A good day for shopping

I'm so behind on things I'd want to write about! There are enough interesting releases; I just don't have the time. Here's a quick shopping list for recent things I've loved, and I think you will too.

Out for a while, but still available on 7" vinyl and 3" CD is this unique WeePOP! release, where The Smittens & The Just Joans both present one new original song and a cover of one of the other band's songs. Four winners.

Not too long after the grower You're alight 7", Eux Autres return with four new songs on the Strangled Days 10", released on the charming WIAIWYA label. Very highly recommended!

Slumberland keeps 'em coming. This Blue genes 7" is a great first release by this very promising band. Listen to the MP3 below for an impression.

The Parallelograms have split, but their music is still alive. Three more future bubblegum-punk classics coming your way on one pretty 7". A worthy farewell indeed.

A new Horwitz CDR on This Almighty Pop, with three new songs as pretty as the packaging.

Voxtrot's suprising return to form, with the Berlin without return 7".

Searching For The Now Again

Slumberland Records is (finally!) continuing their ace Searching For The Now split single series. The idea is simple: two great bands, one great single, and a bunch of often exclusive songs on beautifully coloured 7 inch of vinyl. After a few months of waiting, here are number 5 and number 6:

SFTN5: Liechtenstein & The Faintest Ideas
SFNT6: The School & George Washington Brown

Buy these here.
