HELLO SUMMER Destination Dreamscape (2012)


You are listening to HELLO SUMMER, an all-girl pop rock/pop punk band from Paris, France.
HELLO SUMMER will be releasing their first EP, Sunrise Atlantic, on October 31st 2012, and they will be touring in France from October to early 2013 to promote it.
They mailed me yesterday and it is unusual of me to jump on that train so fast but I simply had to. HELLO SUMMER remind me of the wonderful unforgotten THE SUNDAYS and I actually had a lump in my throat when I first listened to them.
Merci bien, mesdames!!!!

THE BRIGHTS Full Colour Sound (2012) Full Album Stream

Sorry, something went wrong yesterday with the post.
One day delay...
This is the album in its entirety:
If it wasn't fall in my part of the earth I would call the album "summer pop", perfectly suitable for a beach party BUT, then again, if you live on the opposite site of the earth, this might actually be fitting!!!
So stop searching for the right music for your next party at Great Barrier Reef...
Jangle pop at its finest! And I really love the voice!!!
The difficult second album...? This one matured in a LEMON POP cask. Brilliant! One step further!!!
The opener "Don't Look Back" starts with a touch of The Lightning Seeds and of course some Pale Fountains (Trumpets) again.
"Against The Wall (Into The Wind)" - wonderful bitter sweet pop
"Grace Under Fire" - some Teenage Fanclub / Pearlfishers / Lloyd Cole meet The Smiths
Check them yourselves! It's worth every minute...
THE BRIGHTS are unique. Of course you will always get a glimpse of the bands they are influenced by but they are definitely their own kind.
Buy the album!!!!

THE BRIGHTS Our Teenage Years (2012)


Step one...:
Post the link to the download of "Our Teenage Years"...
Download here!

Recorded over the Spring of 2012 in rural Essex, the band collaborate once more with producer
Fraser Smith (Shed 7, Ian Brown)
, adding textures reminiscent of The Byrds, Shack and Teenage Fanclub, among others. Full Colour Sound is released on LemonpopRecords in the UK and Rimeout Recordings in Japan.

If you are a follower of THIS IS INDIE you will most likely already be a fan of THE BRIGHTS.
"Our Teenage Years" starts with a SMITHS-like guitar intro (which is of course meant as a compliment) and immediately finds its way to the typically BRIGHTS sound, very much characterized by David's unique voice. Very jangly, very catchy...

Support them!
Buy their stuff!!!

Remember: Full album stream link on THIS IS INDIE 15.Oct'12!
