£5.00 / Sold Out
Just over a year ago Marshall Teller Records crammed 4 bands on to their first 7” release. Now to round off 2011 they have combined more of their favourite band all to be featured on a 4 way split 12” record.
To open the 12” is the glitter grunge of GROSS MAGIC. With their Teen Jamz EP being scooped up by Fat Possum within months of being on the web, we expect huge things from this band.
“It's an ultra-vivid dream of a version of perfect pop, Bolan's glam boogie recalled via Davy Henderson's Win and put through an Ariel Pink filter” The Guardian
THE HISTOTY OF APPLE PIE follows up next. Fresh off tours with The Drums and Male Bonding, THOAP look to keep the 90s guitar band era alive with the aid of woozy girl vocals. Their track TUG, a melange of melody and noise as pioneered by Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr and My Bloody Valentine.
“Creating a noise to trump the likes of Vivian Girls and Best Coast as a British mutation of their own game” NME
Flipping the record over you are welcomed by the hazy pop perfection Buired at Sea by ECHO LAKE. London quintet Echo Lake have made quiet the name for themselves in a very short period of time. February's debut EP - 'Young Silence' - sold out in days, the accompanying video by filmmaker Dan Nixon reached 100k views in a few weeks, print press caught up with the blogosphere and fell in love, and the band toured, with the similarly fast-rising 2:54, for the first time.
“Hypnotic and enveloping Galaxie 500-inspired “swoon-pop” Gorilla vs Bear
NOVELLA close the 12” with a new track, Santiago. Fairly new to the world NOVELLA already have tours set with the Dum Dum Girls and 2:54. With their debut single selling out super fast, this will be their second release and their track Santiago soothes you in with girl group harmonies, tinged with a dark undercurrent of jangled guitars.
