VIDEO: Golden Grrrls’ “Take Your Time”

Pop music, partly wholesome, partly brash: that may be what Golden Grrrls are going for on their Slumberland self-titled debut. At times it’s a bit lo-fi, other times its crystal clear but whatever way you interpret their sound, the power of their music is right there for all to hear, and you can listen to (as well as watch) “Take Your Time”.

The Scottish group just started their tour in Olympia, Washington tonight and will be traveling a bit for the remainder of March before they find themselves in New York City in early April:

SOME STUFFS: Veronica Falls prepare for fall tour

Slumberland Records is the home of Veronica Falls, a British band who has gained a healthy buzz that has lead to them heading into the studio to record their debut album. That album, a self-titled project, will be released on the aforementioned Slumberland label on September 20th. You’ll be able to buy a 7″ single on August 16th called “Bad Feeling”, with “Try Again” as the non-LP B-side.

Until then, they’ve made a video for “Come On Over”, and it’s a nice track that may bring to mind the vision of Lush, Velvet Underground, and Breeders:

SOME STUFFS: Brilliant Colors offer sonic hues for forthcoming album

When Brilliant Colors released their debut album two years ago, they are probably as faceless as the photo you see above. As people became witnesses to their sound, the faces started to develop a bit more, but there are still those who have not heard of them, or are uncertain if they should. Make it your mission to listen this summer, as the trio will be releasing their non-slump sophomore album, Again and Again, on Slumberland, due out on July 19th.

The ladies will be on the East Coast to tour so they can bring their music to fans there. While there will no doubt be shows in July and August and perhaps up through September, none have been announced as of yet so if these cities are anywhere near where you reside, make plans:
