Yet More Free Music! And Video! Summer Cats - 'TV Guide,' 'Lonely Planet'
File Under: Throwback Pop
Melbourne Australia's Summer Cats are keen students of POP in all of its flavors. From the motorik strum of Modern Lovers to the folky lilt of early Creation/Sarah label bands to the feedback-drenched noisy pop of the 00s, Summer Cats have got you covered. Their 2009 Slumberland album Songs For Tuesdays dazzled with its seemingly effortless song craft and sharp melodicism. Packed with proper tunes and confident vocals, it is one of the finest indiepop albums of recent memory.

Now Summer Cats are ready to release their first single since the album, and it's a corker. "Your Timetable" is a well-honed slice of noise-pop, full of fuzz guitar, romping organ and a chorus to die for. Augmented by new second guitarist Jeremy Cole (from excellent Melbourne band The Zebras), Summer Cats turn "Your Timetable" into a glorious racket of barely-contained guitar squall and crashing drums - a perfectly infectious two minute pop gem.
The Summer Cats "Timetable" single drops March 16, and their album "Songs for Tuesdays" will see a July 14 release.
