WORKING "More Weight"
Shelflife presents the debut EP from Rhode Island's WORKING entitled More Weight released July 22 in digital-only format.

Described by Decoder Magazine as "sullen jangle-rock," WORKING are a new project featuring John Kolodij, who has released some fine shimmering psychedelia under the name High Aura'd, his wife Catherine, who you may remember as lead vocalist in the brilliant indiepop group The Best Wishes, and their close friends Matthew Derby and Mary-Kim Arnold. They play some of the loveliest 90s inspired noise pop we've heard in a long, long time and fans of Black Tambourine, Velocity Girl, Centro-matic and Joanna Gruesome should find some comfort here. But there is a cosmic American drift in these songs that gives WORKING its texture and heft. They have a classic elegance about how they craft songs and it's clear they are confortable in their skin.  Read More

Gingerlys "Jumprope"
Order release and receive an instant MP3 download!

Shelflife presents the debut 7" Jumprope EP from NYC's newest pop sweethearts Gingerlys out on July 8 on limited edition vinyl and digital formats.

Described as "pure ear candy," the EP starts off with "Jumprope" which quickly introduces what Gingerlys are all about -- songs filled with fuzzy guitars, dreampop melodies, guitar hooks galore and Maria's soft sultry vocals. The second track "Summer Cramps" switches from dreamy to jangly, a summer pop anthem that is insanely catchy. The B-side opens with the head-rush breakneck speed of "Better Hearts" and closes with the delightful Felt-ish guitars of "Set You Off".  Read More

The Luxembourg Signal "Distant Drive"
Order release and receive an instant MP3 download!

Shelflife presents the debut single from The Luxembourg Signal featuring "Distant Drive" b/w "Wishing Pool" available April 22nd on limited edition vinyl and digital formats.

The Luxembourg Signal, while being a brand new project, features members who have been playing together for years as part of the much adored Aberdeen (Sarah Records). Several years, several bands -- including most recently Fonda and Trembling Blue Stars -- and a few reunions later, Johnny Joyner, Beth Arzy and Brian Espinosa started The Luxembourg Signal with Betsy Moyer and Ginny Pitchford. They have created a spacier, noisier, and more mature sound that occasionally harkens back to their early 90s roots. Piecing together almost ten years of ideas and nabbing any recording time possible with Beth when visiting Los Angeles from the UK, their debut is finally here. Six minutes and 25 seconds of pure-pop bliss that is the perfect teaser to their upcoming full length coming in late summer 2014 on Shelflife.  Read More

Flyying Colours "Flyying Colours EP"

Shelflife presents the US release of Melbourne shoegaze/psych outfit Flyying Colours self-titled 5-track EP available March 25 on limited 12" vinyl. True to their name, Flyying Colours unashamedly display their influences in this debut: tone bending MBV/Swervedriver guitars, Ride's bass hooks and the familiar soft hush of early 90s male/female vocals. Add to that their own edgy, refreshing pop-mindedness and it makes for five completely brilliant tracks.  Read More

When Nalda Became Punk "Indiepop or Whatever!"
Order release and receive an instant MP3 download!

Shelflife presents the new four track EP from Spain's When Nalda Became Punk entitled Indiepop or whatever! coming March 4th. The title of the EP is an attempt to acknowledge all the musical influences in the band. Although it's obvious that indiepop is one of their main ones, they also take inspiration from 90's britpop, shoegaze, punk-pop, synthpop and even grunge. Elena explains "when sometimes people ask what kind of music we make, the answer is indiepop... or whatever you may call it." She later wrote a song with that name and it seemed to fit perfectly as the title of the EP.  Read More

The Garlands "The Garlands"
LP repress now on limited milky clear vinyl

The Garlands make their Shelflife debut with the new brand new self-titled album out November 27th. The result is pure, breathtaking indie pop perfection from beginning to end! Jangly guitar hooks, head-bobbing rhythms, lovely vocal harmonies -- it's all here! A melting pot of late 80s UK female-fronted guitar pop, celebrating their influences without ever sounding trivial or unoriginal. They are truly masters of the two minute pop song, with only one track ever going past the three minute mark. This has allowed for a special album pressing entirely at 45 rpm.  Read More

Picnic have become masters at blending the ethereal and indie pop worlds, surrounding us throughout the album with spacious textures and glimmering soundscapes. The stunning beauty of their arrangements are filled with immaculate dream pop guitars and Marju's mesmerizing vocals.

The Fireworks "The Fireworks EP"
Order release and receive an instant MP3 download!

Shelflife presents the debut four-track 7" EP from The Fireworks coming March 19th 2013. Simple catchy songs with blistering qualls of feedback, sharp chiming guitars, rambunctious drums and bass, and Matthew and Emma's perfectly matched vocals. They feel like a group that was always meant to be, holding the sonic qualities of the past, but very much in the now and completely true to themselves. A beacon of hope in the saturated sea of "copycat" noise pop groups. They uphold the values from those special records from 1984-86, when bands like The Jesus and Mary Chain, The Shop Assistants, My Bloody Valentine, and Razorcuts changed our lives forever. Now The Fireworks are ready to change yours!  Read More

Goodly Thousands "Honest"
Order release and receive an instant MP3 download!

Shelflife presents the debut double A-side 7" "Honest" b/w "I Wish" from Dublin, Ireland's Goodly Thousands. The band started in 2010 in the small town of Dundrum. Colm writes all the songs, plays guitar and sings, Aaron plays drums and Darren plays bass. The band draws inspiration from many of the beloved UK guitar pop groups of the mid-1980s. In fact, Colm reminds us of young Julian Henry (The Hit Parade) on guitar mixed with Ken Sweeney (Brian) on vocals. His songs are like lost Primal Scream demos from 1983. We know this is maybe the biggest compliment known to man, but we promise this record lives up to it! The jangly guitar sound so famously crafted back then is once again reborn 30 years later. The band's raw and intimate production on these recordings also show the pure genuineness of their sound (and heart). We just can't help to go nuts over this stuff and we can't wait to hear what's coming up next from them!  Read More

Hailing from the shores of Merseyside, By The Sea are one of the most exciting new UK bands around at the moment. After a run of sold-out 7" singles overseas, the band are set to release their debut single for North America on Shelflife.

The new double A-side single features tracks "Dream Waters" b/w "Eveline" which were recorded and produced with close friend Bill Ryder-Jones (The Coral, Double Six Records) in various bedrooms, garages and churches. "Dream Waters" boasts their hallmark guitar sound and reverb-soaked melodies, while "Eveline" shimmers and shines showing off the band's ability to write perfect pop songs. Two tracks that evoke the soul of seminal 80s indie bands that helped inspire them.  Read More

Order release and receive an instant MP3 download!

Dylan Mondegreen is a pseudonym for Norwegian recording artist Børge Sildnes. Børge has been releasing quality pop music since the mid-2000s and has acquired a very dedicated fan-base worldwide. The entire album was produced and mixed by the legendary Ian Catt, best-known for his work with Saint Etienne, The Field Mice and other bands on the Sarah Records label. The result is undoubtedly Børge's most gorgeous recordings to date! Symphonic and lush, the album is filled with string ensembles, woodwinds and percussion, delightly showing why he's been compared to the likes of Blueboy, Jens Lekman and Sufjan Stevens. The first single "It Takes Two" even features real steel drums as Børge is not afraid to use a wide range of instrumentation.  Read More

Bringing in many of the elements that formed Airiel's foundation, Andrew Marrah and Chase Johnson's drum machines and synths make a larger presence. This produced a new sound that keeps the elements that make Airiel great; catchy melodies, lush guitars, danceable rhythms and lasting dreaminess. "Kid Games" also marks the return of guest vocalist Stella Tran, whose first appearance was on "Firefly" from the Melted EP of the Winks & Kisses box set.

Burning Hearts second full-length album, Extinctions, is out now! All nine songs were written and recorded in the Ostrobothnian environment, which has proven to be fertile creative ground for Jessika and Henry. While Aboa Sleeping was a collection of early songs that were not intended to end up on an album, Extinctions was written as a consequence of many tragic stories that in a way or another touched the band. Quite a few of the songs are dedicated to people or creatures that no longer exist. Even if human tragedies inspired the writing, and death is present in nearly all the songs, the sound remains vivid and full of hope.  Read More
