Vacation Club - Hold My Hand
New jingle-jangle beach pop vid from the boys from Indianapolis. Self-titled tape out now Happenin Records, but they don’t ship to the UK, whaaaaat? :-(
Fans of Fuzzbook will remember Oldando’s Girls On The Beach from our mega huge smash hit mixtape Fuzzbook Uno.
Well, it’s good news because the boys are back with a new cassette.
‘Untitled (The Girl Tape)’ is a lo-fi surfpop lovers dream, oozing fuzzy riffs and attitude in short but sweet two minute blasts. The first track ‘Fashionably Late’ is our personal favourite of the four.
The cassette and is available now via Godless America Records. Digital music fans / robots can also stream the album on BANDCAMP. (You can order the tape from bandcamp too)
‘Back to the Future’ is a slice of dreamy garage-pop from London’s Being There.
The 4some released their debut album ‘Breaking Away’ via Young and Lost Club yesterday.
You can buy the CD from PICCADILLY RECORDS.
‘No Curtains’ by Scribbler appears on the Khyber Compilation Vol.II which is a compilation made by The Khyber Art Space in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The tape features various songs from local bands.
The tape was released in March. Scribbler’s track is our favourite but you can listen to the whole lot on bandcamp.
We couldn’t believe our luck when we saw Plymouth’s Gorgeous Bully was releasing another EP so soon after ‘The Young Obese’ then we heard it and we couldn’t believe our luck again, because it’s even better.
‘You Cant Fight the Sickness with Tea and Biscuits’ is a beautiful mess of DIY fuzz of the first degree, we absolutely love it.
To top it off, you can name your price for it on their bandcamp page. Make sure you give something though, it’s definitely deserved.
Long live Gorgeous Bully.
Garage Pop growler ‘Apathy’ is the lead single from Orange County’s Mikal Cronin’s debut album. Good isn’t it?
The album is out now on Trouble In Mind Records.
You can buy the album on LP (or if you a gaylord its out on CD too) here
Congratulations you have got through the week! Here’s a bit of sun-drenched garage pop to celebrate.
It’s ‘Family Band’ the latest single from Australia’s Wild Oats. Its probably sunny in Australia now isn’t it? (bastards) anyway if you are in wet England just put it on and pretend your down under (watching Home and Away and drinking a Fosters)
Oh yeah and more good news, you can download the song straight from Soundcloud below.
Best friends are a garage surfpop band from Sheffield. Their second EP ‘Throwing Up’ is to be released on the 26th March 2012 via our Fuzzbook favourites Art is Hard Records.
You can stream the album from the bands bandcamp page. The physical album will be released on CD with a special edition 12 page photobook. Its limited to 100 so we’d suggest you preorder and quick!
We think this one is an absolute must! and with the sun poking his head round the corner (with his hat on) its perfect timing for a bit of DIY surfpop like this.
This is ‘Firerock’ by Orlando garage poppers Girls on the Beach.
The track comes from their 2 track self-titled EP released from their Bandcamp page in January.
Sometimes when we like a track we try to find out more but there just isnt any information around, unfortunately this is one of those cases, I guess we will just have to find out more when it happens.
