Cosines Hey Sailor Boy!Fika Recordings

Just when I was thinking indiepop is getting way too tired and cliched, and hardly worth shaking a threadbare teddy at, a record comes along that makes me fair choke on my pop. That record is the wave riding colossus that is Hey Sailor Boy. Produced by a veritable fey supergroup (you know the culprits; various London offcuts from the School, the Loves, etc), Cosines, it sets off as a northern soul stomper before adding lovely strings and flirty lyrics. And they have produced not one, but two, catchy efforts, as b-side The Answer is also pretty darn good, albeit more in a Stereolab synth krautrock styleeeee.
Cost is ₤5 GBP - shipping out on or around 20 May 2013 as part of a limited edition of 300.
