    RELEASE DATE : 27 September 2013
    The debut release for CONQUEST OF NOISE RECORDS and the debut release for THE COURTNEYS. Plenty of bands are mining the early '90s alt-rock explosions for sonic ideas, but few make plundering as much fun as the Courtneys. The Vancouver via Calgary trio (their rhythm section were part of Cowtown noiseniks Puberty) ooze oversized T-shirts and teen angst on their debut self-titled full-length. Repurposing Thurston Moore's buzzy guitar tone for the kind of thoughtful, pop-minded song craft we always knew he was capable of, singer Courtney Loove, bass player Sydney Koke and drummer Jen Twynn Payne blasted out these eight tracks in a mere three days. More a document of their heady early period than a curated album, not everything represents the Courtneys at their peak. However, there are enough hooks and excitement on tracks like "Manion" and the stunning "90210" to rocket this disc up to the top of your playlist. Think Sonic Youth, Blake Babies, Pavement and they would of fit right in on New Zealand's legendary label Flying Nun back in the day. It's in it's third pressing in Canada & has just been released in JAPAN & the USA.. The record will be supported by all formats as well as instore merch. First 125 copies come hand numbered and with a free poster.

    Includes unlimited streaming of THE COURTNEYS via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
