CD (EP) of the Day, 1/30/07: Warm In The Wake-Gold Dust Trail
Warm In The Wake's Gold Dust Trail EP isn't purely power pop, but it's a great example of a hybrid tuneful Americana and indie rock that should appeal to many power poppers who place melody in high regard. It's also on the Livewire Recordings label, the folks who brought us two great discs from last year, The Rewinds' self-titled debut, and The Comfies' Close To Me EP.
The best track here is the opener, "Tame Thoughts", which has an Autumn Defense meets Jayhawks sound to it (speaking of AD, they just put out a fine disc of their own). "Hearts vs Heads" is no slouch either, much in the same vein. "Golden Inhibition Destroyer", meanwhile, reminds me of Guster with a taste of Teenage Fanclub. And "Ironworkers" is pure Americana, something The Band wouldn't be ashamed to record. The good news: it was just added to eMusic (see link below).
