Various Artists
Pop Greetings Vol. 1 California
Yesterday Girl Records

One of Sweden's finest pop labels, Yesterday girl records, has returned with a new compilation series. After the wonderful Pop Under the Surface Vol 1-3 Stefan Johansson now puts the focus on different states in the US. Seven different bands with one song each. Some of the bands figured on Pop Under the Surface but they are so good that you want to hear them over and over again.

The CD kicks of with the Shambles and they're setting the standard, wich becomes a problem after a few songs. Your expectations are high and maybe you get a little disappointed by Dragsterbarbie and Bat Country's contributions, but all of that is forgiven when you hear the last song, Rachel Gordon with Fun At Your House. This song alone makes you realize that real pop comes from California. So if your'e in to jingly summerpop with warm harmonies don't hesitate to buy this record. And you should probably hurry if you want it, it's limited to 500 copies. The series will be continued in the near future, keep your ears open...

Get in touch with: Yesterday Girl Records, Grusåsgränd 162, 4 tr, 121 30 Enskededalen, SWEDEN.
