Frankie Rose And The Outs

Smashing debut album from Ms Rose and her excellent new band. Spooked, melancholic pop with echoes of Phil Spector's Wall of Sound, The Aislers Set, Shop Assistants and Opal. Features "Candy" and "Little Brown Haired Girls."

Dansette Dansette

Tender Trap

Helmed by Talulah Gosh and Heavenly alums Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey, Tender Trap combine the harmonies, oohs, ahs and sha-la-las of classic girl-pop with the stripped down beats and dirty guitars of the Shop Assistants and The Vaselines. Revitalized by the addition of key new members, Dansette Dansette is a smashing and very welcome return for some of indie-pop's most influential players.

Doomed Forever

Procedure Club

Noisy lo-fi pop with the emphasis on NOISE from this Connecticut duo, wherein carefully constructed tunes are given a fierce work-over by layers of guitar fuzz and synth scree. An amazing album packed with excellent songs that strike just the right balance between the songs and the noise, between structure and chaos.

7th Date

Spectrals

Excellent Spector-esque pop that combines classic 50s/60s songwriting with modern suss and a punk rock vibe. 7th Date is Spectrals' first release for Slumberland and it's a corker - an understated slow-dance shimmy punctuated by tambourine shakes and tinkling bells. Lovely!

Do You Want A Boyfriend?

Tender Trap

Tender Trap are back and man did we miss them. With two extra girl voices (from new members guitarist Elizabeth and drummer Katrina) this great single combines the harmonies, oohs, ahs and sha-la-las of classic girl-pop with the stripped down beats and dirty guitars of the Shop Assistants and The Vaselines. The punk-rocking flip side "The Sum and The Difference" is exclusive to this single.

Say No To Love

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart

The Pains are back with a perfect pop single for those hot summer months. "Say No To Love" is an absolute smash, a tune bursting with melody, great riffs, delicious guitar jangle and the infectious energy we've some to expect from the Pains. "Lost Saint" on the flip is an altogether moodier affair, and exclusive to this single.

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.
