4:30 THE HAIRS (NYC)

http://www.ohmyrockness.com/images/bands/thehairs_380.jpg

Brooklyn’s the Hairs remind me of something you’d find on a Blue Tongue cassette in the mid ’90s. Or, to update the reference — Knight School-er Kevin Alvir’s brief home-recorded pop songs sound like a twee Wavves, a less punked-up but still snotty Cloud Nothings … or to go back again, an extremely polite Happy Flowers. The self-penned bio helps, too: “The Hairs is a pop band led by Kevin (words & gtr). Alex comes around and plays some bass sometimes. The Hairs is cool.” Alex being Alex Naidus of Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, another touchstone, but this stuff is sillier, as you’ll note before listening via playfully naive song titles like “Duh! x 12,” “Vikings, Pirates, & Dudes,” “Houseplant Song,” or this one, “Balding College Girls.” – Stereogum

5:15 KIDS ON A CRIME SPREE (CA)

Kids on a Crime Spree

“[NYC Popfest] also marks the NYC debut of Kids on a Crime Spree, the band from Mario Hernandez, formerly of Ciao Bella and From Bubblegum to Sky (who played Popfest in ’08). Kids’ debut album, We Love You So Bad, is out May 31 on Slumberland (a word I have typed more than “indiepop” in this post) and is up there with my favorite things Mario has done over the last 20 years. ’60s melodies meet bubblegum vocals in a smoky haze of feedback, distortion and handclaps. It’s real good.” – Bill Pearis

Download “Sweet Tooth” (MP3)

6:00 PERSIAN RUGS (CANADA)

Persian Rugs bring two known faces, Ian and Ali, who used to be in perhaps the best Canadian indiepop band of these times: The Airfields. This is their new project and they don’t disappoint! Joining them are Matt on drums and Kaye on vocals. Their shiny and luminous guitars over dreamy girl vocals recall the halcyon days of indiepop, of obscure acts like Girl of My Best Friend or Friends of the Family, or even some bright moments of Sarah Records. Bouncy and catchy, “Always All” is already a favorite single this year. Just pure pop bliss!! Can’t miss it.

Download “Always All” (MP3)

6:45 SILVER SWANS (CA)

Summer Fiction is new indie band from Philadelphia led by singer/songwriter Bill Ricchini. The songs on the self-titled debut record were written to flow into one another and feel of a certain whole piece of work, yet ranging stylistically from late 60s baroque pop to torch songs to folk rock ballads to old time waltzes to country duets. The album loosely follows a young girl’s coming of age but reads like the journal entries of the guys who fall for her throughout her life.  And yes, there are more than a few lyrical references to make-up, lipstick and mascara. We’ll let you interpret that for yourself.

Downlaod “Secrets” (MP3)

7:30 PROCEDURE CLUB (CT)

Procedure Club

The Procedure Club is a collaborative “bedroom-pop” project founded by Andrea and Polish emigré Adam Malec in New Haven, Connecticut in 2008. The two began recording as a natural progression from their boredom with living in poverty in New Haven, sharing musical tastes in shoegaze and pop bands of the 80s and 90s, such as Black Tambourine, and The Jesus and Mary Chain, as well as a common admiration for Baroque artists such as Purcell and Bach. Out of this god-forsaken alliance comes Procedure Club, in which Adam and Andrea have combined melodic song structures with heavily reverbed vocals, stuttering mechanical drum beats, dirty bass, synths, and alternately washed-out and jangly guitars.

Download “Feel Sorry For Me” (MP3)

8:15 PANDA RIOT (IL)

Brian Cook and Rebecca Scott formed Panda Riot while creating a soundtrack for a documentary about marine biology, they decided to form a band based on the sound inspired by the underwater and airplane shots in the documentary. They describe themselves as having a “blissful, swirl-pop, sing-along sonar aesthetic.”

Fan Modine is the work of artist Gordon Zacharias.

Gordon has also lent his talents to bluegrass outfit Jim and Jennie, the New Orleans duo Hercules, the Essex Green and Joe Pernice for his Big Tobacco effort.

Upon first arriving in New York, Gordon released “Slow Road to Tiny Empire” as a limited edition 12” vinyl album on his own Phovsho label, selling store to store to independents such as Other Music and Etherea. Soon after Rykodisc re-released “Slow Road to Tiny Empire” on compact disc worldwide – prompting Magnet to declare Gordon “an elliptical and underrated genius. ” CMJ concurred hailing “Slow Road” as “the sort of stuff from which pixie dust is made.”

“They hurt you everyday + Rainy Hearts EP”, was released in January on Swedish label Lavender Record and, is composed of 12 tiny adorable pop moments, designed in a more introspective, synthetic, pastoral and emotional manner, reminiscent of latest Bobby Wratten essays, wrapping you up instantly in a melancholic mood.

http://userserve-ak.last.fm/serve/500/449016/The+Specific+Heats.jpg

The Specific Heats began in 2004 as the solo project of Mat Patalano and was then fully actualized into a full band. Inspired by Mat’s love for 1960s surf, pop, garage & psych pop as well as 90s/2000s indie pop, their sound developed from a blend of energetic yet melancholy indie pop into the “missing link” between timid and meticulous indie pop & and wild, untamed garage rock that no one had ever asked for.

8:00 SODA SHOP (NYC)

Soda Shop is the merging of Drew Diver (Horse Shoes) and Maria Usbeck (Selebrities), a boy and a girl who met by fate at an Embassy concert at NYC Popfes. The Embassy, whom heavily influenced both Drew and Maria’s other acts, brought together a new duo. Though this time, leaving the drum machines and synthesizers behind for a hollow-body guitar and tambourine. Having an obsession with perfection and nostalgia. The simple, classic pop song structure, which houses reverberating melodies under dreamy vocals, remind oneself of better times, when Coca-Cola was only twenty-five cents, the only DJ was a jukebox and all you had to worry about was who you were taking to the prom. They will make their debut live performance at NYC Popfest 2011.

  9:30 THE FELT TIPS (UK)

The Felt Tips began to form in late 2005 when Miguel arrived in Glasgow from Spain hoping to start a band and replied to Andrew’s 18 month old ad for band members. Andrew’s childhood friend Neil couldn’t believe his ears and wanted in. The quartet was completed in 2008 with the arrival of Kevin ‘Hug’ Carroll on drums. The band played in and around Glasgow for a while and released 3 singles on indiepop labels Cloudberry and Weepop. More recently, the band released their Scottish Arts Council funded album, Living and Growing, on Plastilina Records. The Felt Tips play melodic indiepop songs about your life – like that time you fumbled around with a condom in your darkened bedroom while trying to keep the mood alive – well The Felt Tips were there watching you.

10:15 BETTY AND THE WEREWOLVES (UK)

Betty and the Werewolves whoop and howl through the night as their sweetly sung melodies collide with glitter-struck punk guitars. Taking inspiration from luminary lycanthropes Virginia Woolf and Grandma Wolf, they sing ditties about falling in love with David Cassidy and strange encounters on night buses, shouting all the while and scuffing up their party shoes.

GOLD-BEARS (GA)

Gold-Bears formed in 2010 when Jeremy Underwood recruited a few friends to play songs he’d stockpiled since the demise of his former band, Plastic Mastery (555 Recordings/Magic Marker Records). The band quickly released a smashing 7” on Magic Marker Records, recalling the immediacy and urgency of Boyracer or The Wedding Present melding with the pop sensibilities of Slumberland contemporaries like Summer Cats and The Pains of Being Pure at Heart. They expanded their sound a bit on their next release ( a 4-song 7” on Miami-based indie pop imprint Cloudberry Records) by stripping away some of the fuzz on one song and adding drone elements a la the Microphones to another while still maintaining their indie punk roots. The band will have new music coming soon through Slumberland Records.

Sea Lions recently were added to the roster of veteran pop label, Slumberland Records, and are currently recording they’re debut LP, which is set to be out by the end of the year.

DREAM DIARY (NYC)

New York City-based dream pop outfit Dream Diary formed in 2009 around the talents of Jacob Danish Sloan, Madison Farmer, and Alexander Iezzi. The Brooklyn trio’s melodic blend of retro shoegaze, twee pop, and indie rock owes as much to veteran romancers like the Smiths and the Pastels as it does more recent acts like the Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Frightened Rabbit. The band unleashed its first collection of breezy, self-described “cardigan rock,” You Are the Beat, in 2011 on Kanine Records.

BALÚN (NYC / PUERTO RICO)

Brought together by their love of simple melodies, 16mm films, cartoon doodles, and experimental pop music, Balún was formed in 2002 in San Juan, Puerto Rico by José Olivares and Angélica Negrón. Their sound is one of soft and sweet rhythmic sound collages- simple guitar riffs, subdued glitchy beats and sounds of bells, strings and accordion accompanied by Angelica’s child-like dreamy singing. Her singing is reminiscent of the type of quiet, low voiced song a child absent mindedly sings to herself while engrossed in drawing or making a princess’ crown out of field flowers. The product of the soundscapes created by Balún is one of nostalgia, or better yet, daydreaming. It’s music to listen to when you’ve realized you’ve wandered into an unfamiliar place but you don’t mind that you’re lost.

Balún will perform on Saturday, May 21st at Spike Hill.

FAN MODINE (NORTH CAROLINA)

Since the release of “Slow Road to Tiny Empire”, Fan Modine’s first album, in 1998, Gordon Zacharias has been known as an artist who mixes buoyant orchestral pop music with oftentimes more gloomy lyrics. This disconcerting combination has won him a cult following among fans of obscure rock bands, and of indie-pop artists in particular. With “Gratitude for the Shipper”, Fan Modine’s first album in six years, his music adds dimensions both lyrically and sonically, drawing inspiration from sources as diverse as French symbolist poet Stephane Mallarmé and Southern pop trailblazer Alex Chilton (“Waiting for Distant Light,” the album’s finale, is a tribute to the recently-deceased songwriter, singer and guitarist)

With expanded instrumentation and higher-fi recording, “Gratitude for the Shipper” sounds consistently bright, melodic and hook-happy. “It’s a struggle to think in terms of albums these days, but I still strive for that,” Zacharias says. “I wanted to make a tight, solid album that holds together like John Cale’s Paris 1919 or Procul Harum’s A Salty Dog do for me, although, I feel like we ended up with something quite different.”

Fan Modine will perform Sunday, May 22nd at The Rock Shop.
