As I am writing this, Jess Bartlet aka Island Fox (aka the singer from TREASURESEASON) is painstakingly illustrating each of her just-to-be-released cassette tape, with her fox logo. Yes, it’s just a square and 3 triangles, but its alot more difficult than you think when you have me (Jed) blasting 90s dance hits in the office. Here are some photos with the song we were listening to while it happened. Y’know, so you can roleplay? She has one of the best voices around right now and you have probably heard her on other artist’s tracks adding her skills to dream-pop masterpieces left, right and centre. Her own release is a Double A-Side featuring “Tectonic” and “Things I’ve Seen”, both produced by Benjamin Abbott.
POST/POP is at the Hackney Record Fair @ Dalston Epic in london, this Sunday April 12th. What’s on the POST/POP stall this time? Well the new double a-side tape (about to make a new post about it) from ISLAND FOX (aka Jess from Treasureseason) which is just lovely indeed. I will also have any ASH tapes I have leftoever (all the Subways ones are gone I think) and a selection of the POST/POP discography you may have missed. Also tshirts for £10 on the day and free badges!
Hope to see you there. I will be the one with the POST/POP wolf on my sweater, surrounded by tapes and boomboxes. Actually, there are a few tape labels there, so I will be the one buying other label’s tapes and VHS!
Timeout has listed it as one of the must-see events this weekend (mostly to do with POST/POP being there I am sure) and there is also craft beer and fanzines and other east london staples.
Come say hi!
