Title: s/t

Country: USA
Price: $5.50
"A young British man named L. single handedly produced this dreamy, Sonic Flower Groovy fuzz-pop stomper, although it sounds like it could have been recorded at Gold Star in 1965 for release on Creation in 1985. Two tracks, one million hooks. Were really proud to be putting this out in anticipation of a 2010 Captured Tracks LP." - Captured Tracks

Title: 7th Date
Format: 7"
Label: Slumberland
Country: USA
Price: $4.00
"SPECTRALS is the creation of "L," a young lad from the North of England, where not having a baby and a criminal record by the age of 18 is seen as unusual. After playing in various basement punk bands, L combined his love of doo wop and girl-groups, adding a bit of Rat-Pack flair and a punk rock vibe, and came up with Spectrals. They have already released an excellent single for Captured Tracks and toured the UK with bands such as Girls, Real Estate and Desolation Wilderness. 7th Date is Spectrals first release for Slumberland. The A-side combines classic 50s songwriting with a lazy swing and drawling, Westerberg-ish vocals. Understated guitar twang snakes through tremelod strum, punctuated by tambourine shakes and tinkling bells. The flip "Dont Mind" is a gorgeous piece of slow-dance perfection, evoking scenes of beach bonfires and the end of summer. Theres a weepy, woozy vibe to Ls vocals, his sighing "ahh ahh" back-ups drifting skyward through the jangle riffs to the starry skies The balance of timeless songwriting and modern suss is pitch-perfect, and 7th Date shows Spectrals to be purveyors of smart, modern pop of the first order. All copies on colored vinyl." -Slumberland

Title: Spectrals Extended Play
Format: 12"
Label: Underwater Peoples
Country: USA
Price: $18.00
"LOUIS JONES, the musician behind SPECTRALS releases Spectrals Extended Play, the EP is a collection of new and previously unreleased songs. From the town of Heckmondwike, 10 miles southwest from Leeds, Louis is softly spoken with a shock of ginger hair. Brought up of a mixture of 60s & 70s soul, motown and doo-wop, Spectrals influences include Phil Spector (hence the name), Diana Ross & The Supremes, and The Isley Brothers alongside garage rock. Having previously released singles with Slumberland, Captured Tracks, Suplex Cassettes and Tough Love Records, the Spectrals Extended Play shows a progression in Louis music. Recorded completely on analog in a local studio, there is a notable difference in the production on the EP and his previous bedroom-esque recordings." -Underwater Peoples
