Umbrellas, The – S/T – New LP

Regular price $ 20.00 $ 0.00
The San Francisco bay area has long been an important outpost of the International Pop Underground, from the 90s heyday of The Aislers Set, #Poundsign# and The Fairways to the string of legendary popfests in the early 00s and more recently to a DIY pop resurgence with bands like The Mantles, Flowertown and The Reds, Pinks & Purples. Now we're very happy to welcome into this rich pop tradition The Umbrellas, who, after one well-received tape/single, are sure to dazzle with their new self-titled debut album. Classic indiepop influences abound, from The Byrds to Orange Juice, The Pastels, Comet Gain and Belle & Sebastian, along with a noticeable garage-pop/Paisley Underground flavor that is a hallmark of San Francisco's best bands. Lead-off single "She Buys Herself Flowers" introduces us to a band that's both intimately conversant with indiepop history but also unburdened by it, a group with the song-crafting chops and spirit to take familiar elements and create for themselves a fresh new sound. The album goes from strength to strength, studded with pop gems like "Near You," "Lonely" and "Pictures" -- tunes that sound like classics from the first listen, as timeless and elemental as all great pop. credits releases August 6, 2021 Matt Ferrara - vocals, guitar, keyboards Keith Frerichs- 12 string acoustic guitar, drums, vocals Morgan Stanley- vocals, guitar Nick Oka- bass Recorded at Cidra Studios by Matt Ferrara Mixed by Matt Ferrara Mastered by Tim Green at Louder Studios Cover photo by Keith Freirichs Flower photo by Morgan Stanley Art Layout by Morgan Stanley and Nick Oka Lettering by Caryn Oka
