We love to add to the number of bands and releases that form part of our “New Adventures In Pop” collection, which is dedicated to new groups, or groups with very few releases on the market. And we love to do this even more when it is, as is the case with this Single, for the US group CARBON POPPIES, a trio from Louisiana formed by Allison Bohl DeHart, Jonny Campos and Peter DeHart.

In addition to forming part of other musical projects (BRASS BED, LOST BAYOU RAMBLERS and KIND COUSIN), CARBON POPPIES self-released a 6-song, 12” vinyl EP in 2012 that was full of luminous pop leaning toward an sharp but precious sixties sound, with a touch of the garage of THE BATS or THE CLEAN, the taste for melodies of LOVIN’ SPOONFUL and the lysergic folk touch of WOODS. Indie-pop with class (and a Grammy, which was awarded to Jonny Campos, with his other group LOST BAYOU RAMBLERS) which is back on the current musical scene at the hand of Elefant Records with this “Rain On My Face”.

“Rain On My Face” is a special song, because it is a version of the British group SHAPE & SIZES, who released their only Single on July 1, 1966, the B side of which is the title track of this Single and the cover that opens the release. It’s a delicious example of psychedelic sixties pop with majestic choruses and evanescent reverb. Like THE CLIENTELE, but more agile and with brushstrokes of the sixties pop spirit of THE SCHOOL. “You And I”, adds a touch of electricity and reveals the ingredient that completes this magnificent formula, the taste for power-pop that adds an injection of necessary energy to the search for the perfect melody.

The B side is the matter at hand now. “How Long” is pure sped-up indie-pop with echoes of the US and Australia; something like if you crossed YO LA TENGO with THE HUMMINGBIRDS. Highly danceable, highly hummable, and with fantastic production work that gives them the necessary dose of personality to make us pay attention to the exactness of CARBON POPPIES. And with “I’ll Meet You There” we turn this hand into four of a kind. The luminosity of BEULAH. The pop sweetness of THE ESSEX GREEN. The bulls-eye of the choruses of THE MONKEES. And in the end that feeling that everything is sponsored by Brian Wilson.

This is a complete unmissable, energetic, release that is coming out as a 300-copy numbered-limited-edition black 7” vinyl. You have been warned.

Track Name: Rain On My Face
Don't believe what you see are tears in my eyes
I'm okay, you can go, just say goodbye
I'm losing you, but I'm not through
What you see, is just rain upon my face

Soon you'll meet other girls as you go your way
You'll forget how you met this girl today
Have a good time, I will be fine
What you see, is just rain upon my face

Sometimes you love
Sometimes you lose
It all depends
What boy you choose
That's how it goes
I lost love's race

What you see, is just rain upon my face

There he goes, here am I standing alone
All my love, gone to waste. I'm back on my own
I'll save my pride, don't have to hide
Let it go, that's just rain upon my face

These are tears, not just rain upon my face
Can't you see these are tears upon my face?
Track Name: You And I
Take a string
Unravel to my core
You might find
A level you adore

And you I would know

Tiny scenes
Of troubled winds will blow
But if you stop and think
Maybe they won't show

And you I would know
Track Name: How Long
How long, how long, how long
Could I need you?
How long?

How long, how long, how long
Would you be there?

I'd thought it be real sweet
If you'd love me just for me

But you would be fiction
And I would be stares
A graphic depiction
Who's not really there

How long, how long, how long
Could you be true?
How long?

How long, how long, how long
Would I beware?

I thought I could just wait
Till our stars fell into their fates
Track Name: I'll Meet You There
I can barely sleep right now
How me closer
Truth is not
Been what I'm told

I'll try cracking panes of glass
Keep it warmer
Birds might
Fly by my window

To think
A life with no vigil
To think
A life with no wake

I can't be your only one
Hold me closer
Truth is
I've let go my gun

I'll meet you there
