Following on the heels of their well-received debut album on the Slumberland label, Washington D.C.-based indiepop standard bearers THE SATURDAY PEOPLE are back with a smashing 7-track mini-album released by new underground force Foxyboy Records. Listeners who connected with the debut's colorful pairing of 60s pop melodies - think early Beatles, Byrds, Zombies, Kinks - with the insouciant jangle of 80s treasures such as Postcard-era Orange Juice and Aztec Camera and early Creation-label combos The Loft and Jasmine Minks will find much to love on the new seven-tracker, even as it incorporates new-found subtleties and an increasingly nuanced approach to arrangements and overall sonic texture. The Saturday People lineage is almost comical in it's circuitous route through the annals of 1990s indiepop. The band - Terry Banks (vocals/guitar), Greg Pavlovcak (vocals/guitar), Archie Moore (bass/vocals), Ara Hacopian (keyboards) and Dan Searing (drums) - includes former (and current) members of Velocity Girl, Tree Fort Angst, The Ropers, Glo-Worm, Boyracer, Black Tambourine, Lu, St. Christopher, Lilys, The Castaway Stones, The Still, Heartworms and Whorl to... um... name just a few. But a litany of indiepop band names - no matter how special they may be to appreciators of the genre - is not what makes the new Saturday People mini-LP notable, as any real pop fan call tell you... What matters is melody, energy, intelligence and songs (remember them?) that go in one ear - and then, pleasingly, stay there and make themselves at home. Warhol said pop should be disposable. The Saturday People respectfully disagree.
