Summer Camp - Welcome to Condale (2011)

Swoon-pop duo Summer Camp – aka Elizabeth Sankey and Jeremy Warmsley – are finally ready to release their debut album, the Steve Mackey-produced Welcome to Condale. It's a record partly funded through donations via Pledge Music so for a tenner you can get a CD of demos plus the new album, or if you're feeling more extravagant you can pledge £100 for one of Elizabeth's sparkly jumpsuits. For £300 you can even let the band host your dream dinner party.

The band reached their target total in a week (but there are still some amazing things on offer – a batch of brownies, anyone?), which means the album will now be released via their own label Apricot Recording Company and Moshi Moshi on 31 October. But enough of the boring bit, the album is preceded by the excellent single Better Off Without You, another slice of lo-fi pop featuring bittersweet lyrics ("You're so annoying when you whine/ you're always wasting my time") encased within a capsule marked "Sent from 1984".
