Fear Of Men + Dunes + Dream Boys + Roses [ex-Abe Vigoda]

Part Time Punks

Fear of Men

FEAR OF MEN, born of an art school project, has turned into one of the most promising bands of 2013 in the UK (as declared loudly by most of the music papers over there). Drawing their inspiration from art and philosophy, Fear of Men deliberately juxtaposes iconic museum imagery and lyrical themes of loneliness and fragmentation with buoyant pop melodies. As Stereogum described: "“Fear Of Men’s swoony, sweet dream-pop is both euphoric and miserable, all at once.” So jangle and dream and don't be scared.

Dunes formed in 2009 after Mark, Stephanie, and Kate realized their desire to create weird pop music. They were inspired by underground and above-ground pop music from the 60's through the 90's. In 2010 they released a self-titled 12" EP through Mexican Summer and soon after a follow up 7" titled "Old Souls", released on Art Fag Recordings. Both releases quickly sold out during their first tour. The band has been playing, touring and recording in preparation for their first full-length album to be released in the winter on PPM.

Dream Boys

Independent music from the west coast of Scotland has always had a kinship with psychedelic pop music from the west coast of America. Orange Juice loved The Byrds, Teenage Fanclub wanted to be in Buffalo Springfield, the Pastels adored the Electric Prunes. Dream Boys are a modern day trans atlantic love affair realized. Consisting of 3 americans and 1 scotsman, their songs have the spirit of postcard records filtered through the rural haze of the paisley underground. Pure pop with nods to New Zealand’s Flying Nun records and an aura of psychedelia akin to the Church. Their songs float around the notion of time and space, love and heartbreak, the highs and lows with a range of emotion and introspection. One can’t imagine these songs coming from any other band or from any other time other than now. These songs are psychedelic in the truest sense, a californian sun rises on a Glasgow street, rain fall during an indian summer, Dream Boys’ music lies somewhere in between this musical dream, in love with pop music with a sincerity unmatched. For fans of The Church, R.E.M., Rain Parade, The Chills, The Clean, The Byrds, Belle and Sebastian, The La’s, Teenage Fanclub, Big Star, etc

ROSES is the brand new jangly dreampop project of Juan Velasqeuz from Abe Vigoda (& friends). For fans of (The Stone) Roses, mid-period Felt and other early creation catalogue jangly things...
