Daisy Hill Puppy Farm - Spraycan 12'' (1989)



If it wasn't for the Indie MP3 blog I would have never heard of this Icelandic band. So I was thrilled to find this 12" EP at a flea market last year (crate digging, yes I know, but sometimes I just can't help it).

The a-side reminded me of early Telescopes songs while the b-side truly sounds like outtakes from the Jesus & Mary Chain 'Automatic' album! Nothing truly original but it's still a record worth owning, especially if you can find a cheap copy like I did.

Title: Spraycan

Label: Lakeland Records
Cat. Num.: LKND 009
Year: 1989

Harper Lee - Dry Land 7'' (1999)



A couple of weeks ago I was listening to Harper Lee's 'All Things Can Be Mended' album and I thought that I should post their first single released on Matinée Recordings. The band's bio will tell you that Keris Howard previously played in Brighter and that Laura Bridge played in Hood. The resulting music is actually not far from what Brighter sounded like.

Artist: Harper Lee
Title: Dry Land
Format: 7" single
Label: Matinée Recordings
Cat. Num.: #014
Year: 1999

Tracklist:

A: Dry Land
B: No Happy Ending
