The Ocean
Price: $16.00
Artist: Back To The Hills
Description: It had been a long time since we had enjoyed a debut album as rounded and stimulating as the one by this formidable Spanish quintet. This is power pop in the style of Matthew Sweet, Gigolo Aunts and Velvet Crush with influences from Americana, soul and 60’s also pop clearly present. 14 tracks in all – 9 studio and 5 live. “They have a rich tone without eliminating the catchy pop hooks that make this record sound so great. This is a remarkably consistent and well-rounded affair. There's nothing to dislike about it. All of the songs are enjoyable in their own way and the record just seems to get stronger as it progresses.” – Max Humphries “While traditional in form, Back To The Hills’ music isn't retro and they manage to inject a real enthusiasm and freshness in the standard three-minute pop song. These guys are extremely talented, in melodic structure and execution, and are standouts in a crowded field of modern-day drivel. ‘Ocean’ showcases an impressive range of songwriting skills. This is pleasant stuff that’s oh so easy on the ears. The record is a fun experience with music that actually sounds fun, sunny and special. I highly recommend this album.” – Cesar Milan GREAT!! ... read more »

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!!!

Stupid Kid
Price: $14.00
Artist: David Woodard
Description: RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL! After a string of successful and well regarded digital-only EPs, David Woodard unleashes his first full length album “Stupid Kid”. If The Beatles and U2 raised an American son coming of age when 80’s rock ruled, it might sound like this Nashville native flipping cool-kid memories into grownup melodies. “Stupid Kid” stretches David’s indie rock muscle without abandoning the British invasion inspired power pop that reviewers have compared to Bill Lloyd, Matthew Sweet, Teenage Fanclub, P.Hux, and Fountains of Wayne. The record explodes with smart songwriting, tight vocals, and jangly guitars, and features collaborations with power pop queen Lisa Mychols. One of which, “Right Through Me”, that has hit written all over it. “Turns Blue” offers Lisa as the featured vocalist. David also duets with the late David Schrader, his best friend and songwriting partner, on the Schrader-penned “More Than Happiness”. “Woodard’s a very talented pop solo artist who has been churning out consistent records for the last few years…” -Jeff Shelton/The Power Pop Show “His sound reminds me of fellow Nashvillian Bill Lloyd and nothing here changes that with his jangly and catchy sound. Songs like "Nine Hundred Ninety-Nine" are effortlessly melodic.” – AbsolutePowerPop.com “A few highlights for me on this release are undoubtedly ‘Applebees’, ‘The Last Word’ and ‘Grand Scheme Of Things’. ‘Applebees’ has a slow burn take up, reeling you in with its classic story of failed rock and roll ambition and just the right amount of Fountains of Wayne hooky pathos. The FOW influences are also present on the opening to ‘The Last word” but Woodard quickly takes the song in his own direction. The track has a low key hook so subtly placed that, after repeated listenings, it really gets into your head. ‘Grand Scheme Of Things’ sails on a delightful low-key jangle wind until – bam – a killer chorus takes the listener into the stratosphere.” –PopRockRecord.com GREAT!! ... read more »

Feel Some Love
Price: $11.00
Artist: Edward O'Connell
Description: AVAILABLE OCTOBER 14 – ACCEPTING PRE-ORDERS NOW!! Rootsy popper Edward O’Connell is back with “Feel Some Love”, his third overall record, and his first since 2014’s terrific “Vanishing Act”. Reuniting with longtime producer Jared Bartlett, and wanting to capture the sound of a full band playing, the 15 songs here were recorded live in the studio. Helping Ed on the record are guitarist Buddy Speir, bass player Scott McKnight, keyboard player Jon Carroll and drummer Chuck Sullivan. “The record includes 14 new songs by me along with a cover of DC-area 80’s pop rockers The Neighbors’ ‘Sad and Lonely’. There’s lots of guitars from Buddy, fantastic keyboards from Mr. Carroll and lots of harmonies from some special guests that include familiar names like Parthenon Huxley, Thomas Walsh (Pugwash), and Robert Harrison (Cotton Mather)” explains Ed. “O’Connell creates smart, unaffected guitar-based rock that sounds instantly familiar upon its initial listen. His music has a timeless quality to it, as it if could have been released in 1969, 1979, 1989 - well, you get the point.” – Jeffrey Raskin “O'Connell is very much a power popper in the Richard X. Heyman mold. His sound builds on influences from Nick Lowe, Tom Petty, and Elvis Costello.” – Powerpopaholic.com “Imagine the Byrds meet Warren Zevon! O'Connell is living proof that Power Pop is alive and well. His vocals are meaningful and give a cool edge to his spirited, well written compositions” – PowerPopOverdose.com EXCELLENT!! ... read more »

Holy Moly
Price: $14.00
Artist: JellyFox
Description: RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT MUSIK LABEL!! Matthew Payne Thompson (JellyFox), is a musician, performer, and music composer based in Nashville, TN. The moniker JellyFox (inspired by the surrealist comedy of Noel Fielding) serves as the creative musical outlet for much of Matt’s original work. “Holy Moly” is Matthew’s debut full length, and was written and arranged by him in his home studio. The record took three years to develop between the downtime provided in an ongoing touring schedule. The album was, and is, a proud finale to a formative and defining decade. The lyrics were inspired by relationships, challenges, and changes that took place throughout his twenties, and collide with his pursuit of big, hooky choruses, airtight pop arranging, and daring chord progressions. The songs are filtered through a texture of dreamy guitars, intricate vocal harmonies, and woozy retro synths to create a style that is reminiscent of new wave, power-pop, and pop music of the 60’s. While the writing and arranging of “Holy Moly” was a solo effort, Matt was joined by several friends and frequent bandmates to perform on the final recording, including additional background vocals by Wyatt and Mandy Funderburk, Paul Runyon and Michael Williamson. Tom Myers drummed. Wyatt Funderburk also co-produced and provided the album’s final mix. The record has already garnered positive praise from several power pop “influencers”. “The guy can sing! You hear a lovely pop song on mainstream radio every once in a while, like Scouting for Girls’ 'This Ain't a Love Song', fun.'s 'We Are Young' or Donkeyboy's 'Ambitions'. 'Holy Moly' features eleven of those easily digestible earworms.” – Patrick Donders “A crisp and refreshing pop album, with well thought out hooks and razor sharp musicianship. From the big melodies to the subtle nuances, ‘Holy Moly’ provides you with a memorable and enjoyable musical ride with every listen.” - Kurt Baker “Part 80’s synth and West Coast pop, ‘Holy Moly’ is nothing short of a revelation. With sugar sweet melodies, big hooks and harmonies to die for, this record could rival many 80’s artist’s ‘best of’ albums. Not a throwaway amongst the bunch, and every track is worthy of being an ‘A’ side. While ‘Best Home Life’ is undeniably one of the most radio friendly tracks of 2022, you won’t hear a catchier, more soulful song than the track than ‘Joshua’, which may be my favorite song since Jude Cole’s ‘House Full of Reasons’. - Power Pop News “Sounding like a June and the Exit Wounds for the here and now, JellyFox delight with 11 tasty, pure melodic pop gems. You know that feeling you get when a song and its performance casts a warm glow around your heart? Get ready to bask in this top-flight, sure-to-be-a-2022-long-playing fave. “Holy Moly”? Exactly. – Alan Haber GREAT!! ... read more »

Abre Los Ojos
Price: $16.00
Artist: The Lemon Clocks
Description: Consisting of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Jeremy Morris, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Stefan Johannson and multi-instrumentalist Oscar Granero, The Lemon Clocks (with help from Dave Dietrich on drums, and Carlos Vigara and Peter Morris on bass), continue their sonic sojourn with their latest full-length studio album, “Abre Los Ojos” (“Open Your Eyes”). This international collaboration consistently deliver some of the finest 60's pop, psychedelic and garage with an overwhelming succession of own songs finished off with a powerful version of “I Need You” by the Kinks. “Cribbing stylistic traits from the psychedelic and progressive rock bands of yore, the Lemon Clocks are as creative and exciting as the artists they reference. They are skilled shapeshifters who thrive on experimentation. Their enthusiasm for the music they play is infectious and designed to transport listeners to other-worldly realms, oozing with mystical and magical moments.” – Beverly Paterson “Their music is a virtual time capsule incorporating elements of bands like The Beatles, The Byrds, The Kinks, Pretty Things, The Grateful Dead, Small Faces, The Great Society, The Electric Prunes, The Easybeats, Status Quo, and dozens of other artists who made the 60s' one of the most exciting decades in pop music. The songs are short, upbeat, and catchy. So slip into a pair of tight hip hugger bell bottoms - preferably lavished with stars and stripes - and a tie-dyed or boldly colored paisley shirt, then kick back and experience the 60s' on your 21st Century sound system. Not progressive rock by any stretch of the imagination - but I can imagine a younger version of myself slipping a handful of quarters into the jukebox for any one of their songs back in the day during the Summer Of Love.” – ProgNaut.com GREAT!! ... read more »

The Lings
Price: $14.00
Artist: The Lings
Description: RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!! The Lings are from the Mantova/Verona region of Italy. Their self-titled release represents their debut offering, and what a fantastic debut it is! Their music is heavily rooted in jangly 60’s garage and pop (and they can crank it up when necessary), and they’re not afraid to let it shine through in their music as they flex their deft understanding of the subtle intricacies that define bonafide garage rock and pop! It’s a fantastic 12 song journey through the teen-beat sounds of the 60's... AND BEYOND! "The Lings play pop music with a good deal of power thrown in. Wanna know why they play pop music? Because they CAN. Wanna know why it’s GREAT pop music? Because they have that kind of INSPIRATION other bands only wish they had. Wanna know why YOU should listen to them? Because their music will take you right back to when you had your first crush, first date, first heartbreak and that kinda stuff. Yes, it’s that pure. Wanna find yourself whistling songs that will stick just because they are simply too good? Then go grab this record!" - Matt Ragazzi “The Lings are a reflection of a reflection, an echo of an echo, a band that is garage-like not because of aping their predecessors, but for the simple way their songs seem to recall the magic that was the 60’s filtered through their lens. They effortlessly weave their dreamy version of 60’s-inspired music with mature songwriting and exquisite production detail. They sound familiar, but not like anyone obvious – a tribute to them!” – Max Humphries GREAT!! ... read more »

The Cartel & I
Price: $14.00
Artist: The Mike Bell Cartel
Description: RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL!! The Helsinki, Finland-based Mike Bell Cartel’s debut album “The Cartel & I” brings out all the best things about 60’s garage rock and pop: guitars chime, the fuzz-box growls, Farfisa howls and the vocal harmonies echo just like the best records of the era. The band's stylish sound was captured on tape at Timmion Studio in Helsinki and mixed to authentic perfection by Liam Watson of Toe Rag Studios, known for his work with Tame Impala, Billy Childish, Supergrass, Madness and The White Stripes among others. The band consists of long-time members of the musical underbelly of Helsinki: Miikka Siira aka Mike Bell (Mike Bell & The Belltones), Pekka Laine (The Hypnomen), Ville Särmä (John’s Children), Samuel Abaijón (The Valkyrians) and Aapee Heinola (Hard Action). Here they come together to bring forth possibly the most melodic, energetic and moody garage of the 2020’s. “The Mike Bell Cartel makes music that could be from California in 1966 in terms of composition, production, and arrangements. All the songs except the title track are written by Siira. The year is important. In 1967, hippie culture and psychedelia began. At the same time, time drove past the original garage rock. ‘The Cartel & I’ is comma-precise in its sound and arrangements so that this odor gap is not exceeded. Guitarist Pekka Laine’s riffs take turns in the spirit of the Rolling Stones’ early white rhythm ’n’ blues, alternately ringing pop like Love or The Byrds. If this record had been released 20 years ago, it would have been found in the record store behind the same garage rock splash as the White Stripes records were found.” – PledgeTimes.com “In my world, this album is a batting practice fastball right thrown belt high. It's so-o-o damn good that my only problem is determining which songs to feature! – Bill Kelly/SiriusXM GREAT!! ... read more »

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!
