We here at North Pole have always been big fans of Pop music. Michael Jackson in grade school, Madonna in junior high, Beastie Boys in High School, and so on and so forth. Our musical taste has gotten quite skewed along the way, thanks to punk, new wave, free jazz, hip hop, glitch, electronic, noise, and whatever else we could wrap our ears around, but the pop song has always held a special spot in our heart. We asked a bunch of bands on the label to contribute a song which they think is a "Pop" song from their band and this is what we ended up with. Artists from Berlin, Italy, Seattle, and Portland are on here giving us that, ooohhh and that aaahhhh, that we love so much. Enjoy

North Pole Records is proud to release another split 7" by Bob Corn, the non-stop Italian touring machine. This time he brings along his friend, Annie Lewandowski aka Powerdove.

Like A Book adds to Miss Massive Snowflake's expanding library of curious and clever progressive pop songs. The charismatic and playful band experiment with orchestral jazz, candy pop, and free-spirited psychedelic rock to create a unique musical vernacular. Miss Massive Snowflake marry traditional familiarities and edgy concepts with catchy energetic rock, and craft deceptively intricate songs. Like a Book blends angled radio hits, a jazz sensibililty, and boy band punk.
