A place to discover the latest and greatest in power pop releases.
I hope to find mine in the mail box when I get home.
Spectacular album - might be one of the best of the year.If anyone else who reads this blog has heard "Alpacas Orgling" and can recommend any other bands besides the usual suspects (Bleu, Jellyfish, Checkpoint Charley, Candy Butchers, the Argument) that make music in this vein, it'd be greatly appreciated. I try a lot of new music, but it's rare that something comes along that sticks this immediately. Love it.
Well, they're not really power-pop in the sense of L.E.O., (think more Cheap Trick meets Elvis Costello) but I can never resist putting in a plug for one of my favorite bands - Getaway Car (http://www.drivethegetawaycar.com ). You can also check out some of Todd Wright's solo stuff (he's the lead singer/songwriter of Getaway Car) at http://www.orangepopsongs.com. Great stuff all around.
Larry,Give a listen to Tiny Volcano out of the Pacific Northwest. Their record came out 3 years ago, but it's really good and in a similiar vein.
Oh, and try The Scheme, out of Seattle (and formerly Boston), as well.Full disclosure alert: I play bass in The Scheme. :)
Thanks for the recommendations, Seattle! I'll check out your band ASAP. Would love to hear any other recommendations.
I have to add a ditto on this comment. The LEO record is outrageously great.
