Brilliant new compilation commemorating a decade of top quality pop music from respected California indie label Matinée Recordings. To celebrate the anniversary, the label invited 13 artists to record a new, 45-caliber A-side for its elite ‘Hit Parade’ collection, and the result is nothing less than spectacular! The collection features previously unreleased, exclusive recordings from popular Matinée artists The Guild League (Australia), Harper Lee (England), The Hermit Crabs (Scotland), Lovejoy (England), The Lucksmiths (Australia), Math and Physics Club (USA), The Pines (England), Slipslide (England), and Would-Be-Goods (England) plus Matinée debuts from new label signings Bubblegum Lemonade (Scotland), Clay Hips (Germany/Finland), The Electric Pop Group (Sweden), and Strawberry Whiplash (Scotland). Demonstrating the continuing strength of the label’s roster, this extraordinary collection serves as both an essential new release for devoted followers and a wonderful introduction for label dilettantes. A classic addition to the already esteemed Matinée discography!
