Slumberland Records


Slumberland's genesis came back in 1989 when members of Washington DC bands Velocity Girl and Big Jesus Trash Can founded it as a vehicle for disseminating their idiosyncratic pop vision. This was back in a time when there wasn't really any such thing as a "pop underground" in the U.S., especially in D.C., where punk ruled the roost. With Olympia's K Records, Slumberland took punk's DIY approach and applied it to pop music, inspiring a new generation of indie pop kids. In 1992, Michael Schulman took over full responsibility for Slumberland and moved it to Berkeley, California, where it has continued to quietly release some of the best underground pop music around.
