Indie pop in the United States is not dead quite just yet. Well, at least the lovers of indie pop aren’t. Sheflife, a long-time staple in the indie pop world has released and produced numerous albums from the likes of The Radio Dept, Language of Flowers, Brittle Stars, Le Coup, Shermans and so many others.
Not too long ago there seemed to be a “hiatus” for the label. But soon after there came their reemergence.
“To meet the challenge of making each release truly exceptional, Mazzucco and Bice have created a new format that artfully blends music and design. Each release will feature exclusive tracks in a limited edition, collectable package designed by various up-and-coming artists. Plans are in the works to feature this artwork in a gallery show marking every 10th release.
The collection is introduced with series of albums that include both a CD and a 7″ single housed in a beautiful gatefold sleeve. These instant collectables will have a limited press of 300 copies and will be sold exclusively at the label’s online store (www.shelflife.com) and a few select shops.”
One of these special collections will be for Swedish duo Kuryakin. Peter Gjorges and Johan Norberg create classic dreamy pop, the kind of sweet pop music that Shelflife has always been known for finding. Influenced by bands such as Free Design, The Sundays, Eggstone, Aztec Camera and a slew of 70s pop their upcoming release is chalk full songs that will help your upcoming summer blues breeze on by.
