Wish I Could See + bonus disc
Price: $16.00
Artist: Cheap Star
Description: RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT MUSIK LABEL!! What do Jon Auer (The Posies), Brendan Benson (solo/The Raconteurs), Gary Louris (solo/The Jayhawks), Brian Young (The Posies/Fountains Of Wayne/Jesus & Mary Chain), Matthew Caws (Nada Surf), Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Jellyfish/Lickerish Quartet/solo) and Mitch Easter (all world!) all have in common? They’re the star-studded cast of guests who have contributed their talents to “Wish I Could See”, the latest and greatest release from Cheap Star, and followup to 2016’s “Songs For The Farrelly Brothers”!! The record picks up where the band left us on his previous journey…at the end of the 60’s golden era of Californian music and the rise of the 70’s pop, while integrating elements of his best aforementioned guests Cheap Star is helmed by France’s Remi Vaissiere who penned, and sings lead on all of the songs on the record. The results are absolutely STELLAR with all of the guest contributors at the top of their game!!! Top-notch songs, lots of guitars and heavenly harmonies permeate the proceedings! Produced and mixed by Jon Auer, who uses many of his skills on every track, the album carries a sunshine tinted by sweetness feeling over its course reminiscent of a gentle blend of Michael Penn and Nada Surf. “I really can’t picture a fan of power pop who wouldn’t love this record! Like their previous efforts, the Posies vibe is ever-present – and why would it not be with Jon Auer on board! Bursting with excellent songs Vaissiere’s gorgeous singing is guaranteed to hold your interest from start to finish (before you press the ‘replay’ button)! This is a high quality pop album full of gorgeous melodies and beautiful harmonies. There’s also enough variation to maintain your interest.” – Cesar Milan COMES WITH AN EXCLUSIVE BONUS DISC - “WISH I COULD SEE (ACOUSTICALLY)” WHICH, AS THE TITLE IMPLIES, FEATURES GORGEOUS ACOUSTIC VERSIONS OF ALL OF THE ALBUM’S SONGS!!! GREAT!! ... read more »

Reverse Light Years (2CD)
Price: $17.00
Artist: Even
Description: If there was ever a time for Even to make a record like “Reverse Light Years”, that time is now. Locked down due to the pandemic, frontman Ash Naylor was afforded the time and headspace to delve into the project holed up in his home studio. With 17 tracks spread across two CDs, it's the ultimate opportunity for the band to show off the breadth of their powers. And why not, they've been the kings of power pop in Australia for over a quarter of a century. If you like guitar-driven pop-rock in just about any form, you'll almost certainly find something for you here. “Nothing succeeds like excess, and when it’s a double album of melodic anthems infused with a 60’s pop harmonies, 70’s guitar solos and an 80’s/90’s mix of jangling guitars and pop melodies, you really can’t go wrong. ‘Reverse Light Years’ has all that and more, and leaves you with a sprightly jaunt and a smile you just can’t wipe off your face. They have a capacity to throw the best elements of the past into something contemporary and immensely enjoyable. Whether it’s an over the top thundering wah-wah solo in a song that careers along like something from the Yardbirds or Led Zeppelin like ‘Miracle Drum’, or sweetly infused psychedelic trips, layered harmonies and jangling guitars: this album is a collection of immersive, anthemic pop delights.” – BackseatMafia.com “There's the dreamy psych of seven minute epic 'Miracle Drum', the Beatle-esque bounce of 'Six Monkeys', the gentle Tom Petty influenced 'Let Me Know', and the almost proggy 'Lifetime'… only part of what's to offer on Disc one. Disc two is packed with just as many delights, with the Big Star styled 'Cinnamon Edge', slow-moving epic 'Starlight Caravan' and the beautifully jangling 'Roses' a few of its highlights. It's fitting that the first thing you hear on opening track 'Cherry Afterglow' is one of Naylor's many great lead guitar riffs. His axe work is the centerpiece of the album and one of a few reasons why it’s such a triumph. His playing is dexterous but never at the expense of melody, and it’s those guitar melodies that are the most consistently alluring thing on the record. You could think of ‘Reverse Light Years’ as something of a sampler, but that doesn't do justice to how harmoniously these songs live together - an ambitious but well-constructed slab of tunes that will serve as a welcome feast for dedicated fans.” – ABC.net.au GREAT!! ... read more »

Satin Returns
Price: $14.00
Artist: Even
Description: In 2018, the elder statesmen of Australian indie rock Even released their seventh album aptly titled “Satin Returns”. “Holy smokes! This album is an absolute ripper packed full of eleven indie rock gems just waiting to be heard. There’s plenty to like about Even remaining true to their sound yet sounding so fresh and exciting. The test of how good any new album is how many times it gets a thrashing before it gets tiresome. Well, after twelve listens now it is still on my player and my challenge now is picking a favorrite. Is it wrong to have eleven favorites? It has been slow going while the band piece this album together but the wait has been more than worth it and should receive plenty of positive attention. Where does it fit on the Even music spectrum? Well, for me it is definitely a cross between ‘A Different High’ and ‘Less Is More’. This one’s impact is immediate and will bowl you over. ‘The Opener’ is exactly that! A sure fire way to set the tone of the album. ‘Victoria’ is catchy as all hell. That lush sound combing bass, guitar and drums is fantastic. Thumbs up for indie rock gems ‘Out Of The Woods’, ‘Falling Down’ and ‘Jet Black’ which will no doubt be staples in the live set for quite some time to come I would imagine. ‘Indian Ocean’ is a subtle change of pace and absolute joy with its mesmerizing melody and lyrics. The epic moment on this album is the opus ‘Return To Stardust’ spanning nearly nine and a half minutes. It’s hard to not think Pink Floyd with the band taking this one to a whole new level. No doubt ‘Satin Returns’ is brilliant! ” – HiFiWay.live GREAT!! ... read more »

All Rise
Price: $14.00
Artist: Lolas
Description: RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!! First released digitally in late 2021, “All Rise” (their 9th full-length release!) has already placed in several year-end “Best Of” lists (with more still to be published). While a series of personnel shifts have taken place, lead singer, songwriter and keyboardist Tim Boykin has remained the sole original member over the years. Bassist and vocalist Valis Prochazka, and drummer, percussionist and vocalist Jaban “Jaydog” Henderson complete the latest version of the band. “Having garnered praise over the years as one of the best acts in their field, Lolas definitely live up to their exemplary reputation on this album, which many fans will agree is their strongest collection to date. Because they are creatures of good habits, the band retains their fixation on classic power pop rock throughout the set. But they are also talented enough to avoid falling into a recycling rut, so therefore, ‘All Rise’ simply adds new and exciting twists to their recognizable sound. Bright and peppy vocals, sharing the same genetic code as the Monkees and the Archies, joined by watertight instrumentation recalling both the Who and the Ramones, hold sway amid the material, spawning a bridge between the past and the present. You’ll be hard pressed to sit still when hearing songs like the rock-a-rama reflexes of ‘Storm The Heavens’ and ‘Never To Be Mine’ that sizzle and swivel with ripped riffs, mondo melodies and absorbing time changes. An interesting concept – not to mention contrast – emerges on ‘All Rise, The Sneaky Snakes Of Kudzu’, as quirky and abstract lyrics are pinned to a grand and glorious production entailing gleaming piano passages and fluctuating rhythms and hooks. Sparkling with purity and polish, ‘Pain In My Heart’ conveys an early Beatlesque feel, and then there’s ‘Message From Home’ that moves at a brisk stride and features the humming tone of bopping keyboards. The brilliantly titled ‘I Can Hear Your Beard Through The Phone’ is a slower-paced cut, but concludes to a squiggly swirl of backwards psychedelic guitars, where ‘Dirtbag On The Run’ keys in as a turbo-charged punk pop number driven by buzzing licks and a hammering groove. Also not to be neglected is the lovely ‘You And Me Will Always Be’, a mid-tempo Big Star styled ballad brimming with an emotional pull impossible to resist. When it comes to high energy and high quality pop rock, Lolas are the band to go to, and ‘All Rise’ counts as yet another perfectly-realized offering in their consistently-growing discography.” - Beverly Paterson/PsychedelicBabyMag.com GREAT!! ... read more »

Price: $16.00
Artist: The Chris White Experience
Description: “Volume 4” of The Chris White Experience is the first to delve into his career as a producer. It contains another 12 brilliant recordings from Chris’ work with Argent, Diana Dors, including singles from Marti Caine, Colin Blunstone, Duffy Power and many more.

The songs here were written by Russ Ballard, Leon Russell, Richard Myhill, Roger Cotton, and Chris White. The CD contains artwork, performer line-ups, memories from each of the sessions, and a wonderful written introduction from Chris White’s production partner in the 60’s and 70’s, Rod Argent. This collection spans songs produced between 1969-2006, showcasing the longevity of Chris White’s career between the dissolution of the original Zombies up to the current day. And there’s still much more to come…… GREAT!! ... read more »

Wattage
Price: $13.00
Artist: The Explorers Club
Description: “Wattage” is The Explorers Club’s tribute to classic 60’s radio that plays out like a show of the time and features eight cover versions along with many guest singers including Chris Price, Lannie Counts, Ryan Williams and Jeff Celentano. “The album kicks off with a kind of into from an imagined small town radio station before we head into a couple of tracks that feature Lannie Counts who hails from Phoenix, AZ but is a successful singer in Las Vegas. The first number is the wonderful ‘Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy’ a track that is a Northern Soul classic. The Tams and Booker T and The MGs have covered this track and Lannie`s vocals are a sheer delight. The soulful `Gimmie Little Sign` a song written and originally performed by Alfred Jesse Smith or Brenton Wood as he was better known. It`s a superbly upbeat version of the initial release. ‘I’ve Been Lonely Too Long’ features Chris Price and was a hit for The Young Rascals. Again, it has that stunning retro vibe. We have a take on ‘Come Softly To Me’ a hit for American vocal group The Fleetwoods. The steady drumbeat, organ refrain and occasional brass tinges allow this to become a charmingly dreamy soundscape. Jeff Celentano takes the lead on ‘Hurt So Bad’ and delivers a stunningly emotive reimagining of what was a hit for Little Anthony and the Imperials, an American rhythm and blues/soul vocal group from New York. Another song that was covered by The Fleetwoods but also by Thomas Wayne & The Delons is the ballad ‘Tragedy’ and here the band deliver a heart breaking rendition with some glorious backing harmonies and a slight orchestrated feel. ‘I’m So Proud’ is a number that was originally performed by The Impressions featuring Curtis Mayfield. So, for singer Ryan Williams to take this on was a brave move but I have to say he really knocked it out of the park. He makes it his own with some sublime musicians assisting with a steady drumbeat, piano twinklings, brass snatches and what sounds like a xylophone. The album closes with ‘Loving You Is Sweeter Than Ever’ which again has Lannie Counts on vocals. It was co-written by Stevie Wonder and performed by The Four Tops with Levi Stubbs taking the lead vocal. A number that just shouts Motown, this take is a pretty faithful reworking with a slight modern uplift. ‘Wattage’ is a masterpiece and I can`t believe that Jason Brewer continues to unearth these long forgotten classics. The guest singers Chris Price, Lannie Counts, Ryan Williams and Jeff Celentano were unknown to me but are undiscovered gems. Beg, Borrow, or Steal it – this album is phenomenal.” – MaximumVolumeMusic.com GREAT!! ... read more »

L.O.V.E. From The Santa Cruz Archives '82-'85
Price: $15.00
Artist: The Singles
Description: RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!! WOW!! You can add The Singles to the list of unknown/obscure 80’s bands that should have made it! Most of the material (14 of the 18 tracks) has never been officially released, save for the 4-song vinyl EP ‘Play It!’ that was released in 1983, and has since become a “power pop” collector’s item. Led by main singer/songwriter/guitarist Rick Gallego (Jiffipop/Cloud Eleven), The Singles were pretty well known in the Santa Cruz area as a tight 4-piece band with pop and soul influences, and in 1984 they won a battle of the bands competition out of 70 acts that had entered the contest. Gigging mostly at local clubs such as The Catalyst and O.T. Prices Music Hall, they also ventured to gigs in San Francisco and Los Angeles. Santa Cruz was a hotbed of talented bands in the 80’s and included acts such as The Call, Eddie and The Tide, Camper Van Beethoven, The Medflys, The Humans, etc., and they often shared stages with these bands. While they never signed a recording contract in their heyday, they continued to record regardless. And are we glad they did! They did receive some radio airplay and even got played on the BBC. “L.O.V.E. From The Santa Cruz Archives ’82-’85” contains all of the songs The Singles recorded during their time together. “This is the kind of stuff that would have/should have appeared on MTV’s ‘120 Minutes’ back in the day, and maybe even get moved into the channel’s heavy rotation list. They could’ve easily gone toe-to-toe with the likes of The Plimsouls, The Beat (Paul Collins) and other like-minded ‘pop’ bands of the day. I hear bits of the two aforementioned bands along with a little Clash, Elvis Costello and Style Council in their music. Kool Kat’s done it again, rescuing top-notch 80’s power pop from eternal obscurity! Solid from start to finish! You may want to re-do your favorite 80’s pop bands list after hearing this gem!” – Cesar Milan At long last, we finally get to hear this music that has been buried in the vaults for 40 years. PLAY IT…LOUD! GREAT!! ... read more »

Triptych (2CD)
Price: $17.00
Artist: The Sun Sawed In 1/2
Description: RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!! Neo-psychedelic, power-pop, sophisto-pop outfit, The Sun Sawed in 1/2 are back once again with the brilliant and stunning “Triptych,” their first full-length release since 2013’s “Elephants Into Swans.” The Sun was formed in St. Louis in 1990 and placed in the Top 5 Billboard/Ticketmaster Soundcheck best unsigned bands of 1994. They went on to record several albums for Not Lame Records with famous producer, Keith Olsen (Grateful Dead, Fleetwood Mac) before going on hiatus (for 10+ years!). “Triptych” represents the physical release of their 3 critically-acclaimed, recently released, digital-only EPs (“Beaches In Bali,” “Sirens,” and “Before The Fall”) with an additional 3 previously unreleased tracks exclusive to this specially-priced, 20 song, 2CD set! “Monster hooks, big harmonies and a whole lot more. In ten words or less, that’s how I would describe The Sun Sawed in 1/2. The irresistibly catchy ‘Twist of Lemon’ is immediately accessible, radio friendly power pop. There’s so much going on in ‘Call For A Good Time’. It reminds me of my favorite Beatles or XTC compositions. ‘Too High Strung’ may be one of my favorite tracks. It’s got a more soulful vibe with the guitar taking a stylistic detour. With more than a few twists and turns throughout, I feel as if I’d be spoiling the best parts of a good book. Suffice it to say, this is easily one of the best things I’ve heard in 2022!” – Rich Rossi/PowerPopNews.com “Their songs cover the full scope of pop rock with both originality and familiarity. Hooks aplenty and big choruses are the order of the day. Throughout, you are reminded of just how inventive the band is. There are so many completed ideas and original takes that, in my mind, The Sun Sawed In 1/2 have many peers, but no betters.” – IDontHearASingle.com “Without question, a wonderfully produced, played and sung record with an attention to detail that does not go unnoticed. Welcome back guys!” – Cesar Milan Fans of XTC, Jellyfish, The Lickerish Quartet et al – THIS IS FOR YOU!! GREAT!! ... read more »

Someone/Anyone? – A 50th Anniversary Tribute To Todd Rundgren’s “Something/Anything?”
Price: $30.00
Artist: Various Artists
Description: “Someone/Anyone? – A 50th Anniversary Tribute To Todd Rundgren’s ‘Something/Anything?’” is a complete re-imagination of Todd Rundgren’s classic 1972 double album. Universally hailed as a creative tour-de-force and one of the 70’s most groundbreaking and ambitious recordings, it included his Top 5 single, “Hello It’s Me,” as well as such fan favorites as “I Saw the Light,” and “Couldn’t I Just Tell You.” The tribute is the brainchild of “Echo In The Canyon” guitarist Fernando Perdomo, who in 2021 created a 50th Anniversary edition of Paul and Linda McCartney's “Ram” which was approved and praised by Sir Paul himself. The same thing has happened here with Todd. All 25 tracks from Todd’s original album are presented here in the same running order with loving re-invented covers of the songs by a diverse group of artists who love Todd. Tacking on 7 “bonus” tracks, there are a total of 32 tracks on this 2CD set. The participants (many of whom most pop fans are probably already familiar with) are Louise Goffin, Ken Sharp (on two tracks), Tiny Demons featuring Bobby Strickland, Probyn Gregory, Nezrok featuring Dennis Diken and Chris Bolger, Geoff Pearlman, Astral Drive, Fernando Perdomo featuring Jordan Rudess, Kasim Sultan, Victor Wainwright and The Wildroots, Adrian Bourgeois (on three tracks), Phil Parlapiano, Rob Bonfiglio (on two tracks) with Stan Lynch, Stephen Dees and Durga McBroom, Creamer, Marshall Crenshaw, Van Duren, James Booth with Carmine Appice, Scrote, Arian Fieles and John Montagna, The Miami Beach High School Rock Ensemble and Albert Castiglia Band, Secret Society, Dode Prickett featuring Brian Grace and Fuzzbee Morse, Albert Castiglia Band, Bruce McDaniel, Dave Schultz and Lyle Workman, Intoxicats (on two tracks), John Powhida International Airport, and Miami Beach High School Rock Ensemble. All net profits will go to Todd Rundgren's "Spirit Of Harmony" charity (spiritofharmony.org) which advocates music in schools. As we like to say, GREAT MUSIC FOR A GREAT CAUSE!! ... read more »

Pop Aid - A Power Pop Compilation To Benefit The Citizens Of Ukraine (3CD)
Price: $24.00
Artist: Various Artists
Description: RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!! FINALLY!! The art is done, the music has been delivered, now (we had hoped for a late June release – a bit ambitious on our part – but delayed a bit due to supply chain issues out of our control) we await the delivery of “PopAid”, a 63 track, 3CD collection to benefit the citizens of war-torn Ukraine. 100% of all profits from sales of the collection will go to World Central Kitchen, a renowned organization founded by chef Jose Andres whose mission statement is “To serve hot, nutritious meals to people who need them most. Services include Global Disaster Response Efforts, Emergency Food Relief, Resilience Programs and Restaurant Partnerships as well as advancing human and environmental health, offering access to professional culinary training, and improving food security for the people we serve.” An impressive list of 63 pop bands/artists from around the world have unselfishly provided exclusive/previously unreleased tracks present on the collection to support this important initiative! The participating artists are: Anchor & Bear, Marc Andersson, Rich Arithmetic, Arvidson & Butterflies, Ian M Bailey, Ballzy Tomorrow (Robbie Rist), Band Of Jays, Dr. Barnes (Kevin Robertson), Jim Basnight & The Moberlys, Mike Browning, Vincent Bruckert, Terry Carolan (with Al Chan & Tommy Dunbar), Chris Church, Cloud Eleven (with Rick Hromadka), Dave Cope and The Sass, The Deadlights, Defoe & Pronai, The Embryos, Flashcubes, Nick Frater, The Glad Machine, Goldstoned, Grand Splendid, Jamie Hoover (with Michael Ruiz & Elana Rogers), Jeremy (with Ken Stringfellow), John Howard (with Ian Button, Andy Lewis and Robert Rotifer), The Junior League, The Kite Collectors (feat.

Amazingly, many of the tracks present here were unrecorded at the time the notice seeking participants first went out in early March. Listening to 3CD collections like this can be a bit daunting and tedious, but I must say that, given the quality of the songs/performances and flow, this one stacks up to be one of the best of its kind – EVER!!” – Cesar Milan High praise indeed Mr. Milan!
