Great Event Syndrome
Price: $13.00
Artist: Chris Lund
Description: Remember the Lund Bros. who released some amazing power pop back in the late 90’s/early 00’s under their own name and as Loser? Well it certainly has been a while since we’ve heard from either of them! “Great Event Syndrome” is a new solo recording from chief songwriter and vocalist Chris Lund. “It’s self-produced and home-recorded, though you’d never know it from the ‘Abbey Road’-like production values. Content-wise the record is maximum ear candy with Lund slipping in all sorts of nods and winks to that classic mid-60’s British Invasion rock and roll sound. It’s all on display on the single-worthy ‘Tell Me,’ from the chunky guitar hooks, to vocals that shift from sounding very Cheap Trick-Robin Zander early on, to something like Rush’s Geddy Lee in a mellow mood, to ever-so-Beatles on the stretched out ‘tonight-t-t-t’ in the chorus. I love the wobbly synth that crops up all over the tune. ‘What’s Her Name’ is another highlight that showcases Lund’s careful attention to vocal arrangements. Though the knee-jerk critics’ reaction is to connect Lund’s style with the Beatles (and on songwriting that is definitely true), vocally he reminds me a lot of Alan Clarke of the Hollies and the harmonies associated with that band (ain’t NOTHING wrong with that, folks!). Also check out ‘The Juice,’ where nice acoustic guitar picking combines with some 60’s American west coast vocal stylings to belie the song’s serious subject matter. And this just scratches the surface of this great album.” – Dennis Pilon/PopRockRecord.com GREAT!! ... read more »

3 (Gs) - A Tribute To The Bee Gees
Price: $14.00
Artist: Coke Belda
Description: NEW RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL! Before you say to yourself, “oh no, not another tribute album”, you won’t be saying that after you hear this one – one of the best tributes ever done to one artist! “So natural is Coke Belda's ability to breathe new life into the songs of the Bee Gees that it would seem perfectly acceptable to call him ‘Mr. Natural,’ at least temporarily, and in honor of one of the songs on this alluring celebration of the charms of the Brothers Gibb. The long-awaited followup to his debut ‘I’ and ‘Nummer Zwei’ similarly breathes new life into the art of musical homage. Certainly, paying tribute to favored artists is a tradition in pop music, so Belda's 12 song paean of Bee Gees joy is not all that unexpected, especially when you consider how enamored he is of the group's songs. Which is obvious as he serves up peerless versions of classics and buried treasures such as ‘Run to Me,’ (from ‘To Whom It May Concern’) ‘I've Gotta Get a Message to You’ (from ‘Idea’) and ‘Sir Geoffrey Saved the World’ (the B-side to their ‘World’ single) with both reverent approach and Belda style. Playing all the instruments and singing all the vocal parts (save for some welcome and soulful passages from Gretchen Wheels' Lindsay Murray on ‘Run to Me’ and ‘I've Gotta Get a Message to You’), he delivers a tour de force that should land on more than a few best-of lists later this year. One of the absolute joys of a terrific album such as the rather cleverly titled ‘3 (Gs)’ is discovering the surprises contained within, and seeing the striking cover art by Ignacio Alcázar. Speaking of surprises, 1965's ‘Claustrophobia,’ (from ‘The Bees Gees Sing and Play 14 Barry Gibb Songs’) arranged and played by Coke as a sweet Merseybeat romp, will have you booking tickets for the Cavern in Liverpool (and a virtual time travel trip back to the 60’s). The album closer, a beautiful take on ‘Our Love (Don’t Throw It All Away),’ a top 10 Billboard chart hit for Andy Gibb (from his ‘Shadow Dancing’ album) in 1978, written by Bee Gee Barry and keyboardist Blue Weaver, is another welcome, perhaps unexpected nugget. ‘3 (Gs)’ is the, yes, natural and welcome third project from the artist whose travels brought him from Spain to take root in Germany and now in the United States. Naturally, this is the next step in his musical journey, and one you should absolutely follow with glee.” – Alan Haber/Pure Pop Radio The rest of the songs and their original source are: “Idea” (from “Idea”), “Cucumber Castle” (from “Bee Gee’s First”), “Mr Natural” (from “Mr. Natural), “ (B Gibb, R Gibb), Mr. Natural”), “First of May” (from Odessa”), “Indian Gin and Whisky Dry” (from “Idea”), “Edge Of The Universe (from “Main Course”), and “You Win Again” (from E.S.P”)! “If you aren’t already a fan of (especially) early Bee Gees, this record will make you want to investigate and become one!” – Max Humphries “Get ready for Volume 2” Coke warns. Based on “Volume 1”, we already are! GREAT!! ... read more »

Diamond Hands
Price: $10.00
Artist: Diamond Hands
Description: NEW RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT KAT LABEL! Previously only available on vinyl! Diamond Hands is the nom de plume of the L.A. duo of Jon Flynn and Joel Wall. And let it be known, these two popsters have an uncanny knack for a never-ending barrage of earworm melodies and retro-influenced instrumentation all in under 3 minutes! “By far, it seems one of the biggest releases I missed in 2016 was this album. ‘Not The Same’ brings the jangle and hook to the front and the follow up ‘Maybe Tomorrow’ is even better with its Beatlesque chorus and tight harmonies. They break out the cowbell for the Raspberries-like ‘See You Again,’ even though lyrically its very basic. So many highlights here, ‘Just Another Day’ brings back the Rickenbacker and the rolling piano on “Come Home” is like ‘RAM’-era McCartney. All killer – no filler here. Had I been aware sooner, it would’ve been wedged into my top ten of 2016!” – Powerpopaholic.com “Diamond Hands perform a brand of sugary pop that always goes down well in these circles. Jingle jangle with great harmonies, it has all the melodic hooks you need and shows power pop is still music that’s beloved of the young.” – IDontHearASingle.com GREAT!!! ... read more »

Jonny Weathers and Cosmic Scream
Price: $15.00
Artist: Jonny Weathers and Cosmic Scream
Description: NEW RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!! Get ready for something a little different (but still very kool) from us! For the uninitiated, Jonny Weathers is the alter ego of Gareth Proctor. His self-titled, 23-track Kool Kat Musik label debut combines two previously download-only releases – “Jonny Weathers and Cosmic Scream” and “Miner’s Union Songbook”. For further insight (and giving credit where credit is due), we’ll now turn it over to the man who introduced Jonny to Kool Kat, Don Valentine of the excellent “I Don’t Hear A Single” blog: While the UK is not particularly noted for Garage rock, it seems to be something largely prevalent in American genes, that’s what makes Jonny so special. From the opening bars of ‘I’ve Been Rollin’ on his 2014, ‘Miner’s Union Songbook’, it was clear that this was gonna be some ride. That opener made me think that I’d found London’s Iggy Pop. There was far more to him than that as the ensuing tracks hit my ears. This was formidable lo-fi rock. ‘This Is The Man’ came over all ‘Psycho Candy’ and what followed was a fuzz rock odyssey. Listening back to that album now, it still sounds just as good. The comparisons are obvious, Spaceman 3, Thirteenth Floor Elevators, Jesus and Mary Chain etc. But it doesn’t end there, real pop sensibilities fought to get out, the psych pop of ‘Planet Of 2’ is so Pretty Things. What grabbed me most was the guitar sound, it was hypnotic. 2016’s ‘Jonny Weathers And Cosmic Scream’ is a revelation, keeping all of the essential ingredients that made the debut so entrancing, but had added some extra oomph. The album fleshed out the sound, added influences like The Rolling Stones and Primal Scream and the guitar work is extraordinary. It became a big favourite of mine and the ‘I Don’t Hear A Single’ blog followers. There is way more variance than on the debut. It sounds deliberately ramshackle, because this boy can play and considering that he’s a multi instrumentalist, there’s a real cohesive feel to it all. The gem is the psych wonderment of ‘Mongo Shaker’, but there is also loads here to keep your attention. ‘Shambhala’ could be on The Beatles’ ‘White Album’, yet ‘You’ll Always Be A Planet To Me’ could be Island- era Mott The Hoople. ‘Caroline These Things Happen All The Time’ is a meandering joy of a song and ‘The Bullet and The Breeze and The Killing Floor’ sounds like Alexis Korner fronting The Stones. Both of these albums are essential listening. This 2-fer should certainly raise Jonny’s profile - he should be far bigger than he is. There are so few people who can carry off this type of vibe, and he is one of the best guitarists that have appeared in recent years.” We also hear touches of 60’s psych and lots of early 90’s Brit Pop touchstones like The Stone Roses and Charlatans UK throughout!

Silverlake
Price: $18.00
Artist: Pugwash
Description: For almost two decades, Thomas Walsh has been writing great pop songs that have won him praises from his peers (notably from his greatest influence, the ELO frontman Jeff Lynne).  Pugwash’s guitarist Tosh Flood joined Divine Comedy for the “Foreverland” album and tour which prompted Thomas to return Pugwash to what it originally was, a solo project.  A phone call to long time collaborator (and friend) Jason Falkner to enquire about producing the album was met with a resounding “yes” and less than 10 months later, we have this delightful slice of pop perfection.  “Pugwash has often been labelled as ‘retro’ but ‘Silverlake’ is anything but a retro record, the songs might display classic pop songcraft but Falkner’s production makes sure that they don’t come out as an homage (think XTC under their Dukes of Stratosphear alias) to the late 60’s pop boom.   Starting on a very strong note with the breezy single ‘The Perfect Summer’, with a great chorus with layers of acoustic guitars and a crashing snare (Jeff Lynne would definitely put his seal of approval on this track).  Walsh’s yearning vocals and vocal hooks work wonders on ‘What Are You Like’ and ‘Better Than Nothing At All’ (which features some beautiful chord changes and great unobtrusive guitar solos).  The heady chorus of ‘Without You’ is matched to a background of jangly arpeggios and analog synths that suit the song to a T while the chamber pop of ‘Sunshine True’ starts with a reference to The Kinks’ ‘David Watts’.  ‘Everyone Knows That You’re Mine’ is a languid number built around another great jangly guitar lick and Falkner’s bass playing skills are put to good use on ‘Make It Yourself’.  The acoustic ‘Such A Shame’ could have fitted nicely on Paul McCartney’s first solo album and ‘Easier Done Than Said’ is certainly the track where Falkner’s hand is felt the most (the arpeggio that pops in at regular intervals and the driving bass line are unmistakable).  ‘Autarch’ is a suitably elegiac coda to the record and probably the most experimental track on the record including a wild guitar solo.” – LouderThanWar.com  GREAT!! ... read more »

In Between The Spaces
Price: $13.00
Artist: Richard Turgeon
Description: NEW RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL – AVAILABLE NOW!! Richard Turgeon is an author, musician, designer, and illustrator based in San Francisco. He’s a modern day suburban dad who writes, performs, and records original rock songs, often times playing most of the instruments himself. He’s been a member of various bands over the years, but “In Between The Spaces” is his debut, full-length solo outing that’s already garnered some pretty high praise! “You can feel the presence of ‘90s rock in its prime… like the Foo Fighters met the Beach Boys and invited Pearl Jam and Nirvana to the party. There isn’t a song on the album that my feet didn’t tap along to.” - Randy Skaggs/Q108 Kingston “A power pop rock gem!” - Sweet Sweet Music Blog “Across its ten tracks, this record explains why I love the current batch of Californian pop so much. Beautifully produced, melodic, riff led and with just enough of a hint of what's gone before. Richard Turgeon has conjured up a splendid Riff Heavy affair. You certainly rock, but essentially in the sun. He is a one man art college, music, art, illustration, photography, writing, the album though shows nothing less than full concentration. It feels like the 90's US rock heyday. when the lines between power pop and singer songwriters were blurred. Think Matthew Sweet when Richard Lloyd was with him and imagine Mitch Easter producing them. There are times when Turgeon sounds a touch IRS-era Michael Stipe, but the album as a whole is very much melodic rock that starts with a hook that grabs you more and more as the song progresses. There are times that this mode is stepped out of, the likes of ‘The Candidate’ which has a bit of a modern day Santana feel, but it's at its best when it does what it does because it's done so well. At times, there is a melodic Bob Mould or even Let's Active feel, all good things, I also think Scott Miller at times. Songs like the opener, ‘Big Foot's An Alien’ and ‘I Don't Need You’ are wonderfully anthemic and Turgeon's guitar playing is top notch. ‘In Between Spaces’ is a corker of an album, an ace way to spend 37 minutes.” – IDontHearASingle.com “There isn’t a bad song on this record. Don’t be surprised if it ends up on this site’s best power pop albums list by year’s end.” - PowerPopNews.com GREAT!! ... read more »

Pins & Needles
Price: $12.00
Artist: Scott Gagner
Description: When discussing the follow up to his previous release, the lush, life-affirming "“Rise & Shine"”, Scott declares – “I guess Newton was right.  Every action truly has an equal and opposite reaction."  While "Rise & Shine" was largely inspired by the birth of his daughter, "Pins & Needles" is a darker, more rocking affair, where the characters deal with addiction, separation, and mortality.  "Yeah, I guess the honeymoon period is over.  It was time to put on my 'big boy pants' and face the darker side. Doing so within a melodic pop song will probably never get old for me, especially when mixed with a little humor. There's a great tradition of songwriters blending the sweet and the sour - Alex Chilton, Warren Zevon, Lennon." he adds.  The record features such power-pop royalty as Pete Thomas (of Elvis Costello's The Attractions, Ron Sexsmith, Matthew Sweet), and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies, Big Star, R.E.M.).  The album closes with a stunning re-imagining of "America the Beautiful," which Scott says was "...originally recorded for my grandmother’s funeral, per her wishes, but took on a new and more weighty relevance after the 2016 election."  Opening with ‘Someone’, it’s a mid-tempo rocker that reminded me of the late great Tom Petty, and the creeping organ ups the soulful ‘Heart Attack’ with some great lyrics about being ‘a victim of love, not heart disease’.’An alt-country style narrative plays through the gem ‘El Rancho Inn’ describing the aftermath of a crime.  The sound is comparable to Wilco or late-era Jayhawks.  But then ‘The Ghost of Me & You’ bumps the whole production up a notch.  The slow contrasting harmonies on ‘By The Waters of Minnetonka’ and ‘Lazy Afternoon’ paint a gorgeous sonic atmosphere. The music has more of a California style, and fans of Brian Wilson, Amiee Mann and Roger McGuinn will find a lot to love here. It all comes together on ‘Strawberry Hill’ with references to Fats Domino (RIP), creating a true classic.  In fact, I could not find a single false note or ounce of filler.  You couldn’t make a more beautiful album.  Highly Recommended and it makes my end of the year ‘best of’ list.” - Powerpopaholic.com  GREAT!! ... read more »

Good Fortune
Price: $14.00
Artist: The Forty Nineteens
Description: NEW RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL – AVAILABLE NOW!! Direct from the success of their Little Steven’s Underground Garage “Coolest Song in the World” feature, The Forty Nineteens are back! The Forty Nineteens can be described as Garage Rock, Power Pop, with a Motor City power plant and good-time raucousness. Their sound was forged in LA's underground alternative scene – the result is that they peddle in 60’s garage rock, meets 80’s garage pop. Sometimes, to get where you’re going, you have to revisit where you've been. With “Good Fortune,” the band have created a brilliant record (their best yet in our humble opinion) that’s unabashedly drawn from their alternative scene days in Hollywood. “They unleash another blast of gritty garage-punk infused with snappy power-pop. The album’s first single, ‘And Such And Such,’ (already spun by Rodney Bingenheimer on his Little Steve‘s Underground Sirius-XM show) opens the album with hook-driven rhythm sections propelled by buoyant guitar riffs and 60’s pop choruses. Following suit, the trio unleashes punked-up three-chord vigor on ‘Easy Come Easy Go,’ ‘Another Day,’ and ‘Crocodile Tears.’ Each song encompasses a no-frills architecture layered with colorful guitar overtones and sing-along vocal harmonies. They even take their throwback sound even further back in time. ‘My Camaro (Have Some Fun)’ sounds like something that could have been written by Chuck Berry. The lyrics bask in the 1950’s ‘good ol’ days’ simplicity, but the music is textured with surfy lead guitars and 60’s pop drums. Trippy overtones evoke a sci-fi thriller vibe on “Purple Microdot,” a song with melodies reminiscent of The Beatles (with a Charlatans UK-like shuffle). Similarly, ‘Let Love In’ and “Time Is On My Side” (a cover of the Rolling Stones hit) further embrace the feathery psychedelic landscape of the 60’s with lively melodies and bright pop overtones. Theie overall sound often pulls from sub-genres as recent as the 80’s and as far back as the 60’s giving each song some wiggle room for distinction.” – SoundRenaissance.net "A new favorite of mine." "One Hell of a Rock n Roll Band!" – Michael Des Barres "They sing about good times, I'd like to have a 383 Dodge Charger." – Rodney Bingenheimer GREAT!!! ... read more »

The Stanleys
Price: $12.00
Artist: The Stanleys
Description: The Stanleys, made up of Perth power pop stalwarts Mark Di Renzo (Gigantic) and Jamie Horsburgh, together with Oslo’s Tomas Dahl (Caddy) have created a long-awaited debut album consisting of 11 songs of pure power pop bliss! Their catchy melodies, lush harmonies and crunching guitars will have you singing and dancing along no matter how hard you try to resist. “Power Pop is a broad church these days and away from the pointless arguments of what is and isn't, but this self titled debut is as good an example of what is as any around. I get a similar thrill listening to it as I did when I first heard the Somerdale album last year. It's also nice personally to be back on familiar territory and first and foremost, Power Pop is what I do and I have in my hands, a possible album of the year for the genre. I know it isn't, but it seems ages since I've heard something so akin to the reason that I got into Power Pop. Every one of these 11 songs get you singing along to the chorus, each hooks you and starts the feet tapping. I'd heard for a few months that this release was gonna be something special, a true Power Pop album. Well…it is! This isn't Merseybeat, think New Wave 1978-1983. Not only that, but there are plenty of Glam Rock influences, particularly on songs like ‘Cigarette Glow’. I'm constantly reminded of The Plimsouls and The Romantics, although ‘What Are We Gonna Do?’ could have been written by Kimberley Rew. At other times, I'm reminded of the likes of Michael Carpenter with the chimes and hooks on ‘My World’. ‘Always’ is very Nick Piunti. ‘Hefner’ is a glammed up version of The Knack. ‘Everybody Dance’ is pure Chinn and Chapman Smokie. The album doesn't let up for the first eight of the 11 songs. Then the Somerdale comparison kicks in with ‘This Time Goodbye’. ‘Summer’ is all Brit Pop Dodgy and the closing ‘Kid's Gonna Rock’ is a real teen anthem. All this ignores ‘Amy’, the opening song and probably the best single that I've heard this year.” – IDontHearASingle.com So Don, you DO occasionally hear a single! GREAT!!!! ... read more »

Cold Gas Giants
Price: $14.00
Artist: Trip Wire
Description: The third full-length release (and Kool Kat label debut) from San Francisco based four-piece Trip Wire, finds the band veering headlong toward the upbeat, harmony-drenched sounds of their debut (2015's “Get In & Get Out”) after a brief flirtation with melancholy and experimentation on 2016’s “Seizureville”. Through several lineup changes they have stayed together via a shared love of harmony and indie pop song craft honed over a 20-year career. Based on the strength of both their existing material and that of the songs they were working on for “Cold Gas Giants”, co-founders/core writing duo of Marty Schneider (The Midway Delta, The Campbell Apartment) and Bill Hunt (Captain Fatass, The Generous Grants), is strengthened and expanded by the addition of Jeff Shelton (Spinning Jennies, The Well Wishers) on bass/songwriting contributions, and Stu Shader on drums. Shader is a veteran drummer who has worked with members of Greg Kihn, Chuck Prophet, Santana, and Steve Miller. The three writing styles brought together on one recording creates a collection of songs that work together well but remain varied enough to keep the listener engaged. From the first notes of the catchy, plaintive “Long Days Gone” to the Rolling Stones inspired groove of closing track “The Same Reaction”, “Cold Gas Giants” is peppered with riffs inspired by AC/DC and The Beatles and mixed with Beach Boy harmonies to great effect. “Classic power pop tunes served up just the way you want it…” – Jammerzine.com “Their hybrid of jangle pop and rock dictates their music as it sways from one style to another…virtually no filler here, making it a highly recommended addition to my power pop collection.” – Powerpoaholic.com GREAT!! ... read more »
