PEPA KNIGHT: DOUBLE A-SIDE CASSINGLE! “RAHH!” & “CLAMS” OUT JULY 16TH


“Rahh!” is the best song I have heard in 2014. I think that’s a good place to start this. We are halfway through the year and I’ve already heard my song of the summer, nay, the year and it’s all kinds of gorgeous. PEPA KNIGHT, he of Jinja Safari, hails from Sydney, Australia but sounds like he is from another planet, deciding to visit us here on the shiny bluey-greeny thing to bestow the intergalactic gift of POP.

It’s difficult to explain how much I love this song without hearing it first. Click on that link above the article and within seconds you’ll know what I’m talking about. See? I listen to music most of my waking day (not to mention the dream hours I put in) and go all out to try to find the best songs for my radio show and I can firmly say that, this beats all of them. If I was that way inclined, I’d make this my ringtone, and send texts to everyone in my contacts saying “call now, I’m in trouble, they’ve got my….” JUST to hear “Rahh” once again (and also to test my friends and family – which is an ongoing experiment and the results are inconclusive).

 

So you’ve made friends with your ears, how about giving your eyes a chance?

and you can listen to “CLAMS” here too. It sounds like the euphoric moment before your childhood spaceship crashes into the Okavango Delta and spills out all the harmonies in the world into the endorheic basin of the Kalahari. It’s currently on rotation on Australia’s Triple J so if you are anywhere else in the world, this is for you!

POST/POP is releasing “Rahh” and “Clams” as a double A-side cassingle on July 16th, which is not only the day that Elvis died, but also an ex-girlfriend’s birthday so I am trying to replace bad memories with good ones. Here is the artwork and its every shade of lovely.

I guess you could tape the song off the radio, print out this artwork and then not buy the tape, but don't do that please!

When I first started POST/POP, Apple Eyes were one of the first bands on my list to approach about releasing a tape, just after SLAYER and the soundtrack to Ernest Scared Stupid. Slayer rudely never came back to me and Jim Varney died (RIP) so I was very pleased it wasn’t 3 strikes out.

I’ve known Claire and Matt from Apple Eyes for about 10 years (?!), through various different bands including; Fantastic Mr Fox, The Hidden Messages and now Apple Eyes. The one thing that connects all of these bands is the pursuit of pop perfection (high five to all the alliteration-heads out there) and in every iteration, there has been some of the best choruses committed to song. Body Double is no different, and I’d go as far as saying its their most “Immediate” song yet. what do I mean by “Immediate“? It’s how you measure a good pop song; by its immediacy. How quick you say the words “FUCK THAT’S A GOOD SONG!” is where a tune sits on the Immediacy Scale. Even though I’ve only just invented the Immediacy Scale, “Body Double” by Apple Eyes gets a high 9.5.

LISTEN BELOW!

 

Sweetabix right? You can preorder now by clicking on the shop link at the top of the page or on that picture of HETTIE over on the right or by CLICKING ON THESE WORDS.

This single is LTD to 50 beautifully poppy cassettes and Matt informed me yesterday that there is even cassette based easter eggs about halfway through the song. See if you can notice it (I didn’t until I was specifically told!)

KIITES EP “The Disguise” Out Tomorrow, MAY 10th!

Afternoon, you may remember that I wrote about this release here: http://postpoprecords.com/2014/04/03/kiitesintro/

Now see the beautiful limited edition tapes with your eyes!

kiitestapesbox

and the artwork close up! I either put Mikey Glenister on the spine to suggest that he is the “spine of the band“, or perhaps it was the only way everyone could fit. Also, If you put lot of the tapes together it looks like a Mikey Glenister army of clones, hell-bent on forcing you to stare into the middle-distance… or else.

KIITES

 

You can see them live tomorrow at The Nest in Dalston, where you can buy these lovely tapes. Check out the KIITES FB for more deets: https://www.facebook.com/Kiites
