The Popguns - Still Waiting for the Winter EP

Last year The Popguns made a triumphant return to the scene with Pop Fiction (our review here), which was one of my top 30 albums of the year (list).  They are too kind to allow us to get through the summer without another edition of their wonderful guitar pop, and it arrives this week via Matinee Recordings.  The Still Waiting for the Winter EP combines the title track, which was one of the top songs on Pop Fiction, with three fresh offerings.  "Still Waiting for the Winter" is a classic Popguns tune.  The jangling guitars and dual female vocals tell a story of nights out in Brighton and reconciling the conflicting tugs of the past and present.  The following "BN3" is an acoustic romance tale.  "Why You Fell In Love With Me" is my favorite of the new songs, featuring an upbeat arrangement and lovely harmonies.  The wistful "Diane's Song" closes the EP with a perfectly crafted echo of '60s pop.

You'll love these tracks under the stars on the deck while the sun goes down, and long after the last sip of wine.

Still Waiting for the Winter EP is out on July 31, but is available for pre-order now.  It is offered in limited CD as well as digital formats.
