This week brings happy news to indie pop fans: Slumberland Records intends to release a compilation of singles by The Springfields. The band was centered around Ric Menck and Paul Chastain, who also thrilled fans with projects such as Velvet Crush, Bag O' Shells and others.
The Springfields, whose members for these recordings also included Jeffrey Underhill, Eric Peterson, Wes Lachot, Buddy Judge and Michael Hausman, created jangling, melodic songs echoing the guitar pop of the '60s. The compilation, Singles 1986-1991, will include the band's five singles released via Sarah Records, Picture Book, Summershine, and Seminal Twang, as well as some additional, rare recordings. The album will be available in mid-November, but you can pre-order now and listen to track "Sunflower" below.
