California Snow Story "Some Other Places"
Shelflife is excited to present the return of California Snow Story with their new album Some Other Places, coming May 27 on digital format.

The new album features the same core members but also has guest vocals from occasional collaborator Melanie Whittle from the Hermit Crabs. Mel originally played drums and percussion for the band's live appearances. Additionally, vocalist Lupe Núñez-Fernández from Pipas / Amor De Diaz sings on the song "Outliers". Making the line up more international still, Kristoffer Solvang from Norwegian band The Loch Ness Mouse plays drums on two songs. This album (as with the other releases) was mastered by Jon Chaikin who has worked with bands such as The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Black Tamborine.  Read More

Dylan Mondegreen "Every Little Step"
Dylan Mondegreen returns with his fourth album Every Little Step coming April 8 on limited edition vinyl (with download), Compact Disc and digital formats.

Although the new album sounds unmistakably like Dylan Mondegreen, the approach in the studio was quite different this time around. "The idea was to do it fast, mostly live in the studio, and to avoid many of the usual studio tricks. It sounds like a contradiction, but I like to to think of this as my punk album. Only it's still pop music, recorded with nylon-stringed guitars, brilliant musicians and family-oriented lyrics," describes Børge.  Read More

Airiel "Cloudburst"

Introducing "Cloudburst," the new single from Airiel's upcoming album Molten Young Lovers, coming soon from Shelflife Records.

"Cloudburst" is the first single from Molten Young Lovers, the band's latest LP since 2007's The Battle of Sealand. Previously, the group released the Kid Games EP as well as the now sold out Winks & Kisses vinyl set. Unlike Kid Games, these songs were written and developed in live settings before recording them in the studio, calling to the strengths of each band member's creative technique. Utilizing a number of Chicago studios, producer Adam Stilson helped to shape the material into the classic Airiel that you know and love -- it's loud, it's pretty, and you can dance to it.

"Cloudburst" also includes a remix by Navigateur, who previously remixed "Firefly" for the Winks & Kisses vinyl.

Brideshead "Never Grow Up"
Shelflife presents the return of German pop heroes, Brideshead with their third album Never Grow Up, available on limited vinyl, CD and digital formats on September 18.

Never Grow Up is comprised of nine newly recorded songs, plus last year's single "The Mermaid" and the four gems from their "Comeback" 10" EP. The album is a dream soundtrack for a serene summer day where 90's Swedish pop and 80's jangle mingle in the air. Bask in a bath of jangly guitars, timeless melodies and gentle vocals by a band once called "the best English-vocal band currently around in Germany." They combine the finest moments from classic P!O!P! -- the summer of '82 (Orange Juice and The Pale Fountains), the class of '86 (Mighty Mighty, McCarthy, The Brilliant Corners, and The Bodines) and the freshness of 90s Swedish pop (Eggstone and The Cardigans). Layers of guitars, bass, drums, and trumpet with Martin's handsome vocals to tie it all together. This is surely the record of the summer!  Read More

Talking Bush "Ordinary Unusual"
Shelflife presents the debut EP Ordinary Unusual from St. Petersburg's Talking Bush. This EP serves as a four track teaser to the debut album coming out in 2016. Talking Bush is a new project from Nikita Bushmanov, who has been releasing music in various genres and under various pseudonyms over the years. As soon as we discovered these songs, we immediately wanted to work together. Talking Bush's sound can be best described as a mixture of synth-pop, dream-pop and post-punk, with rich choruses, super catchy leads, and Nikita's gentle vocals. His writing style really showcases his love for pure melodies, not unlike Shelflife cult-favorites Days. If you love these songs, get ready for his debut LP, which we can't wait to share with you.  Read More

The Treasures of Mexico "Holding Pattern"
Following the untimely demise of indie legends The Dentists in the late 90's, Mark Matthews and Bob Collins, key contributors and founder members, have wandered lonely as clouds through a variety of side projects and contributions to worthy musical causes. Both would seem incapable of not writing songs and every stream, every river of creative flow eventually finds its way to the musical sea. For Mark, this has been steady journey that culminates in this new release, Holding Pattern, effectively a solo effort but ably assisted by Mr Collins and the mesmeric , considered beats of Russ Baxter who incidentally, currently fills the drum stool for Secret Affair when he's not watching Chelsea.

The Treasures of Mexico breathe life into the batch of Marks songs you will hear on this new album. It's about what comes out of those speakers, and into your lives, no matter how it got there and you can always get by with more than a little help from your friends. Sounds like a great idea for a song there...  Read More

The EP is the follow up to the nearly sold out debut 7" "Honest / I Wish," which has earned a great deal of praise from guitar pop fans worldwide. We're happy to say this EP continues right where they left off. The four songs are filled with their classic pop goodness that will absolutely knock your socks off!

After two brilliant 7" singles the band are ready to unleash their debut album to the world. Needless to say, those who have been waiting patiently will be rewarded. Recorded at Soup Studios by David Holmes and Simon Trought (Allo Darlin, Comet Gain), the album continues right where the band left off: more chainsaw fuzz-drenched feedback, more guitar pop hooks, more reverb-soaked Matthew and Emma vocals, and more jumping off your f**king seats!  Read More

Pretty Sad "Pretty Sad EP"
Shelflife presents the debut EP from latest signing Pretty Sad. They're a band whose members are scattered all throughout Europe (Scotland, Denmark and the UK) and exchange music and song ideas with the help of Garageband and Dropbox. As soon as we heard these songs, we immediately wanted to release them as a 7" single, but due to the timeline challenges we're currently facing with vinyl production, we just couldn't justify the wait. So we instead decided to share these tracks digitally as a teaser to their full length album, to be released later in 2015. We hope you enjoy the songs as much as we do.  Read More

Shelflife presents the debut single from The Luxembourg Signal featuring "Distant Drive" b/w "Wishing Pool" available April 22nd on limited edition vinyl and digital formats.

The Luxembourg Signal, while being a brand new project, features members who have been playing together for years as part of the much adored Aberdeen (Sarah Records). Several years, several bands -- including most recently Fonda and Trembling Blue Stars -- and a few reunions later, Johnny Joyner, Beth Arzy and Brian Espinosa started The Luxembourg Signal with Betsy Moyer and Ginny Pitchford. They have created a spacier, noisier, and more mature sound that occasionally harkens back to their early 90s roots. Piecing together almost ten years of ideas and nabbing any recording time possible with Beth when visiting Los Angeles from the UK, their debut is finally here. Six minutes and 25 seconds of pure-pop bliss that is the perfect teaser to their upcoming full length coming in late summer 2014 on Shelflife.  Read More

SHIPPING RATE INCREASE
Sadly USPS have raised their first class international shipping rates today by 58% (!!) Shocking, I know... over double of what it was before. We apologize to all our loyal overseas customers as this impacts you the most. Perhaps it makes the most sense now to order in small batches or together with friends to split the shipping costs. For example, shipping a single 7" vs. two 7"s is the same rate now. We are also hoping to work more with your local shops / mail orders to provide cheaper options for ordering our stuff. Thanks!
