    LIFE1003 - Days
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    Some music seems not to have been made so much as it simply fell out of the sky, the product not of intensely scrutinized songwriting-by-committee and the chipped glamour of rehearsal rooms and recording studios, but some type of celestial will. If music is as serious as life to you, you know what this means, and you probably have in mind a handful of bands who you think have achieved it.

    These seven songs – the first that Days have committed to any sort of official artifact – come from years of anonymous toil and tinkering in the band's native , . But they don't sound as though they came from anywhere in particular, or were ever troubled by anything as common and earthbound as mistakes, arguments, second guesses and broken strings. Taken as a whole, it doesn't sound like a debut, either – although its air of innocence, of untainted wonder at the beauty of life…

    LIFE1002 - A SMILE AND A RIBBON
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Shelflife Records continues it's comeback with the next installment of it's combo 7-inch/CD collection: The Boy I Wish I Never Met by A Smile and a Ribbon.

    A Smile and a Ribbon is Rebecca Mehlman and Martin Lindqvist, a Swedish combo who was more-than-willing to take the unlucky fate of Rebecca's failed relationship and set it to music. The result is bubblegum pop most sanguine. But watch out, this sweet spoonful of sugar might give you a toothache if you're not careful. The Boy I Wish I Never Met is a pure P!O!P! album that draws influences from 1950's girl bands, 90's twee, and a whole lot of quirky personality. Its a not-so-innocent look at childhood fancy and lost love.

    13 bittersweet songs on CD and . A limited edition pressing of 300 copies.

    For fans of: Pipas, Talulah Gosh, Free Loan Investments, Confetti, Language of Flowers
