hey Liverpool punks and poppers! Getchoselves down to this:
Indiepop legends play Liverpool for the first time! The newly revitalized 'Trap has stronger links to the pop lineage of its founder members; Amelia Fletcher and Rob Pursey were in influential indiepop originals and John Peel favourites Talulah Gosh and Heavenly, who released records on such indiepop labels as Sarah Records, K and Stephen Pastel’s 53rd and 3rd. With two extra girl voices (from new guitarist Elizabeth Morris of Allo Darlin' and new drummer Katrina Dixon) the band now combines the harmonies, oohs, ahs and sha-la-las of classic girl-pop with the stripped down beats and dirty guitars of the Shop Assistants and The Vaselines. Following a prolonged hiatus, their third album Dansette Dansette will be released by Fortuna POP! and Slumberland in July 2010.
HILLARY AND THE DEMOCRATS
Chris, Jim, Paul and Steve make up HatD - local indie popsmiths with an ear for the biggest of hooks and the catchiest of melodies. Think Pulp, think Hefner, think awesome.
SHEL AND PANDA WATCH
Sweet, heartfelt and thoroughly ace country-folk-pop for fans of Alison Moorer and Jolie Holland.
