Hidden Gem Records Release Colorwheel Compilation

FrontJpgSmallThis Colorwheel Compilation popped up in my mailbox earlier this week, so I’ve been spinning it for the last few days.  First, Hidden Gem Records is a little label in Philly, not unlike our own ATH label, just trying to put out tunes they love.  Second, the compilation was always going to win me over, compiling bands we’ve already filled these pages with such as Tape Waves, Night Panther, the Death of Pop.  You can stream several of the tracks that appear on the compilation below, and for those fans of great pop music, you’ll want to go HERE to grab yourself a copy.  It comes on a rad swirled colored vinyl.

Dreamy Girl Pop from Tape Waves

tw_letyougo_coverThe image on the cover of the new album from Tape Waves is quite fitting for their upcoming release, Let You Go.  It’s five palm trees stranded amidst a fairly cloudless sky. It’s an image that leans towards warm climes and ocean breezes, which is precisely what the latest single from the duo sounds like. There’s a casual bounce from the drums and pristine angular guitar work while Kim Weldin whispers melodious vocal atop it all.  You need tunes for your trip to the beach? Then be sure to grab this album from Bleeding Gold Records on July 28th.
