Singles Going Single #113 - Sweetcream USA 7" (1995, Velvetone)

I'm presuming Sweetcream USA originated from California, most likely the L.A. area, as that's where their label, Velvetone was based. Velvetone Records was also responsible for the excellent Middle Class A Blueprint for Joy singles and live compilation, but I digress. Sweetcream also released an album shortly after this single called Close to Rock that I have yet to encounter. A quintet led by Celeste Moreno, Sweetcream's lengthy titled A-side approaches a variety of Teen Beat Records-era pop groups, while the flip "Crime as Virtue," bears a slight slowcore bent a la the Spinanes. These are both loose comparisons, so make of them what you will. Great sleeve on this one.

A. Seven Million Dollar Vaudeville Cane
B. Crime as Virtue
