CHARLES – THAT’S HOW BABY LEARNS // L.A. DREAMPOP ON AN AWESOME TAPE!

IMG_8962 (1)

 

Some people apparently start revolutions from their beds. I, in times gone by, have built space station forts from pillows and duvets and imagination. Charlotte Lindèn Ercoli Coe aka Charles has created an awesome album of considerable dream-pop classics that not only perfectly suit our format of choice – Cassettes! In case you weren’t listening – but feels like it was made for it. Now I’m not saying producing ‘That’s What Baby Learns’ from the comfort of some wood and linen is any more of an achievement than my pillow space fort, but it’s probably a lot easier to drop into everyday conversation.

As you have become accustomed, and before I wax on about this gem of an album, have a little listen and come back when you’re convinced:

 

 

Effing great huh? It’s the kind of album I can sit back and close my eyes and let it wash over me with it’s dreamy layered super pop. It also feels like reading someone’s diary (specifically Charlotte’s!)  but a diary written with Ariel Pink stationery (why isnt there Ariel Pink stationery?). It’s getting some good hype at the moment and you can read one such review over at Gorilla vs Bear.

Charlotte is playing with POST/POP favourite, Neon Indian on Feb 24th (tomorrow, day of release!) so if you are in Hollywood and have a ticket to the show, you can buy this tape from the lady herself, or from POST/POP using any of the links that points to “SHOP” on this site.

I can’t recommend CHARLES enough, but I am incredibly biased as I am trying to get you to listen/buy so don’t tale my word for it, check her out in these other places too and make your own mind up!

NO CARS // YOKO GOES TO BOLLYWOOD – CASSETTE ALBUM OUT NOW!

 

I’ve released a few tapes for NO CARS and seen their evolution from a novelty pop band, to a fully-fledged juggernaut of originality and FUN. This is the third album POST/POP has released for NO CARS and it’s the best by far. A concept album where the concept is ” Japanese Girls Do Bollywood” is so far deep into the rabbit-hole, we may never see the light of day.

‘Yoko Does Bollywood’ continues the No Cars tradition of name checking as many foodstuffs as possible until the actual product has no meaning and all you know about ‘Curry’ is what lead singer Haruna tells you. I originally believed Curry to be a nice menu option, preferably as hot as possible, but now I know it to be integral to a dance routine and cultural confusion.

MODEL VILLAGE // HEALING CENTRE – LTD EDITION TAPE OUT TODAY!

 

modelvillagepostpop2

I want to go on record that ‘Healing Centre’ is the best MODEL VILLAGE album there is. You see, I thought the last one was the best, but turns out this one is. If I say this about their next album, please remind of this paragraph so I can reign in my adoration for a band with the specific skill of wrangling every inch of pop from a chorus, until there is nothing left but heartfelt verses of  heartbreak and the administration of a family owned business.

 

God I love this album, but I want to point you first toward Track 5, also known in certain circles as ‘Time To Share’ (I’ve helpfully put the whole album to stream below). Have a listen now…

NO CARS // ‘CRESS’ – LIMITED EDITION CRESS GREEN TAPE + FREE PACKET OF CRESS!

The brand new single from the best Japanese girl-band that has a Racoon as a drummer! YES, its POST/POP fave, NO CARS! This is the third release we have done for NO CARS and wont be the last. They are just the best live band in london, and this single is the best translation of that energy onto a rectangle possible.

In other exciting news, I also directed the music video… and WHAT A VIDEO! The premise is “what would happen if NO CARS starred in a Japanese Karaoke video in the 1980s, but then a spaceship landed and an alien Raccoon tried to steal their CRESS, but then they developed psycho-kinetic powers from eating too much cress, and fought the Raccoon to the death?” This is the sexy result.

NO CARS // CRESS (Official Video) from Jed Shepherd on Vimeo.

This cassette comes in a delightfully green shell, the real colour of the cress found in the forest of Japan + you will get a REAL packet of Cress with it! Yes, you too can now grow your own cress, in the comfort of your own home OR office! You can watch your cress grow while listening to No Cars serenade you with their song ‘CRESS’.

If you can make it to london tonight (September 4th), NO CARS are playing a free gig at the South Bank Centre and if you go, not only can you buy the tape, but you also get to see me! Also HETTIE will be there too so you can high-five her and then go buy her EP!

Please note: If you listen to the song so much, you actually do get “hooked on my cress”, please do not blame POST/POP. Cress consumption should not be taken lightly and may lead to Salad abuse.
