Slumberland began operations in 1989 as a collective effort consisting of members of DC area bands Velocity Girl, Big Jesus Trash Can/Whorl, Black Tambourine and Powderburns. We were inspired by such musical happenings as C-86, early Creation, Postcard, K, Bus Stop, lower East Side noise, and also the renegade art aesthetics of people like Cage, Burroughs and Duchamp. The explosion of punk had left behind a thriving network of ‘zines, labels and distributors and we felt that there was room for our noise-loving, pop-obsessed aesthetic. While there were loads of US indie labels releasing a steady stream of 7″s, there wasn’t much pop going on.”


Gold-Bears second album is on the way: Atlanta’s noise-pop greats are back with their second album. Dalliance is more focused and abrasive than that 2011 debut, combining their noise-pop influences from forebears like Boyracer and The Wedding Present with shades of the post-hardcore and post-punk.

The Pains of Being Pure At Heart are back! Brooklyn Indie Pop stalwarts The Pains of Being Pure at Heart just announced their third LP entitled Days of Abandon. The first single from the record, “Simple And Sure.” Listen ti it here. Order

Devon Williams‘ third solo album is a tour de force of shimmering, melodic pop, seamless blend of power-pop, orchestrated soft-rock and layered, complex jangle-pop that recalls such forebears as The Church, Felt and Aztec Camera. Listen to Flowers. Order

All out on 3rd June. Plus vinyl re-presses: first album from The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, Frankie Rose‘s “Interstellar,” The Mantles‘ “Long Enough To Leave” and Joanna Gruesome‘s “Weird Sister.”
