“If your soul has no Sunday it becomes an orphan”, a wise woman once said.
Well, our soul filled up with Sundays thanks to Red Sleeping Beauty. We recently premiered their tune “Falling Out Of Love” from their new EP, called “Always On Your Side” (released June 22nd) on Sunday Records, an American indie label founded in 1990 on which the band released an EP back in 1995. It was the label’s first release in 15 years! Now here is a taster of the second release, Songs About Our Past Vol 3. It’s 13 tracks compilation taken from their small but perfectly formed back catalogue, including 3 unreleased songs and 2 remixes by Mark D (Fat Tulips). See the full tracklisting below. Here’s a wonderful taster for the LP which is released on the 29th of June (Friday).
“I Think I’m Falling” by Aberdeen – a winsome, wistful summer-tinged beauty, “She’s Not My “Friend” by The Pristines, a lo-fi, angst-ridden tale of broken friendship with an added drop of bitchiness (isn’t that the refrain from The Teardrop Explodes?), and “Wish Your Days Away” by The Proctors, more lo-fi, more winsome, more folk, just gorgeous. The three tracks here are a great representation of both the sounds and the quality on offer across the album. Welcome back Sunday Records, I think we love you!
