The Proctors – Everlasting Light (Shelflife, 2013)

[SHELFLIFE] Everlasting Light is destined to become an absolute guitar pop classic. The album is coated in sunbathed jangly guitars, incredibly catchy choruses, and Gavin and Margaret’s lovely whispy boy-girl vocals. The band uses their 90s indie pop roots to their advantage while mixing in just enough 60s paisley-tinted sounds to create an album that would have fit at home in the early days of Sarah Records. Their Byrds-esque melodic guitar lines create a love affair with each listen. Special guest star Terry Bickers (The House of Love) contributed guitar to some tracks. The album was produced by The Proctors and Ian Catt (Saint Etienne, The Field Mice).

Everlasting Light coming September 24 on limited edition LP (with download code), CD and digital formats. The first 100 copies will be available on limited green vinyl, exclusively on shelflife.com.

For fans of: The Field Mice, early Primal Scream, Biff Bang Pow!, The Chills, The House Of Love, The Bodines

Sea Pinks – Dead Seas (2011)

A new project by Girls Names drummer Neil, Sea Pinks channels similar influences (80s indiepop, 60s garage, girl groups, etc) while substituting GNs pastel shades of grey for a sunnier disposition and more stripped down sound. Inspired by “sea glass, bleached grass and ghost guitars”, the eleven songs here (including a cheeky Felt cover) constitute a sonic kaleidoscope of shapes and colours that’ll make you want to shake along in time like a wet dog on a beach.
