Summer Camp is gearing up for the release of their first LP, Welcome to Condale, and have released a zine of the same name. The album is somewhat of a tribute to 1980s teens growing up in the LA suburb, and the zine is a pretty impressive encapsulation of that vibe. Read it at The 405.
The band also has a new website with lots of background info on the album. It was designed by Kissinger Twins, who directed their wonderful “Better Off Without You” video.
Welcome to Condale will be released November 7th in the US (and October 31st everywhere else), and I’m already expecting to be wowed. And I was sure wowed by Elizabeth’s brownies! Damn.
The Moth & the Mirror are a new Scottish supergroup, comprised of: Stacey Sievwright from The Reindeer Section and Arab Strap (vocals/guitar), Gordon Skene from Frightened Rabbit (guitar/vocals), Louis Abbott from Admiral Fallow and Song of Return (guitar/vocals) Kevin McCarvel (bass), Iain Sandilands (percussion) and Peter Murch (drums). They’ve got debut album Honestly, This World also coming out November 7th via Olive Grove Records–or you can buy it on their Bandcamp now.
