six-new-singles-by-hhbtm

The HHBTM team has sent me two lovely little packages in the past few months, the second of which arrived just last week. I figured it was high time to give them coverage… in list form! HHBTM, if you’re not familiar with the label, is short from Happy Happy Birthday To Me Records, and they’ve released several favorites over the years; bands like Patience Please, Fishboy, The Superions, Bunnygrunt, Casper And The Cookies, Velcro Stars and Eux Autres.

But there’s much more behind the music of Afternoon Naps that makes them one of the most promising pop bands around. Read More »Afternoon Naps: Parade [Album Review]
