Black Tambourine were one of the earliest Slumberland groups, consisting of members of Whorl and Velocity Girl, plus their pal
Pam Berry on vocals. Conceived as an explicitly pop band at a time when pop bands were pretty rare in America, Black

Though they only played a handful of gigs in their brief career, their two singles on Slumberland and Audrey’s Diary wielded a
large influence, and were key artifacts in the birth of US indie pop.
