Do you like Teenage Fanclub? Do you like Pavement? If you do, you’d better check out San Francisco’s The Lovebirds who have announced their debut 7″, which will be out via Empty Cellar Records. Founded by Thomas Rubenstein and Eli Wald of Melters Records, The Lovebirds make superb jangly power pop with grit. Take a listen via Soundcloud below to Filled With Hate from the 7″, which is about leaving Los Angeles for San Francisco.
The 7″ was recorded Summer 2016 by Peter Avery at Secret Studios, San Francisco CA. It was mixed by Glenn Donaldson and Edmund X, and mastered by Mikey Young. Insert Artwork by Sam Woo Staar and jacket Artwork by The Lovebirds.
