The big news among this morning's releases is Josh Rouse's Subtitulo. Although I didn't conceal my disappointment with the album relative to his three preceding brilliant releases, it still has its moments. Plus, this is an opportunity to check out all the songs as well. At a minimum, there are several tracks worth cherry-picking; "Quiet Town", "It Looks Like Love", "His Majesty Rides", "Giving it Up" and "Wonderful" would have made a great EP.
Also available is the new Essex Green release Cannibal Sea, which was featured on Not Lame recently.
One that I'm downloading is Big Silver's Afterlife. Although eMu is billing it as Americana, it has a real pop sensibility to it and would definitely fit into my somewhat loose definition of power pop. If this sounds intriguing to you, check out the eMu samples or their myspace page. I'm really digging "My Love Is In a Hurry".
