Those who’ve been carefully following the underground realm of pop music surely have heard the whispers about The Proper Ornaments. The band’s often thought of as a side-project for members of Veronica Falls, but you can tell the guys put some time in on the recording of their latest LP, Wooden Head. There’s nostalgic odes to the past, clever bits of current pop and pretty much as complete an album as you’re likely to find this year. Slumberland Records continue their summer hit list by releasing this album on July 8th. Join the club, love this band.

I don’t want to seem like I’m barking up the Slumberland Records tree, but they have yet another great band to work with, The Proper Ornaments. This is one of those bands that I feel like has been vastly underrated throughout their short existence. But, certain circles of pop aficionados, myself included will swear by the band. They’ve just signed on to release Wooden Head on July 8th, and I assure you, that such care will be placed on these songs that you’ll find it virtually impossible to ignore each track. It’s a little twee, a little like Real Estate, and a whole lot of amazing. Check the first single:
