A Double Scoop

 It's the Thirteenth...

There's too many bands on this to try and parse out where they're from.


Pop American Style (1996)

A double disc set of the state of the Union of indiepop goodness circa 1996.

Track listings and links are on Discogs.

It's forty bands with a final secret unidentified bonus track to boot. It's a veritable who's who of who to know and listen to in the ranks of indiepop from that point in time. Let it be your guide.

Minimalism


You care, you google.


North Cedar (1993)

House of Large Sizes from Cedar Falls, Iowa were always a formidable live band.



Beat Him Up (1995)

Helen Love. Welsh girls advocating violence.

Still Less to Say.


Listening to the Moles and typing about this.

Don't expect much from my end.








Going Stagg (1999)

I know nothing.

The only information I have is the insert, so best guess is that they're from Sun Valley, CA and released this record in the year of our Prince, 1999. Even their website is a dead end.

It's some really nice indiepop.

That's all the info I need.



Grayson Lane (2000)

I have even less on this band. It's a shared release by Drive-In, a Michigan based label & Season, an Australian based label. Both now defunct. There's no indication of where the band is from or anything beyond first names.

Whatever. More indiepop.

You like indiepop, don't you?

Taking a Dump....truck


Multitasking again.

D is for Dumptruck (1983)

Keep it short and sweet.

Dumptruck was from Boston and released a number of records of which this is the first.

That is all I care to currently type about it.

The rest is up to you.

Make your mama proud.

Let's Top Off the Month


Quickly. I got shit to do.




Here it is the very thing you never actually knew your life had been missing for so long.

Modern Japanese neo-bossa nova.

It's like something straight out of the Katamari video game soundtrack. (Which is pretty fucking awesome in itself. I seriously bought a four disc version of that soundtrack and I'm the person who normally mutes the music as the first thing I do when setting up to play a new game...)

You're welcome.



Long Goodbye (1999)

Here's the final single by the Hang-Ups since I got it and I needed something else to post today and I've already posted everything else I had by them last year sometime. (Do a search. I'm not your Google.) It's more of the same and will have to tide us all over until they record new material.

Which may actually happen. For an anniversary deal last year they played an in-store at the Electric Fetus with more new songs than I wanted to hear at the time. So perhaps they will reappear in another form in the near future.
