One of our favorite blogs/labels/curators of radness, No Pain In Pop, recently sent over their excellent new compilation album, the aptly titled No Pain In Pop (due out April 6). The comp is meant to serve as an “introduction to all that No Pain In Pop is,” by highlighting various bands that are related to NPIP in some degree, including HEALTH, Nite Jewel, Abe Vigoda, Banjo or Freakout, Telepathe, and more. NPIP calls it “an archive of the last twelve months in painful, post-generic pop,” and it’s all pretty out-there and wonderful, but the track I can’t stop listening to is this dreamy, swirling, reverb/hiss-drowned number from London newcomers Trailer Trash Tracys:

The No Pain In Pop compliation is out April 6. Pre-order here. NPIP will also release a single from TTTs on May 18, so look for that.
