even farther. More ambitious in conception, it expanded the band's sound into more orchestral areas. While the songs are still driving and catchy as a fish hook, the arrangements are far more sophisticated. It's a must-listen album, one that fueled fond memories, sparked love affairs, set off spontaneous dance parties, and reminded us all of the power of song-craft and melodies and POP. Mail order copies of the new vinyl reissue are on blue + white swirl vinyl while supplies last. Limit two per customer, please. LP includes a code for a free download.

Terrible Things Happen LP/CD
The Aislers Set began as a vehicle for the songs of Linton, who had most recently co-led San Francisco's legendary Henry's Dress and drummed in Go Sailor with her pal Rose Melberg; this is their debut album from 1998. Not content to merely (!) write some of the most sublime pop tunes this side of Ray Davies, Linton got busy in her garage studio and recorded and produced almost the whole record by herself. It's a remarkable feat, and a love for such producers as Phil Spector and Brian Wilson shines from each and every groove. It's a beautiful, multi-layered record and a genuinely great achievement of home recording. Mail order copies of the new vinyl reissue are on red + white swirl vinyl while supplies last. Limit two per customer, please. LP includes a code for a free download. [more info + MP3s] [BUY LP » $13.00]   [BUY CD » $9.00]
