STAR PARTY- Meadow Flower - LP(COL.) - TOUGH LOVE RECORDS

click to enlarge Limited edition of 550 copies on pastel-blue vinyl, with printed innersleeve, download-code included. First LP by this twopiece from Seattle, Carolyn Brennan and Ian Corrigan (ex-VEXX and GEN POP). Mostly high energy, fast-paced Punk Rock with a noisy crashing sound, contrasted by melodic and harmonic female vocals. But also some songs tend to sound like the C86 Twee-Pop, or as they call it misty coastal Rock. https://starpartyrocks.bandcamp.com/album/meadow-flower

New Release! STROPPIES- Levity - CD / LP - TOUGH LOVE RECORDS

click to enlarge New full album by this Australian Indie-Pop/Rock band from Melbourne. Contains 10 songs, with a sound reminiscent of XTC, New Zealands classic Flying Nun bands, and mostly the simply strcutured but instantly effective catchiness like with early WIRE's songs. A classic formula, with a unique touch of their own.
