Album Notes
Hailing from New York City, Giftshop originated in the summer of 2007 as a collaboration between Meghan Taylor (lead vocalist for the Rochester-based band, Bee-Eater) and the former members of The Hi-Scores Matt Santoro (guitar), Damian Eckstein (bass) and Joel Basciani (drums). Their hybrid of indie and punk with pop hooks bring to mind powerful female fronted groups such as Joan Jett, Pat Benetar, Be Your Own Pet, The Devotchkas, and The Lunachicks. The foursome landed in Warren Street Studios with producer Ivan Evangelista who has produced tracks for artists such as Trent Reznor and Cyndi Lauper. They recorded Peach Girl, Purchase, Boomer and 800 Million.

Soon after the release of their record Giftshop was hailed as "Spunky pop" by The New York Times.

The 800 Million EP has been out of print since 2010...due to demand it has now been re-issued online with a track from their next EP, the fan favorite chant-a-long, "Me Not You"!
