Erika Elizabeth played this monstrously hooked-filled 1992 charmer from Black Tambourine on her podcast recently and called it an “indie pop classic”. I was too busy consciously ignoring female-fronted C86/shoegaze-ish noise pop at the time to pay it any attention, but that makes discovering this stuff 20+ years later all the better.

This American band were something of a touchstone for the Slumberland generation to follow in their wake. I’m not sure the rep is fully earned, but then again, they aren’t all as amazing as this song is.
