from the press release:
The Essex Green's 'The Late Great Cassiopia' taken from The Long Goodbye. The Essex Green are loyal and proud residents of Brooklyn, New York. The group consists of present and former members of the erstwhile Vermont outfit, Guppyboy, and The Ladybug Transistor. They are also a band that once recorded an entire album under a completely different name - The Sixth Great Lake. It's a veritable musicologist's fantasy! A musical ménage a uno, Sasha Bell, Jeff Baron and Christopher Ziter have conspired to bring forth, with the accompaniment of various gifted friends, their
most original composition yet - The Long Goodbye. A shimmering jewel of a record, The Long Goodbye is the sort you will find yourself listening to over and over again, tuning in to the layers and layers of sonic viscera. And each time you will find something new. The Long Goodbye is also released on Low Transit Industries. Stay tuned
for an Australian tour in late 2003.
Smallgoods' 'Abraham Lincoln' taken from Smallgoods debut record Listen to the Radio released in late 2003. Smallgoods are a rock 'n' roll band and are proud of it! They possess a knowledge and a love of classic rock and pop from the Rolling Stones, Love, the Beatles and the Small Faces, but are also enthusiastic (almost to the point of reverence) about current day bands who show similar reference points like The Apples in Stereo, The Essex Green, Dressy Bessy, Of Montreal
and Supergrass. Smallgoods formed in Melbourne at the end of 1999. Originally Port Fairy and Warrnambool folk, the boys met at high school and have been musically entwined ever since. As their sound evolved into the perfect blend of gentle harmonies and psychedelic pop, Smallgoods have played with such illustrious bands as Treetops,
Midstate Orange, Snout, Even, the Icecream Hands and the Pictures. Buckle up 'cause you're in for a meandering ride along the Smallgoods psychedelic pop highway in the sunshine with the top down!
