The Bellybuttons - Nostalgia Factory EP
We think it is time for a little navel gazing. No! Pull your shirt back down, although we applaud your enthusiasm, if not your ab regime. We aren't talking about your navel, we are talking about Glasgow's The Bellybuttons. The four-piece has released a five song EP titled Nostalgia Factory which is as wonderful as it is (soon to be) rare. Glasgow's fine garage/fuzz label Fuzzkill is only offering 100 of these precious cassettes so if it isn't too late now, it will be soon. And even if you don't love cassettes, the purchase brings a digital download as well as streaming via the Bandcamp app, so you are covered in every direction.
What does it sound like? Perhaps like a joint effort of The Jesus and Mary Chain and Pavement. Check out the entire record below. If you only have time for one song, press play on the title track. You don't think you will be disappointed.
