Artist: ART MUSEUMS
Title: S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G./Feel Like Dreams
Format: 7"
Label: Dulc-i-Tone
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"The sleepy beauty of the Art Museums debut album Rough Frame (Woodist) appeared seemingly out of nowhere, but their apparent off-the-cuff casualness and unpretentious brilliance come as the logical bubbling up of years absorbing the arcane musical corners of the 60s, 70s, and 80s - where utopian folk visions, pop-art obsessions, giddy punk and new wave sheen all make perfect sense. The few who have seen The Art Museums have been lucky to hear bits of their backlog of as-yet-unreleased songs,and now the first treasures are finally seeing sunlight: Feel Like Dreams is a boyish reverie that soars along pre-prog Genesis-style keyboard chords above crisp drum machine cracks. Its all really unexpected and works like you wouldnt believe! And S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G? Well, without hyperbole, we can say that it is, to us, the most enjoyable one minute, forty-five seconds put on tape in a long, long time. The Style Council stripped of pomp and set to a thunderous low-end of rumbling electronic drums, S.H.O.P.P.I.N.G is disposable in all the right ways, the perfect mod-pop soundtrack to your no-longer-dull walk down the street. REALLY! Beautiful full-color, heavy-duty glossy glued sleeves. First pressing of 500." - Dulc-i-Tone.

Title: Dancing with a Hole in Your Heart
Format: 7
Label: Slumberland
Country: USA
Price: $4.00
"THE ART MUSEUMS exploded onto the imaginary Pop Art scene in their minds back in 2010 with the widely acclaimed Rough Frame LP on Woodsist. Comfortably occupying the spot where 60s pop suss meets first-wave post-punk DIY pop and contemporary bedroom experimentation, they craft positively giddy tunes that make terms like lo-fi and indie-pop redundant and pointless; this is just great pop made by people who know and love it. The Museums GLENN DONALDSON and JOSH ALPER have been at it in the bedroom for a little while now and are there for you when youre feeling confused, lonely or alienated and only a 45 RPM single can help. "Dancing With a Hole in Your Heart" is an ace sing-along tune that would be right at home on Dan Treacys legendary Whaam! label, a succinct 1:30 of slashing, modish guitars and great vocal harmonies. "Imaginary Day" and "You Dont Want to Live Like That" are equally fab-catchy tunes filled with earnestly strummed guitars, thumping drum machines and cheap keyboards. Crucial, elemental pop thrills." - Slumberland.

Title: Rough Frame
Format: CD
Label: Woodsist
Country: USA
Price: $11.00
"Cult new wave band THE ART MUSEUMS tell sordid tales of artists, lovers, and poseurs. Bay Area psych burnouts JOSH ALPER and GLENN DONALDSON converged in San Francisco in the summer of 09 to record Anglophile jams on a Tascam 388 tape machine (state of the art home-recording circa 85). Rough Frame is their debut LP for the Woodsist label. They would make a hi-fi studio record if they had the money, but reviewers would probably still say it was lo-fi. The Art Museums are into: art, poetry, Whaam! Records, and films about Mods. The Art Museums are not into: flared trousers, drip coffee, or dirty sneakers." - Woodsist.
