Various Artists - Searching For The Now vol 5 7"
NEW. SLUMBERLAND RECORDS. Slumberland's popular split single series returns with two new installments.
Searching For The Now 5 is an all-Swedish offering. On the A-side is a track from Gothenburg's Liechtenstein, a band that marries the angularity of post-punk groups like The Mo-Dettes with the pop appeal of Talulah Gosh or The Aislers Set. "This Must Be Heaven" is exclusive to this single and a superlative example of the ladies' love of upbeat, C86-style pop.
The B-side features fellow Gothenburg band The Faintest Ideas, whose chaotic pop tunes have blazed a singular path through the indie world since their formation as The Javelins in 2003. Influenced by punk rock, caffeine, and perhaps a lager or two, The Faintest Ideas haven't even a whiff of twee about them, their feedback-laced attack finding more in common with The Wedding Present, Bright Lights, and Boyracer than most indie pop bands.
The two songs on this single are otherwise unreleased and were recorded by Markus Goersch (Love Is All) and Wyatt Cusick (The Aislers Set).
