One of my all-time favorite record labels Too Pure has announced a new singles club. Every month they'll be putting out a limited edition 7" of one of their new and/or favorite artists.
Boasting a roster of releases by PJ Harvey, Stereolab, Electrelane, The Organ, Mouse on Mars, Scout Niblett, Tracy & the Plastics, The Rogers Sisters, Young People, and so many more, Too Pure has already lined up their first few months of 7"s for the club.
October brings you Lone Lady. Comparisons to Kim Gordon and PJ Harvey are relevant and reveal her tendency for heavy guitar and a powerful voice. She has 3 mp3s available for download on her myspace.
November's 7" is Vera November (aka Verity Susman of Electrelane). I'm curious to hear Verity's work sans Electrelane. How much of that sound is hers or influenced by her? You can listen to 4 songs on myspace.
With major faith in their impecable taste, I subscribed last night. The subscription is nearly $75 american, but still less than buying 12 imports in the store, if you can find them.
Subscribe to the Too Pure Singles Club here (and find out about the launch party in London Sept 13th).
