Los Angeles-based (by way of Glasgow) Neverever defy the stereotype of the dowdy indiepop band – or at least, lead vocalist Jihae Meek does, donning a gold bodysuit that stood out more than a little among the sea of cardigans (and one Spongebob Squarepants skirt) in the audience at the final day/night of NYC Popfest 2010.  The band’s flouncy, fun sound melds mid-20th century pop with a hint of post-punk.  Their songs cover the usual topics – puppy love, break-ups and romantic obsessions – rendered in Meek’s dramatic vocal style.  Playing to an enthusiastic mid-day crowd, the band (and let’s face it, the gold bodysuit) kept the attention squarely front and center.  The band released their new album, Angelic Swells, yesterday, and like almost all Slumberland Records releases, we can attest that it is a treat.

I recorded this set in the same manner as The Secret History recording, with the DPA mics and a top-quality soundboard feed.  This recording emphasizes the soundboard feed a bit more to bring out the strength of the vocals.  Enjoy!
