Midweek Catch Up #1 – Indiepop &c

A catch up of stuff caught on the Records I Like Radar.

The Radio Dept. have released a new single. Titled The Absence of Birds it’s backed with a remix of the same song. The former is a wispy indiepop song with folk-ish overtones whilst the latter mixes ambient with drone. You can get it from here.

Diet Cig released a new track at the end of last month. Titled Night Terrors it’s a fine example of alternative pop with scary lyrics to match – boo! You can get it from here.

Medway Scene veterans The Claim have a new single out next month in the shape of Spring Turns To Winter. It’s a split single release with fellow Medway scene veteran Jim Riley and his Blues Foundation backing band who just happen to be The Claim. It’s out on 7″ and digital formats via A Turntable Friend Records.

Lisa van Kampen aka Elsa Lester released a new digital EP called Back From Vacation a few weeks back. It contains five tracks that mix indiepop with garage rock. Sweet Ghost Inc. and Jurassic Heart are my pick of a very good bunch which you can get at a ridiculously low price from here.

The Reds, Pinks & Purples have their third single out in as many months. It’s a three track digital release entitled I Hope I Never Fall in Love and the title track is one of the best things they have done so far to date. It’s backed with a new version of Is Your Mind that Free? and another new track I Wouldn’t Die for Anyone. The artwork is as good as ever continuing the buildings theme. You can get it from here.

Swindon’s The King In Mirrors have a new digital album out on their own Baby Train Records. It features previous single Stop and Look and a number of new tracks. If well crafted indiepop is your thing then head over to here to stream, purchase or both!
