a: The Spring
b: Taken Away by Aliens / Glass of Champagne
This just arrived in the post, and I have been listening to it on repeat all afternoon. Simply put, this 7″ will make you feel happy, which should be the ultimate goal of all pop music of this sort. Out on vinyl-collector boutique The Great Pop Supplement, this is limited to 300 numbered 7”s in circular, shell like sleeves. I found this via Seven Inches Every Day blog, and am very happy that I took his advice on this one.
From what I know, Pet Politics is one man, Magnus Larsson, from Gothenburg, Sweden. Referencing the American lo-fi movement (think Crooked Rain era Pavement meets the songs that Tobin Sprout sings on the early Guided By Voices albums), this band is everything that Loney, Dear promised, but ultimately wasn’t for me this year.
Good shit: highly recommended.
Listen to the songs here, and then order by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org for availability/pricing. I would act fast, as this gem won’t be around for much longer.
