7-28-13 PART TIME PUNKS
WEEKEND + TENNIS SYSTEM
SURF CLUB + DJ KID FROSTBITE
WEEKEND are, without a doubt, one of Slumberland Records’ finest-ever signings. Their debut LP, Sports, with its buzzsaw mix of MBV/Mary Chain overdrive and Joy Division/Killing Joke darkness, topped most critics' Best Of lists for 2010 (including the likes of Pitchfork, Spin and Rolling Stone) and their Red EP did the same in 2011. This marks the band's first performance since the PTP Shoegaze Fest last summer, and will be the first live unveiling of tracks from their eagerly anticipat d and utterly mind-blowing 2nd LP (due out this week on Slumberland Records)...!

Sharing their namesake with a song by predecessor noise pop group The Lilys, TENNIS SYSTEM are keeping the legacies of Sonic Youth, My Bloody Valentine, and the Jesus and Mary Chain alive with their expansive, catchy-as-hell pop songs. Matty Taylor and Misha Bullock are masters of loud and dirty anthems, but rising above the noise that blankets them are Taylor's beautifully sung, dreamy lyrics inspired by both love and art, from the drawings of Egon Schiele to the writing of Aldous Huxley.Teenagers, the gr up's second LP, was released by Kill/Hurt in December of 2011.

SURF CLUB return to Lost Angeles celebrating the release of their new split 7" with Slumberland Records' Manatee. Their new sounds fuse the shoegaze dreamscape of MBV and Slowdive with Sarah Records' sounds like The Field Mice and Another Sunny Day. The band features former members of Craft Spells, and the very best in contemporary dreamgaze bands like Beach Fossils, Wild Nothing and Catwalk should also be invoked here!
