It's Happening Now
Price: $14.00
Artist: Bill Lloyd
Description: Brand new, acoustic-oriented release from one of the best in the biz! “The perfect fall-into-winter record that bathes listeners in the warm glow of tremendous, acoustic-based songs evoking mid-’60s folk-pop aesthetics. Lovely melodies, nimble acoustic guitar playing, and emotive vocals combine for an affective experience from a contemporary music master. This is Bill Lloyd’s finest hour, by far.” - Alan Haber/Pure Pop Radio “A refreshing collection of quieter, well-crafted compositions, long on melody and wry observations.” - Americana Music News “Whether toiling in the country trenches with Foster & Lloyd or flying solo with his own pop-oriented material, Bill Lloyd has always been all about the song. Nowhere is this more apparent than on this 20-track smorgasbord of acoustic-oriented, low-key delights that showcases Lloyd's ample melodic gifts as well as his way with words.” - John Borack GREAT!! ... read more »

Hang Ups
Price: $11.00
Artist: Brian Jay Cline
Description: He teased us by saying that “Writer’s Block” was going to be his last-ever release, but jangle-meister Brian Jay Cline is back with his second(!) full-length release of 2017. And, he seems to suddenly have become even further “un-blocked” by unleashing a slew of non-album digital singles since “Hang Ups”! “I like to think I keep on top of the latest in new power pop, religiously checking the daily releases from CD Baby, Bandcamp and elsewhere, and poring over lists of what's added to Spotify, etc. But I just haven't been able to keep up with Brian Jay Cline this year. Having already released ‘Writer's Block’ earlier this year, he has put out a series of singles this year along with the new full-length. Since ‘Writer's Block’ kicked this all off, I'm viewing that title as either being extremely ironic or something Cline has overcome in a big way. On ‘Hang Ups’, Cline's rootsy pop a la Marshall Crenshaw, Walter Clevenger and Bill Lloyd is in fine form again. The record plugs in to the stresses of life in 2017, with ‘Monday’ and ‘21st Century Nervous Breakdown’ appreciating how hard it is to just get out of bed and start the week these days. But the real highlight here is ‘Wall (You're Gonna Pay for It)’, which takes one of the 2016 election's hoariest cliches and applies it as a metaphor for dealing with an ex. It's not only one of Cline's most clever lyrics, it's one of his catchiest tunes in a deep catalog of catchy. Other standouts include the country shuffle of ‘Ride’ and the upbeat-despite-its-title ‘Low Winter Sun’.” – Absolutepowerpop.com EXCELLENT!! ... read more »

The Road To Glasgow
Price: $14.50
Artist: Celsi, Bragg & Maitland
Description: American Pop/Americana artists Anny Celsi and Nelson Bragg team up with Dublin’s Duncan Maitland to form a high-energy, high-flying trio that’s all about Brill Building hooks, Byrds-y harmonies, and Beatle-esque psychedelia!  Celsi’s style has been described as “beatnik cool,” “pop-noir,” and “slightlydelic pop jangle,” with comparisons to Suzanne Vega, Jackie DeShannon and Chrissie Hynde.  Her CD “Tangle-Free World” was described by one reviewer as “… Byrdsian jangle and exquisite psych-pop harmonies.”  Between touring and recording as percussionist/vocalist with The Brian Wilson Band, Bragg has also found time to release two critically acclaimed albums of his own, most notably ‘"Day Into Night".’  Maitland has plied his 12-string with British pop heroes Picturehouse, Pugwash and XTC. His “Lullabies for the 21st Century” album has been hailed as “a trip through the acid-tinged English foothills of rainy day sunshine pop.”  “It is fitting with 2017 marking the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love that these three artists would team up to release an album that somehow captures that magical time when vocal harmonies, sweet melodies, memorable songs and psychedelic overtones gave birth to the L.A.'s Byrds and London's Fairport Convention. The melodic power pop ‘Heavenly Day,’ lovely folk nugget ‘Own Sweet Time’ (one of three live recordings on the disc), a driving take on Paul Kelly's ‘To Her Door’, and a lush Byrds-styled take on Peter Holsapple's ‘Hollywood Waltz’ capture the honest and sweet sound of this record.” – Robert Kinsler EXCELLENT!! ... read more »

Limitations of Source Tape
Price: $13.00
Artist: Chris Church
Description: It’s certainly been a while since we last heard from Mr. Church, but he’s back, and in fine form, on this, his Spyderpop Records debut! As evidenced by his continuing pursuit of individual and group forays into diverse musical territories, Chris is a musician and writer who doesn’t shun any of his varying influences. Here, he make a bold return to his power pop origins with a record that features loud, crunchy guitars and catchy, lilting melodies that yield a natural sonic canvas for his blend of thoughtful lyrics and attention to song-craft. “Veteran North Carolina pop dude Chris Church is back with the impressive, 14-track ‘Limitations of Source Tape’. Not many limitations to be found here, honestly, as the album brims with nicely sung, sharply written tunes that reveal new layers with each successive listen. Church’s vocal doppelganger is Matthew Sweet, although the liveliness of tracks such as ‘Worse Things Happen at Sea’ muster up an energy that Sweet hasn’t displayed in years. Most all of the tunes here are immediately engaging, literate and passionate pop-rock numbers that deftly glide along on cushions of acoustic and electric guitars sitting pretty underneath Church’s urgent vocals. Faves include the sureshot rocker ‘Fall Into Me,’ the sweetly mysterious ‘Pollyanna’s Going Dark,’ the crunchier ‘Something Completely’ (nice interplay between the lead and backing vocals on the chorus here) and ‘Understudy Blues’ (love the distorted freakout guitar solo) and the hypnotically catchy and speedy ‘Bell the Cat,’ which features another nice little guitar solo courtesy of Charlie Shoemake. This record is yet another grand example of highly involved (and evolved) guitar-pop that sadly flies under the radar all too often.” – John Borack/Goldmine Magazine GREAT!! ... read more »

The Joy Of Pop
Price: $10.00
Artist: Dana Countryman
Description: Dana's fourth release (his last being the terrific “Girlsville” collection) delivers 14 perfectly realized melodic gems with the help of Klaatu's Dee Long, Dana's wife Tricia, and Matt Tyson. He’s quickly become known for writing and producing his particular brand of original, 60’s and 70’s-style retro-pop. “The Joy Of Pop” continues this tradition. “Once again, he has delivered a true record of pure pop bliss! You will be taken on a journey that will have these songs stuck in your head for the rest of your life!” – Michael McCartney/The Time Machine “The brightest sunshine you will hear all year!” – Adam Waltemire/Pop Garden Radio “The songwriting, and especially nthe melodies, are top-shelf.” – Probyn Gregory/The Wondermints “This is bright, bouncy, sweet pop music that recalls the Top 40 from 40 years ago. If you are a nostalgic sap like me, you’ll love it. Highly Recommended!” – Powerpopaholic.com “This is most definitely one of this year's best releases, a top-notch collection of retro-pop. In my view, it is his best collection thus far.” – Alan Haber/PurePopRadio.com And that’s saying something! And we don’t have to say anything else! GREAT!! ... read more »

Scenery For Dreamers
Price: $16.00
Artist: Daniel Wylie's Cosmic Rough Riders
Description: WOW!! Brand new release from Daniel, who is quick to proudly point out that this one’s got a Crazy Horse vibe to it – and that ain’t far from the truth folks! Daniel provides some further insight regarding what he was listening to/influenced by when writing/recording the new record – “early R.E.M. the Turtles pop...and just trying to keep the quality control high as I always do...keeping it ultra melodic and reversing the ‘older band gets blander’ thing that usually happens...by cranking up the guitars and adding an edge to the music.” You’ve succeeded Daniel! Lending him a helping hand on the record are Neil Sturgeon (ex-Goldenhour) on electric and acoustic guitars on all songs, and mandolin on "(Won't You) Just Smile." Johnny Smillie (of Thrum) co-produced the record with Daniel and plays guitar on "Cold Alaska", "Full Moon On the River", "Jingle Jangle Morning", "Lucky Find" and "Rope (Everybody Lies)." He also contributed the string arrangements on "A Gravestone Without A Name" and "(Won't You) Just Smile.” Stuart Kidd (BMX Bandits/Dr. Cosmos Tape Lab/The Wellgreen) is on drums and Percussion. Steph McKellar –is on bass. Jim McCulloch(Soup Drangonms/BMX Bandits) contributes additional electric guitars on "Rope (Everybody Lies)", "Full Moon On The River" and "I Hear You Call My Name."

Buddha Pesto Manifesto
Price: $10.00
Artist: Dave Caruso
Description: The follow up to 2014’s “Cardboard Vegas Roundabout​”  is here.  “In case you haven’t heard his previous work, Caruso has an engaging singing style and a penchant for pleasing melodies. That is immediately evident from the get-go as he goes into storytelling mode with ‘Boomer, Jenna & Lennie’.  ‘Hanging With You’ is a positively charming bit of Gerry & The Pacemakers/early Beatles-era pop.  If you like the 60’s easy listening sound, then you’ll really enjoy ‘Getting Involved’.  It has an infectious melody that takes you on a Sunday morning ride through the hills of your youth.  While there are more than a few very worthy tracks here, the standout single for me is ‘The Girl Who Checks All The Boxes’.  With a whopping hook from start to finish, the song is not only catchy has H-hell, it’s lyrically brilliant in its simplicity.  It’s one of those songs that you hear and say to yourself ‘Damn, I wish I wrote that!’” – PowerPopNews.com  “Caruso has so many musical and lyrical ideas on this record and manages to stuff them into each song.  ‘Boomer, Jenna & Lennie’ has an Andrew Gold feel throughout the song, but features a memorable descending bass line in the chorus – a brave but perfect counterpoint to the verses. On the third chorus, you hear nods to Gold’s ‘Lonely Boy’ – one of the best pop songs of the 70’s.  ‘Hanging With You’ is the Beatles reincarnated; Caruso even throws in a Beatlesque ‘Oooh!’ from ‘From Me to You’ to punctuate the similarity. And that’s okay; Caruso can carry his own melodies without borrowing from others, and the insertion is an obvious nod to his contemporaries.  ‘God’s Green Acre’ features synthesizers that mimic a harpsichord and violins – again, a nod to the Fab Four. He then evokes a bit of the 80’s with ‘Getting Involved.’  ‘And here, deep within our minds/Is strength we never thought we’d find,’ he admits. Caruso could be singing about himself, for he has reached deep within himself to create memorable songs throughout the album.  And that’s probably the only problem; each song has its own earworm – some with several – and during the day, they all manage to make their way into your head. Okay, that’s not a problem, unless you have dozens of songs going through your head at once like I do.  But it’s the hallmark of a good pop song, and Caruso has managed to do it not once but 10 times.  He ends the album with a piano ballad, ‘I Get to Make You Laugh’.  It’s touching and doesn’t resemble the Beatles at all. If anything, it’s Elton John from the early 70’s – a perfect ending to a perfect album.  ‘BPM’ is one of the top listens of 2017 so far – there’s not a bad apple in the bunch, which makes it very appetizing – and good for you.” – HooksandHarmonies.com  EXCELLENT!! ... read more »

Ups Downs and Merry-Go-Rounds
Price: $11.00
Artist: Drums And Wires UK
Description: Drums And Wires UK are a 3 piece indie/pop/rock band from Haslemere in Surrey UK. Their music has been described as "power pop/rock, with a touch of mod, a hint of psychedelia, a big dusting of vocal harmonies and the occasional epic orchestral ballad". The band features Mod pop veteran Jon Bicknell on bass who made his bones during the late 70’s/early 80’s UK Mod Revival with one of the best at the time that you may have heard of – Squire! “The songs/music being fresh Mod-ern mixed with influences from bands like Squire and XTC among others. But this is 2017 and it sounds it. I couldn't pay it a bigger compliment than just that. It’s today music that will interest all the old codger Mods like myself. That's not to just say it’s Mod. No, its honest music being played by real musicians. And they deserve the recognition. It’s the best album you are likely to hear until their next album." - Mike Oliver “7 belting power pop tracks just right for the Summer. If you liked Squire you'll love these boys...” – Alan May “I love the lyrical idea to ‘All The Things You Gave’, the ‘take me down a peg or three’ line is pure genius, great wordplay, with the whole song moving along nicely at a solid foot tapping pace. ‘I Should Have Known’ is another pop gem, but the opening tracks are just appetizers for what is the main course or ‘meat’ of the album. ‘I Want To See The Sun’ is a great slice of pop music. Great vocal lines, excellent guitar work throughout, with all kind of influences from bands that I grew up loving (Pink Floyd, Tears For Fears, XTC), the psychedelic ending to the song is a monster piece of work, great stuff. ‘Tell Me What To Say’ is a single in waiting. With guitar riffs that Paul Weller would be proud of, this song just powers its way to an all too brief conclusion. Solid as a rock throughout, with drums and bass in perfect unison. Possibly the best piece of music on the album, but there are more gems when you keep digging. ‘Don’t Look So Down’ and ‘Sunshine Smile’ keep the foot on the acceleration pedal until we reach the last track on the album, ‘Musing Time’, which is the perfect ending to a great album. Atmospheric, monumental, a classic pop anthem.” – Tony Ross EXCELLENT!! ... read more »

Spit You Out Like Revenue
Price: $16.00
Artist: Dr. Bombay
Description: Dr. Bombay is a 4-piece rock band from Brisbane, Australia, featuring ex-members of Voodoo Lust, Kewpie Doll, Dirty F-Holes, and Died Pretty. Formed in 2013, the band joined forces to spread their love of energetic pop/rock, continuing the tradition of great Australian rock bands like Radio Birdman, Lime Spiders, Screaming Tribesman, Hoodoo Gurus, etc.  “A lot of water’s passed under the Story Bridge since Brisbane’s Dr Bombay released their debut album ‘Dose’ three years ago.  Amicable line-up changes mean that just two original members, singer Gary Slater and guitarist Stewart De Lacy, remain.  What hasn’t altered is Slater’s grasp of what makes great songwriting. The ex-Voodoo Lust and latter-day Trilobites frontman came up with all 13 of the tracks on this, their second effort - and there are some pearlers in the ranks.  The title track is one of those rousing, hooky pop gems with which the Voodoos used to pepper their sets. Confident and poised, it unfolds with a commanding Slater vocal and builds on the layered guitar work of De Lacy.  Guest Screaming’ Stevie’s organ is a classy addition. Some Kuepper-esque chording with some slash and burn guitar in the swelling outro is the icing.  ‘Didn't See That Comin'’ is a little more acerbic and a contrast to some of the other fresh-faced, melodic pop.  That word ‘melody’ being critical and never far from the surface.  Just when you think a cut like ‘Before I Break’ is going to end up as fairly rote pop, that melodic intent saves the day.  ‘All I Need’ is a jaunty singalong with a chorus that's as catchy as it's obvious. No complaints here.  ‘Shades Of Green’ shows the band extending the sonic palette by some degrees; Screaming’ Stevie’s keys and a tidal surge bass-line show the way with synthesized horns punching in and out. There's clearly a bit of experimentation afoot with the sound. On the next album - yeah, they should have another one in them - I'd love to hear them take it to even more different places, sonically speaking.  Most of their songs have a light pop-rock touch, but De Lacy dirties his tone for the heavier ‘Didn’t See That Comin’’.  Stevie adds a Stax soul organ to ‘Death of Me’ with a remotely country twang to the guitar.  De Lacy unreels some of his best guitar work on the tough closer, ‘Do You Feel It Too?’, where Joe Thorburn’s dynamic drumming comes to the fore.  It's pop, old-fashioned pop, if you like, played by humans. How unfashionable. Thank f*ck for that. “– i94bar.com  EXCELLENT!! ... read more »

Denny Isle Drive
Price: $16.00
Artist: Edward Penfold
Description: Edward Penfold returns with the follow up to 2016’s “Caulkhead”.  A long list of collaborators were called upon to help record the album. This included members of the Bloom collective as well as the loosely coined Belvoir House Band.  “The album is both unusual and familiar.  On one hand, the hazy, psychedelic odd-pop present here isn’t the kind of thing that you hear every day in 2017, unless you work in a vintage shop.  On the other hand, it is the kind of thing that Ringo Starr might have written for The Beatles after a session with the guru, including all the missteps that would entail. Musically, ‘Denny Isle Drive’ can be whimsical and dreamlike, with swooping strings and chiming piano riffs.  Tracks like ‘Bullfrog’ and ‘Shallow Valley’ would be at home on a ‘Willy Wonka’ soundtrack, and are the record’s highlights – sugary and sweetly imaginative.” – LoudandQuiet.com  “The value of this album depends entirely on the listener’s love for Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd, and Kevin Ayers.  This entire record is an extremely tuneful collection that pretty much sounds like, well, Syd Barrett, Pink Floyd, and Kevin Ayers.   ‘Conker’ is a slowly strummed and Syd Barrett-voiced recreation of everything Syd Fanzine ‘Terrapin’ hoped to review but sadly ran out of Barrett originals.  Oddly, ‘Spring Parade’ starts with a harmonica that recalls Neil Young and then develops into a pretty great melodic tune that has the same languid beauty as Floyd’s ‘Us and Them”.   That’s the problem with this record.  Oh, I want to write it off as a rip-off of too many great artists, but darn, if the songs aren’t just pretty great.  ‘Betsy’s Linen’ is pure ‘Madcap’ with its simply strummed guitar.  ‘Bungalow White’ extends the palette into ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’ territory before it morphs musically into the ending bit from Floyd’s ‘Time,’ the part that states, ‘Thought I had something more to say.’  The baritone ghost of Kevin Ayers is very much part of this record.  ‘Northern Himisphere’ deepens the vocals and delivers that carefree and wistful Canterbury sound that pays little heed to the pressures of time and reality. It also recalls the absolute gorgeous silvery tones of one Raymond Douglas Davies, circa ‘Days’ or (almost) ‘Waterloo Sunset.’  The brief piano ‘Suntan”’is an intro to ‘Grasshopper,’ which is not Syd’s ‘Jugband’ or Syd’s ‘Blues’, but in its own time becomes positively jolly, as only Kevin Ayers could be jolly in his very own  ‘Joy of a Toy’ manner.  It’s all sort of like the cover for Floyd’s ‘Ummagumma’ where the various band members exchange exact positions in photos that recede inwardly and shrink into a weird and ever-smaller portion of the band.  So, between the words (or betwixt the notes), there’s a lot to like about this record.  ‘Cactus Shadow’ is another prelude to the Pink Floyd ‘Brain Damage’ or ‘Shallow Valley’ territory.  But then ‘Bullfrog’ is absolutely beautiful with strings that soar above the strummed guitar.  This is Roy Harper ‘Twelve Hours of Sunset’ stuff.  It’s lovely in an early 70’s type of lovely.  Then it all ends with ‘Garden Fresh,’ and the sound of Floyd, the Beatles, Kevin Ayers, and everything wonderful about the late 60’s and early 70’s, a time when the very warmth of the music overwhelmed the cold commercial concerns that left Syd Barrett possibly drug-addled, confused, and extremely clever when, apparently, our Syd, when asked by rock journalist supreme Nick Kent about his new post-Floyd group Stars, simply replied, ‘I’m sorry, I don’t speak French.’   I think everyone of us, whether sane or not, would love to say that to someone at least once in a lifetime.  This album, in its own way, pretty much says that very same thing.” – Soundblab.com  GREAT!! ... read more »
