Nuggets 290 - Jangle Pop!

Welcome back!

Above you will (hopefully) find a playable playlist. I am trying out different ways of presenting playlists so any feedback gratefully received. This jangly list has become a favourite of mine, so enjoy!

PS that’s Cassie Ramone in the photo (The Babies and Vivian Girls). Love your work Cassie.

Lace Curtains

Pale Lights

Sugar Gliders

Part Time

Surfer Blood

Looks like a young Brian Wilson.

Mazes

The Growlers

Sic Alps

Bitch Perfect

This ain’t the song in the mix (can’t find it online)

Land of Talk

Different song, but one of my favourites from a band I am very fond of. The band is on hiatus and singer was last seen working in a wholefood café. Sad.

Resonars

Can’t find this song online so this track is from a comp that has the most unlikely origins.

Here is a link to the comp so you can download it. The Bandcamp links aren’t working anymore.

Personally, the less the cats the better…

This is the whole story:
Burger guys found a kitten running under cars on the freeway during rush hour and they rescued her!!!
The next day they took the kitty to the vet and found out she had fallen or been thrown and she needed
surgery and pins in her pelvis and knee!!! It was super expensive so they asked all their friends to
contribute unreleased songs to benefit the little kitty gato and 50 bands came to the rescue!!! She
is the sweetest little kitten ever, there’s no way we could have let her die so they did THE KITTY COMP!!!
ALL PROCEEDS WENT TO RESCUING THE LITTLE KITTY FRIEND, ANY MONEY MADE AFTER THE $2,200 NEEDED TO FIX
THE KITTEN WENT TO THE AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR THE PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS!!!
500 cassettes pressed and numbered, sold out after few weeks!!
AS THE COMPILATION IS SOLD OUT, WE DECIDED TO UPLOAD THE TRACK ON OUR BANDCAMP!!
YOU CAN DOWNLOAD IT FOR FREE DONATION, AND THE MONEY WILL BE ADDED TO THE AMOUNT RAISED BY OUR BURGER BROTHERS !!

Finally, some of the above bands are on the Burger label. They have an extensive sampler, have a listen…

Nuggets 228 - Jangle Pop!

Holiday time. This mix has a VU, Flying Nun etc. vibe.

First, a Christmas clip from a B film I was watching other day, then Lawrence from Felt and Christopher Owens and Chet “JR” White of Girls talk about music.

There are no Felt tunes in this mix, but it works for me. The Michael Polnareff song that they refer to is below (it plays after the clip from the mix).

It’s ironic to hear Lawrence’s complaints about the travails of keeping band members on board. Shortly after this clip Owens pulled out of Girls. According to Wikipedia:

On July 1, 2012, Christopher Owens announced via his Twitter feed that he was leaving the band though he will continue to record music on his own.[23] Owens cited the band’s constantly shifting lineup as the reason for his departure, saying in an interview with Pitchfork Media: “[W]e were replacing members for every other tour; I didn’t feel like I had other people who were maturing alongside me. I counted out the amount of people that were in the band over the years. It was 21 — a giant amount of people. That’s feeling disappointed 21 times over.” The breaking point for Owens came when guitarist John Anderson, one of Owens’ closest friends, left the band.[24] Owens released his debut solo album Lysandre on January 15, 2013.[25] He followed this up with A New Testament in September 2014.

I have also included the trailer for Lawrence of Belgravia which I haven’t managed to see yet.
