Five Card Shuffle

A round up of sorts! Jetstream Pony have recently released a new track in the shape of Yellow Pills. Not sure the of the history of this one aside that it was recorded last Autumn but it’s a fine fuzzy pop song none the less. Crank it up. London label Damnably are releasing a compilation of Grrrl Gang’s work to date on vinyl and the solid lilac edition looks very nice indeed. Called Here To Stay it features nine tracks including two versions of the everlasting fave Dream Grrrl. Pre-order it from here. The Memory Fades posted a new demo … Continue reading Five Card Shuffle

Grrrl Gang – Dream Grrrl

London based label Damnably have released Dream Girl by Indonesian indiepop band, and new signings to the label, Grrrl Gang. It’s a rerecorded version of the single they released last year via Kolibri Rekords and if you think the song could not sound better you would be wrong. It’s a precursor a compilation of the band Damnably will be releasing in the future which will be the band’s first ever appearance on vinyl. Dream on! Instagram Continue reading Grrrl Gang – Dream Grrrl

Grrrl Gang – Not Sad, Not Fulfilled

More songs mainly about love, both shared and unrequited, from Indonesian indiepoppers Grrrl Gang who do their C86 thing to great effect especially on old fave Dream Grrrl. Things get more interesting on the melancholic Night Terrors and the Riot Grrrl inspired, both lyrically and musically, Guys Don’t Read Sylvia Plath which could be their finest moment to date. Given I said that in my last post their next track should be an absolute corker! Instagram Continue reading Grrrl Gang – Not Sad, Not Fulfilled

Grrrl Gang – Dream Grrrl

Grrrl Gang follow up their appearance on the recent Strawberry Punks compilation with a new track. It’s their best yet as they throw off the shackles of their influences, expanding their sound to great effect and the addition of male vocals works a treat. Whilst it could remind you of  any number of tracks it still retains originality packed with the right amount of excitement.   Another stunning indiepop track from Indonesia. It’s a free download from Kolibri Rekords but it’s worth a few bob at least. Instagram Continue reading Grrrl Gang – Dream Grrrl

Various – Strawberry Punks

Strawberry Punks is a compilation compiling five Indonesian bands who contribute a track each. This EP demonstrates how strong the Indonesian indiepop scene is. Go back a few years and whilst the music was good in most cases it was note for note copy of a any number of Sarah Records bands you could care to name. On this compilation however bands are now coming out of their comfort zone and expanding far from their influences none more so than The Whistling Possum and their track Them Are Pigs which fuses some of the danceable elements of post punk together … Continue reading Various – Strawberry Punks
