CD of the Day, 2/16/06: John Carrillo-Von Karma
John Carrillo is your classic Beatles-influenced power pop artist, and he's recently released his third album, Von Karma. I'd put Carrillo's sound somewhere between David Grahame and Michael Carpenter, with a bit of 10cc, Small Faces and maybe some English music hall thrown in. And Carrillo knows how to hire the help - legendary session bassist Carol Kaye (Pet Sounds, Phil Spector's Wall of Sound) backs him here. If these names thrown around sound like your kind of thing, Von Karma won't disappoint.
Here's an mp3 download from his site:
Help Me John, It's a Girl
The myspace four-pack is here, and 2-minute streams of the rest are available at the cdbaby page.
