FINALLY got the Gold-Bears LP in on vinyl, we're just too excited. And hey, how about a reissue LP from one of the best indiepop bands ever??
*** Go Sailor back on vinyl where they belong ***
Go Sailor were a great, short-lived band from the mid-90s who represent a key link in the US indie music chain. Featuring Rose Melberg (Tiger Trap, The Softies, Gaze, Brave Irene), Linton (Henry's Dress, The Aislers Set) and Paul Curran (Crimpshrine), they released three great singles and a few compilation tracks, and then went their separate ways. But what records they are! Basic and lovely in their song-writing, they're perfect snapshots of where indie-pop was during that last burst of pre-internet indie activity. Touching on time-honored themes friendship and love (lost and found), they resonate with honesty and purity of intention. While the themes might sound super-sensitive, the music is anything but garden-variety twee-pop.
