It’s been a great summer for incredible pop songs. BEGINNERS have managed to fight their way to my “amazing pop songs that came out of nowhere list 2014”. This self-titled EP is a trojan horse of superbly-crafted earworm-cultivating pop gems that just get better the more you listen. It’s the unforgettable “Who Knows” that you might have heard of before as you’ve browsed gossip hound Perez Hilton‘s site or maybe you know the song from seeing THIS VIDEO on Huffington Post of a man dancing backwards.
BEGINNERS are Samantha Barbera – Vocals/Bass, Neeraj Kane – Guitar (Keys) and Jason Walker on Drums and they are based in LA. The best thing I can do is point you toward the video to their song “Who Knows” so you get the idea of why I’m releasing this little tape for them!
This self-titled EP is limited to 100 tapes. POST/POP has 50 that’s available in the shop and Samantha has 50 which you should be able to get from the band when they tour (I think they are going to be in europe later this year too!)
Have a look at how lovely the tape looks. Samantha wanted them to be transparent black and I’ve not made tapes with those shells before, but they came out SO good.
Buy the tape while there’s still some left by clicking on THIS LINK, or on the picture of HETTIE on the right that says “SHOP” on it! You can also buy it by walking into Rough Trade. You can find out more about BEGINNERS by clicking on the below links:
You can also buy the digital version of this EP (you know, if for some reason you’re not keen on tapes!) by visiting the BEGINNERS itunes:
hope you enjoy it guys!
p.s. this is the last POST/POP tape of the summer. Yes, there will be no tapes in August but there WILL be POST/POP tshirts! Why is there a break? because I am saving them all up for Cassette Store Day on September 27th where there will be 5 or 6 releases on one day! Very special releases from some of the biggest bands around today. There will be no preorder for these tapes, and they will be available in all good record stores and this site!
