Paisley Underground scenesters turned pop stars The Bangles — featuring original members Susanna Hoffs, Debbi Peterson and Vicki Peterson — returned to record racks this week with Sweetheart of the Sun, and Universal Music has provided us with three copies to award to lucky Slicing Up Eyeballs readers.
Recorded by Matthew Sweet, the 12-track Sweetheart of the Sun — which you can stream in its entirety at AOL Music — is the band’s first new album in eight years, and is said to meld the band’s folk-rock harmonies with Nuggets-inspired garage rock. In the album’s press material, Vicki Peterson says, “As we were finishing the record, we started to realize there was a unifying theme — paradise lost in Southern California, the perception juxtaposed with the reality of it.”
