Pink Tiger: Double Vinyl LP
Label: You've Changed Records
Release Date: 25th March
Don't get much more indie than Apollo Ghosts, mate, nods to Flying Nun Records, to K Records, to Postcard Records... that charming melancholy, that melody that's like a wallflower of a person you just want to get to know, a real comfort to hang around. The band are from Vancouver, have been making the kind of soft garage pop that this shopkeeper is a sucker for.
For those who dig: Belle and Sebastian, Flying Nun, K Records, The Reds, Pinks and Purples, the great good of Slumberland Records...
Pink Tiger is a 2-LP, 22-song epic return by Vancouver's DIY superheroes Apollo Ghosts.
LP 1, 'Pink', tracks 1-11, is an intimate home recorded acoustic based cycle that
grapples with loss, illness, death, and memory. LP 2, 'Tiger', tracks 12-22, is an exuberant indie-garage rock celebration of the persistence of friendship, music, and hope. Apollo Ghosts draw on a long history of independent and locally focused music making, from Flying Nun to K Records to their own Vancouver.
