Indiecater is a new label in Dublin dedicated to releasing lost pop albums. They just re-released The Brilliant Trees album “Friday Night” (1996) as a digital-only download. The band had moderate success in Ireland and a top ten hit in the Irish charts. Sadly the rest of the world never took notice when this brand of “britpop” became a heavily over-saturated genre in the late 90s (Thousand Yard Stare anyone?). It’s great to see this release finally get the attention it deserves.
My favorite track on the album is “Don’t Believe The Right” which sounds like a mix of James (their finer 90s moments), Adorable, and maybe a more jangly Family Cat. The 58 second intro in this song also reminds me of something the Creation Record’s band Pacific would do (albeit a bit shorter). All and all well worth the 3,50 euro asking price for the album download. Special thanks to Kevin for writing and cluing me in to this release.
