SLR30 Singles Subscription Series

Friends- Yr old pal Slumberland Records is turning 30 next year. Yikes! To celebrate the best way we know, we’re launching a 7” subscription series featuring a dozen nifty singles from folks like The Suncharms, Rat Columns, Dolly Dream (feat. Meg from US Girls), Wildhoney, David Callahan (The Wolfho...

Real Numbers

I don't think I've seen mention of Minneapolis' Real Numbers here before, they're a pretty great band in the vein of early TVPs, The McTells, Cause Co-Motion and maybe with a dash of early 14 Iced Bears in there too. They've had a solid string of 7"s and 12" EPs already, but we're super psyched to g...

Mercury Girls

Thought you all might be interested in the new Mercury Girls single we have coming out next month. Seriously perfect indiepop in the Veronica Falls/Makthaverskan/Fear of Men vein. Out May 20th just in time for their NYC Popfest show w/The Primitives and The Chesterfields. 255868005 https://mercurygi...

Expert Alterations

Haven't seen much mention of Expert Alterations on the board. Great young band from Baltimore, MD with a sound pitched somewhere between The Feelies, Felt and early Close Lobsters, perhaps. Kind of angular, kind of jangly, good tunes and nice folks. They had a self-released tape last year that we li...

Re: Slumberland Records

i have that hard left lathe cut, and on first listen was cursing having bought it, til i remembered that lathe cuts can need to be broken in. had never heard a worse-sounding one. a few spins later, it plays a lot better, but hard left will only ever be the second best 'hard' band who have their ow...

Literature (the band)

I figure a lot of you already know Philadelphia pop band Literature, but if not I think you'll like them. Classic indiepop with echoes of Orange Juice, Close Lobsters, Bodines, Brilliant Corners, etc etc. We've got their new album "Chorus" coming out in about a month and it's a corker. Have a listen...

Re: The Aislers Set

We're super excited to finally be able to make these reissues happen, glad that some of you are excited about them. A few notes: 1. The Exclaim article is a little misleading - the color vinyl of the first two albums will be mail order and band merch only. 2. While there may not be a crazy box set, ...

Hard Left

Thought some folks might be interested in a new band I'm in called Hard Left - we're an explicitly political group in kind of an early punk/Oi style. In addition to myself on vocals, the band includes Tim & Donna from Lunchbox/Birds of California/#1 Smash Hits on guitar and bass respectively, Stewar...

Re: The Proper Ornaments

Commercial spam alert: The Proper Ornaments album is out now on Fortuna Pop! in the UK and SLR in the US. You can read about it elsewhere (lots of reviews out there), but I wanted to quickly point out that we did a pretty red vinyl edition here in the US: http://www.slumberlandrecords.com/img/xlarge...

We'll be putting the album out in the US. Of course I'm biased, but I think it's really swell.

Weekend new album for pre-order

Thought you all might like to know... And… at last we’re taking pre-orders for the new Weekend album. The vinyl format is a double 12” cut at 45rpm for maximum sonic impact and comes in a really nice wide-spine jacket printed inside and out, with printed innersleeves and a fold-out poster insert.
