Boomkat Product Review:
This new Black Tambourine compilation on Slumberland makes their previous release, Complete Recordings seem less than aptly named: here you not only get the ten songs of that latter album, but also a further six, cultivated from two demo recordings, and more notably four brand new recordings made last summer especially for this compilation. Additionally, all the songs have been remastered and repackaged with brand new liner notes and never-before-seen band photos. This Slumberland group were originally active in the early nineties, contemporaries of Velocity Girl, with whom Black Tambourine shared a member (Archie Moore). In fact it seems everyone in the band had some other project on the go, most notably Mike Schulman who co-founded the Slumberland imprint. The band's sound stands up impressively by today's standards, fusing unabashed pop songwriting with the production and effects-wielding heavy-handedness of the shoegaze era. From the finely honed Byrds-like jangle of 'Can't Explain' to the echoing dream-pop textures of 'Black Car', there's an enormous wealth of good stuff to discover here.
