Roundup time.

There haven't been too many new discs that have caught my fancy over the past few weeks, hence the relative lack of recent posting. So it's time to toss out a couple of discs that I've enjoyed over the last couple of months that I haven't gotten around to mentioning:

The Eisenhowers-Almost Half-Undressed. The Eisenhowers are a Scottish band who, as their bio states, are "clearly inspired by the likes of Elvis Costello, Aimee Mann, XTC and Crowded House". I can't quibble with that description, although the quirk factor is a bit high here. Interestingly, they have a track-by-track description of the album here. Four of the tracks can be downloaded at the myspace link below.

The Yayhoos-Put The Hammer Down. The Yayhoos are kind of a supergroup of sorts, featuring most notably Dan Baird (Georgia Satellites frontman) and Terry Anderson (he of the Olympic Ass-Kickin' Team). While not power pop in the classic sense, this is good-time rock'n'roll in the vein of Baird and Anderson's more notable projects. The rocked-up covers of "Love Train" and the B-52's "Roam" are worth the price of admission alone.

UPDATE: Thanks to reader Supernaut78 for noticing the Yayhoos on eMu.
