Ribbon Stage – Playing Possum


The Shop Assistants revival continues – well just look at that album cover for a start! Alongside Star Party, Artsick and Jeanines New York’s Ribbon Stage now re-join the mix two years after their debut EP My Favorite Shrine. The band, who feature vocalist Anni Hilator alongside Mari Softie (Ratas del Vaticano/Tercer Mundo/Exotica/Pobreza Mental) and Jolie M-A (Juicy II/Boys Online), will be releasing their debut album Hit With The Most later this year.

Playing Possum is the first single to be lifted from said album and it’s a short fuzzy indiepop song which is guaranteed to get my ears tingling. It’s a relationship in decline song, the sort of which graced by youth more than once in the 1980s. That’s songs not relationships although thinking about it young love and all that….

Anyway Hit With The Most will be released by perennialdeath on October 16 2022. It can be pre-ordered from here. The single can be purchased from Bandcamp.
