DROP 48

Slipslide are one of several longtime indiepop groups that are still active but find their work impeded by babysitting. Graeme Elston and his friends have been working on a second album ever since 2003's magnificent The World Can Wait. Only a few songs have appeared, like the recording of the old Love Parade tune "Life" that was on a Matinée comp. A while ago a new song was put up on their MySpace, and maybe you've already got it but I thought a few more people would notice it if I featured it here. It's a fantastic song, more acoustic than most of the first album, with an as-gorgeous-as-ever vocal from Graeme. They played together with The Orchids in London last month and Graeme says they're hoping to manage a few more live dates this year.

hi... just thought you might like to know "you won't find it again" is a cover of an old go-betweens song from the 16 lovers lane sessions that never made it onto the album...
