The name is appropriate as it feels like summer.

Summer Camp reminds me of a lighter Human League.

This isn't super new, but it's new to me.

There are elements that remind me of The Jam.

There are worse things to be reminded of.

But what's most important, they cover Erasure.

So many of those nineties bits that you and I like so much.

Excellent stuff.

More Toomey

Do you like Tsunami? Do you like Grenadine? Do you like Simple Machines?

Then, like me, you will probably like this. It's really good.

Jenny Toomey - Antidote.

While I recognize the Revelation Mystery Box was a way for them to get some money for the piles of compact discs sitting around from all of their terrible signings throughout the 00s, I still participated for the vinyl.

I think the Down To Nothing seven inch was worth it. And I got an Elliott release in my box. But I must say I was disappointed not to get a "rarity."

Down To Nothing - Greetings From Richmond, Virginia. Revelation Records. New.

I'm not sure if dipping my toes into Talking Heads singles collecting is a good idea. Which means I will likely continue with it.

Primal Scream keeps churning them out. And I keep buying.

I still need to see them live. One of my few "heavy hitters" that I still haven't gotten around to seeing.

Primal Scream - More Light. New.

Another addition to my "buy up the entire Dischord catalog to the best of my ability" project.

When I was in high school I thought Lungfish was OK. They bored me a bit. A bit too "post-hardcore" I suppose. Really "post-hardcore." Well beyond Quicksand or Fugazi. For example.

Now that I've been buying up the Lungfish records I have a new appreciation for them. They're probably in my Dischord top five. I think this stuff is that good.

Lungfish - Talking Songs For Walking. Used.
