New Michael Carpenter music.

Anyone who reads this blog regularly knows that Michael Carpenter is held in high esteem in these parts, and he's about to unleash his latest, SOOP #2. SOOP stands for Songs of Other People, and #2 stands for, well, his second album of covers. Four tracks from the new one are available for the streaming at his myspace page.

Whereas SOOP #1 took on the legends (The Beatles, Dylan, Springsteen, Petty), SOOP #2 features covers of contemporary power pop artists like The Shazam, Myracle Brah, David Grahame, Chris von Sneidern, Bobby Sutliff, etc.

While it may be some time before SOOP #2 shows up on eMusic, MC's most recent studio release, 2004's Rolling Ball, can be found there and is recommended as well.
