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.
