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!

DAPHNE & CELESTE // YOU AND I ALONE – 24.7.2015

Jed, have you heard the new Daphne & Celeste song? You’d love it!”  said Dave Cronen, manager of ASH/Johnny Marr. I hadn’t at the time, but went home that night and watched the video. “Woah! Max Tundra produced this? Woah! Daphne & Celeste can really sing! Woah, there’s a Twin Peaks reference? Woah! its all about cassette tapes?” Yes Dave, I LOVE IT! So then I set about speaking to Mr. Tundra about releasing the cassette and this is it below!

HELEN LOVE // YOU CAN’T BEAT A BOY WHO LOVES THE RAMONES – Released 24/07/2015

There are so many reasons why I love this band. First of all just look at the photo below. Any band who actually got to hang out with Joey Ramone is okay in my book, but look, one of them is wearing a classic ASH tshirt, which makes this quite possibly, the greatest photo of all time.

POST/POP @ HACKNEY RECORD FAIR // APRIL 12TH

HRF

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.
