Cool stuff on eMusic.

Apologies for the extremely intermittent posting over the last 7-10 days, as I've been out of town over the past couple of weekends, and very busy at work. Things should start picking up again. While I was "away", there have been a few significant power pop releases added at eMusic.

Most notable is the brand new disc from The Primary 5, Go!. The band features Paul Quinn, who once drummed for Teenage Fanclub, and the TF influence is quite apparent on this disc as well as their 2005 debut effort, North Pole (also available on eMu.) There's also a jangly Byrds sound to TP5's work as well. A must-grab. Also check them out on myspace.

Jon Yeager, late of the Daybirds, put out a great EP in 2005 titled Truth & Volume, and followed that up with a late 2006 full-length titled Foi (that's French for "faith", by the way). Foi is now on eMu (as well as Truth & Volume), and it's great singer-songwriter pop, not unlike Pat Buchanan or more famously, Pete Yorn.

Finally, the Pugwash catalog continues its eMu rollout with the addition of Earworm, the predecessor to his great 2005 album Jollity.

Steve,

What a great site! I'm not even sure how I stumbled on to it but I've been digging deep over the past few days. I'll be at SXSW next week and am checking out a few bands based on your excellent views.

Where are you located?
