Perfect Indiepop from The Catenary Wires

CD72There’s two things at work here: one, Matinee Recordings is back at it this year and two, The Catenary Wires are made up of members of Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Tender Trap, etc.  With the first, I’m extremely happy, as the label is one of my favorite purveyors of divine indie pop.  As to the second, I think the aforementioned bands make this track alone worthy of your time. I couldn’t think of a better way to begin my week than to listen to a track where the male and female vocals fit so well that your can’t help but feel yourself swoon. They’ll be releasing their Red Red Skies CD via the label in June.

New Single from Tender Trap

No! This is not a post about TEMPER TRAP, this is about the great pop band, Tender Trap.  The group’s fronted by one of rock’s icons Amelia Fletcher of Talulah Gosh, and they’ll have a new album titled Ten Songs About Girls coming to you soon via Fortuna Pop in September.  But, for now they’ve contracted this brilliant new single that’s definitely going to hit you right in the pop heartstrings.  I love the muted guitar sound accompanied by the call-and-response vocal display before the group bursts off into blissful melody during the chorus.  If you don’t like this, it’s cool, but I’ll probably hate on you behind your back.
