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.


This WILDHONEY song, as well as 2/3rds of this Baltimore quintet’s debut single that recently came out, is a massive wall of pop-drenched shoegazing interstellar overdrive. That means I like it, quite a bit. I’m pretty sure you’ll be busting a nut over this one too,
