One of my favourite newish Melbourne groups Pop Singles recently sold out of their releases and made them available online via their Myspace. The pack includes their first ep, which you can see above and that includes the fantastic “I’ve Been Waiting”. With a female drummer, agile bass playing and a vocalist with a very McLennan-esque delivery it’s not a far stretch of the imagination to conjure up the Send Me a Lullaby era Go-Betweens, but one can also hear some influence from L.A. paisley underground (The Point, anyone?) and Flying Nun (like Straightjacket Fits). The zip (linked by the images) also includes a 7″ of “I Know Your Name” (on new label Vacant Valley) and a cassette ep. Several new releases are planned for next year!
