Various Artists – Matinee Idols

Those purveyors of indiepop, Matinee Recordings, celebrate their 20th anniversary by releasing Matinee Idols a compilation featuring both new and established bands on their roster from the States, the UK, Europe and down under.

It’s full to the brim of indiepop songs whether guitar or synth driven. There are some great tracks here such as new signings Tinsel Heart with Talk, Last Leaves, who feature ex members of The Lucksmiths with Something Falls, Seabirds who contribute Independent Horses and Game Plan by The Hermit Crabs.

Mind you there is not a dull moment here and the highlight for me though is Postcard from Sweden’s The Electric Pop Group and their first new song in four years. It’s the sibling of one of their earlier songs My Only Inspiration and I have been unable to shake the sound of their chiming melodic guitars out of my head. Nor, to be honest, would I want to! Here is to another 20 years!

Available on CD or digital formats. Order from here.
