First off, an exciting new release from Kool Kat shows up immediately on eMu: Fooling April's In The Now. According to Kool Kat, "their well-produced, keyboard-led brand of pure, radio-friendly pop will immediately appeal to fans of The Argument, The 88, Ben Folds, Crowded House, and even Steely Dan!" If you prefer the disc, and want the exclusive 4-track bonus disc, get it from the Kat here.
Also, a couple of Rainbow Quartz releases make their eMusic bow. One of them is one readers of this blog will be quite familiar with, The Mellowmen's Tomorrow's Sound Today. We were all over this one last year when it was an import (it was#45 on the year-end list), and now it's gotten a domestic USA release through RQ. Don't pass this one up if you had up until now.
The other is the truly retro-sounding The Shake and their aptly titled disc, Trippin' The Whole Colorful World. This is vintage Rainbow Quartz, with that 60's/Nuggets/Psych/Garage sound that many of their bands are known for.
