Chime School - The Boy Who Ran The Paisley Hotel


This product is available on pre order with a limited discounted price.

The anticipated Chime School follow-up LP "The Boy Who Ran The Paisley Hotel" is as stellar as we could have hoped for - deeper, richer and evolved in every way. While still joyfully packed with janglepop gems.

Guided by San Francisco musician Andy Pastalaniec, Chime School pays homage to the formative jangle of The Byrds by way of early Primal Scream and The Springfields; the production and pop sensibility of Biff Bang Pow! and The Razorcuts; and the spirit of great singles labels like Creation, Postcard and Sarah - Although it would have fit with any of those labels, Chime School found a natural home with Bay Area indie stalwart Slumberland Records. 'Paisley Hotel' takes a turn toward the winsome melancholy of groups like East Village, The Go-Betweens, and The Loft, and represents a leap forward in production, composition and arrangement.
