(Jigsaw Records, PZL147)
after a few sought-after EPs released on micro-labels in their home country and a couple more compilation appearances on Cloudberry and Quince, at long last, we have the debut album from Indonesia's Sharesprings. And though it only clocks in at around 20 minutes, this mini-album was well worth the wait! The band excels in pure and dreamy indiepop in the style of early Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, the Drums and Beach Fossils, but they aren't afraid to turn up the noise in songs like the Talulah Gosh-esque "Elza, I'd Write You A Song". The songs have roughly equal parts boy and girl vocals, and they even sometimes sing together, for a beautiful effect. Yes, this is indeed the perfect POP! album you didn't know you were waiting for... until now!
Not limited. All songs written by Sharesprings. Available digitally on Bandcamp.
