Free Loan Investments – The Last Dance

Magic Marker Records has made all of us Free Loan Investments fans incredibly happy by releasing their final EP “The Last Dance” on 7″. It’s pressed on lovely red vinyl and comes with a download code to get all four songs on the single (“Emanual’s Song,” “BBC,” “Bedroom Eyes,” & “Anyone Can Dance”), plus a bonus track called “14 Years” on mp3 format. Needless to say this is essential!

Listen to our favorite track “Anyone Can Dance” below:

We’ve stocked the single in the Shelflife shop, which you can order here for $4!

Drew from Horse Shoes has just launched a new indie pop fanzine called Wishful Thinking. He sent us a stack of the debut issue and we’re giving them out for free with every new Shelflife order starting today (while supplies last). You’ll find interviews with Pallers, Air France, Argyle Wishlist, Bonfire Kids, and… Shelflife :). Congrats to Drew for creating such a fantastic zine!

Autumn Parade – New EP

Thanks to my Shelflife blog post (here), John Hamlin from the (then) lost 90s UK band Autumn Parade has been in close contact. As I said in that first post, I’ve been a fan since hearing the two tracks “Julia Blue” and “White Sand” on the “Expo 1″ compilation in 1992. Well John has now released an EP available at iTunes for those very tracks, plus two other unreleased songs “Phased” and “Skylight” (also recorded in 1992). All are available to preview on the band’s myspace page and you can purchase them here!

And more good news, John says there’s another iTunes EP coming soon that will feature more tracks from the early 90s recording sessions (aka the “Indian Ocean” album that was never released). I haven’t heard any of these songs yet, but I can’t wait to.
