The Art Museums exploded onto the imaginary Pop Art scene in their minds back in 2010 with the widely acclaimed "Rough Frame" mini-LP on alleged elitist ex-Brooklyn label Woodsist. Here they trouble indie pop-classicist SLUMBERLAND label with three more concise tracks of rough jangle, cheap drum machines, joyously wrong harmonizing & neurotic romanticism. Comfortably occupying the spot where 60s pop suss meets first-wave post-punk DIY pop and contemporary bedroom experimentation, The Art Museums craft positively giddy tunes that make terms like lo-fi and indie-pop redundant and pointless; this is just great POP made by people who know and love it.

The Museums' Glenn D. & Josh A. have been at it in the bedroom for a little while now & came up with some anthems to send up the glory of pop. They are there for you when you're feeling confused, lonely or alienated & only a 45 RPM single can help. "Dancing With A Hole In Your Heart" is an ace sing-along tune that would be right at home on Dan Treacy's legendary Whaam! label, a succinct 1:30 of slashing, modish guitars and great vocal harmonies. "Imaginary Day" and "You Don't Want to Live Like That" are equally fab - catchy tunes filled with earnestly strummed guitars, thumping drum machines and cheap keyboards. Crucial, elemental pop thrills.
