    Hey, the Moonbabies finally get a big US review!

    No secret around here that I really like the second album from Swedish popsters, the Moonbabies. It's titled The Orange Billboard and I pretty much fell in love with it from the first listen. Used the "Sun A.M." single from it on my last comp. Made some comments about it in a few posts around here that I later coalesced into a little mini-review at my site. But it seemed like it was just gonna be passed over by the national press here in the US since it's been out almost 6 months now without much in the way of buzz or chatter at the major review sites, at least that I've seen, except for a couple very nice reviews at less well-known sites like Delusions of Adequacy and Splendid. Until today, that is......

    I was just checking some of my favorite music sites and lo and behold it is one of today's reviews at PopMatters. Not the lead-off big picture review (in this case they went with the buzz-worthy new one from !!!), but a very nice review nonetheless and some good publicity for these underappreciated artists. Borderline shill, I know, but it is a fun album with stellar production work

    Good for them, they deserve it. While our opinions about their two CD's are probably flip-flopped we are both wise enough to realize that this is a band that deserves a little press. I was reading a review not too long ago and they mentioned, almost in passing that June And Novas sold very few copies. They used a figure, and I wish I could recall what it was! It wasn't more than a couple of thousand at most and I've got a nagging thought that it was actually much lower than that.

    Wonder how many CDs The Darkness has sold?

    Reason #1,786 why Rave Recs proves to be time well spent.

    Totally agree they deserve more attention

    Orange Billboard has turned out to be one of my recent favourites over the last few months - cheers Jim.

    And some nice reviews you got there on your website Dave. I really need to pick up that latest Twlight Singers album and you certainly piqued my interest with that Steve Wynn - Here Comes the Miracles. I don't think I've got anything by him on any of your comps so I'm off to see if I can find some samples...

    By the way did I spot somewhere earlier you were on the move again? I sent something to you a couple of days ago hopefully it will get there before you leave.
