Yeah, it's ace, isn't it?

Debut EP still available too (about 10 copies left, I think!).

Can't wait for my listening copy of their new LP to turn up (should be here next week!).

Some new releases (pre-orders) just gone up on www.oddboxrecords.com/shop

'Bunnyhood EP' by Falling and Laughing (ODD013). This should be out by the beginning of August and it comes in an amazing screen printed cardboard sleeve. It's delicious. The 4 songs on the EP see the Birmingham 'Chord Gazing Indiepoppers' in fine fettle. This EP is limited to 120 and it is sure to sell out in quick smart time. It's available to pre-order now for just £4 (plus P&P). Should be ready in time for Indietracks

'Lemonland' by The Humms (BOX004). The Humms are everything you ever loved about garage rock distilled into way too catchy songs about death, drugs and love! Their EP (Are You Dead?) was voted 2nd best of the year by the Sounds XP writers in 2009. 'Lemonland' is the bands debut LP. It's 18 songs (50 minutes!) of pure gold. Zeke Sayer has crafted a record that twists and moves and haunts and generally makes you smile large. Available to pre-order now for £8 (plus P&P). Released on 2nd August.

'The Last 24 Hours EP' by Liars Beware (ODD018). Liars Beware are rumbling guitar beast which nods to pop-punk. This is their debut release. They cover the Urinals classic 'Sex'. They are utterly wonderful. Released on August 16th. Available to pre-order now for £3 (plus P&P). Limited to 120 copies.

'The Whole Thing' by Hot Booth. (ODD016) Teenage mutant ninja Daniel (he of Pocketbooks, The Loves and One Fathom Down) has a solo project and this is it. It will upset you. It upset me. 4 lo-fi cassette ready recordings. Due imminently (about 10 days, we think). Available to pre-order now for just £2.99 (plus P&P). This is a cassingle. That's a cassette, for those too young to remember what a cassingle is. Limited to just 50 copies. Be quick, or be without.

And a couple recent releases:

'A Little More Suspicion in Our Fairytales Plz' by Ace Bushy Striptease (ODD012). This came out at the tail end of June. This 12 song EP clocks in at over 25 minutes. The band have just confirmed for Truck Festival on 24th July. For fans of Pavement, Art Brut, Bearsuit and Los Campesinos! so say The Music Fix. Available now for just £3 (plus P&P).

'One Happy Island' by One Happy Island (BOX003). The debut LP by Boston's finest has been picking up glowing reviews out in blog land and this record deserves all the plaudits that are being thrown it's way. "producing raw pop at its most upbeat and fun" says FensePOST, "Indie, twee, baroque...name it as you want, but One Happy Island sure got the pop" - Athens66. Available now for just £8 (plus P&P).

and the next ODDNET release is lined up for August, too:

And we've got one more release to shout about. This one is another two song free download 'single' by Space Age Thrills. Space Age Thrills is a bedroom project of Ben from London - who wanted to channel his love of the Ramones through a lo-fi fuzz pedal - but somehow the idea got over run with a whole host of horror and sci-fi imagery. And keyboards, too. It's ace and we love it. This will be available for FREE download on August 2nd.

Trev – remind me again what you think about remixes? Oh and what does that t-shirt of yours state about them on it?

Right. Trevbot reporting for duty.

Released this week is 'Lemonland' by The Humms. And it's picked up it's first reviews:

"Their rockabilly sound is quite refreshing, mixing garage with classic rock riffs and ultra cool melodies. It's time to get your hair up, your surfs outs and dig into the Humm sound" - Athens66

“Lemonland” is a potent mix of sleazy, chugging garage rock, swirling psychedelia, and moments of contemplative acoustic bliss. From the dirgey, shadowy stomp of “Buttermilk” to the supremely catchy, churning grooves of “Don’t think about death”, to the drugged out fifties balladry of the aptly titled “sleepy, sleepy”, to the stark, simple acoustic based “Talking to a Ghost”, “Lemonland” is a diverse and rewarding journey, that gets better each listen through.” Andrew Reiger of Elf Power


Odd Box Blurb wrote:
The Humms were formed in March of 2008 by Zeke Sayer with friend Tyler Glenn in Hartwell, GA. They recorded the first songs in Zeke’s studio which was (at the time) housed in a 1950’s mobile home using an extension cord for power and was self-proclaimed to be haunted by the previous owner of the property who died right outside the door. Two months later in May they added a drummer, John Bleech. They practiced in Zeke’s living room for five months, often playing for whoever happened to be around the house during parties on the weekends. In October, they played their first official show at Tasty World in Athens, GA.

In 2009, the band relocated to Athens, GA and gained a slim but sturdy following from playing the local clubs like Caledonia Lounge and the 40 Watt. In November directly after a show, Tyler and John left the band due to undisclosed reasons. Sayer moved back to his home studio in Shoal Creek, GA and began work on the first Humms record intitled “Lemonland”. After 5 months of work on the debut, the Humms saw a live format once again thanks to Kentucky native Jessica Miller on Bass Guitar and West Coast drummer “Ziggy Zag” of the band Pipsqueak.

Following up from their super limited EP 'Are You Dead?' (2009, Odd Box Records) which was voted #2 in the Sounds XP writers poll for 2009. The Humms return with their debut full length LP. Part-psychobilly, part-garage rock, even a hint of primeval Nashville, The Humms are an Athens, Georgia (US) trio who make loud music about murder, drugs, drunks, ghost, hippies, colours and of course…love. Their lysergic graveyard take on rock’n'roll is equally informed by rockabilly, Big Star and the Nuggets compilations.

Lemonland is 18 songs that are inspired by the great and good from the past whilst managing to sound as fresh as anything released in 2010. This is timeless rock n roll music that will bring goosebumps out on all those that still can get a thrill at sheer the beauty of rock n roll.

Press for their debut EP 'Are You Dead?':

"The Humms punch and brawl and get physically violent with Rock ‘n’ Roll. They might win" - A New Band A Day

"Sounds like it should be soundtracking the next Tarantino movie it’s such an exciting piece of music." - This Elegant Chaos

"A brilliant all killer no filler blast of garage pop, switching from the 60s sputnik rock of the title track to the Monkees do Nuggets cheery mayhem of Do the Graverobber!" - Sounds XP
