Release Date:08/26/2016;Notes:Limited vinyl LP pressing. Four great bands, two great labels and two continents meet on this stellar mini-LP. Frequent collaborators Slumberland Records and Fortuna POP! Team up to bring you Continental Drift, a smashing eight song sampler of some of the finest pop out there in 2016. Baltimore's Wildhoney have been making music together since 2011, forging a fresh sound from raw materials of shoegaze, punk and good old indiepop. 2015 saw the release of their debut LP and follow-up EP, and now we've snagged two top-quality exclusive tunes for this compilation. East London's Tigercats jangly, effervescent pop nods to their punk roots and spikes the pop punch with anthemic choruses and massive, crunching guitars. Their second album 'Mysteries' was a huge step forward for the band and the two new songs included here point to even greater things in the future. Philadelphia's Mercury Girls are one of the most talked about new bands in ages. Featuring members of Literature, Little Big League and Pet Milk, Mercury Girls have a gorgeous, layered sound that combines post-punk dynamics with soaring/jangling guitars, fantastic melodies and expertly-arranged tunes. Their recent single "Ariana" turned a lot of heads, and their two contributions contained herein should make us all quite excited for their in-progress debut album. Edinburgh, Scotland's The Spook School are surely the most *fun* band taking-on issues of gender and identity today, writing queer-pop anthems that are noisy, tuneful, sharply-observed and outrageously catchy. Citing influences as varied as T-Rex, C86 and Buzzcocks, they tell stories that are as multi-faceted and complex as modern life and sexuality itself, but also universal in their optimism. The title of their recent album 'Try To Be Hopeful' sums it up well, and their two songs here are up there with the band's finest.;Track List:1. Holly - Mercury Girls;2. Sometimes I Hide from Everybody - the Spook School;3. Horror Movie - Wildhoney;4. Sidney Street - Tigercats;5. Gone Home - the Spook School;6. Beverly - Mercury Girls;7. Rent Control - Tigercats;8. T L (Reprisal) - Wildhoney
