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?
You And I 02:51
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
How Long 02:33
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 Unaware 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
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

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.
