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 »

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."

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 »

Summer Of Love EP
Price: $8.00
Artist: Diesel Park West
Description: OFFICIALLY SANCTIONED CD ISSUE OF PREVIOUSLY DOWNLOAD-ONLY RELEASE AVAILABLE EXCLUSIVELY FROM KOOL KAT! It’s been a few years, but Diesel Park West are back with their latest effort! This time out, in celebration of the 50th anniversary of 1967 - “The Summer of Love” - they’ve delivered a tribute where they, in their usual classy style, brilliantly cover four of their favorite classics from that magical year. The “Summer of Love” was an extraordinary moment in history - a hedonistic blast of glamour, ecstasy, and Utopianism that drew 75,000 young people to the streets of San Francisco in 1967. Played live in the studio, these are their collective touchstones of songs from that year – songs they've played in rehearsals or jams right from the beginning - Jefferson Airplane’s “Somebody To Love”, Arthur Lee/Love’s “Alone Again Or”, Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth (Revisited)”, and The Youngbloods’ “Let’s Get Together”!

No Room For Squares
Price: $14.00
Artist: Green Circles
Description: NEW RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT LABEL! Stick around long enough and you end up with enough odds and sods for an album. Well this is such an album for Australian garage/psych rockers Green Circles who’ve been around since 1998 and are still active! Demos from the original line up way back when, tunes recorded specifically for compilations, alternative mixes and a couple of unreleased live tunes. Every conceivable line-up is involved. Even Dave who recorded our first demos and sang on the first album. He’ll be playing on a new album real soon. Here’s a track by track breakdown by Mark Gilbert: “ ‘Stephanie Comes’ - released on our first album, and one we’ve loved and needed a second listen. We’re still trying to write these kind of pastoral psych tunes. ‘Long Live Sivananda’ - Although this tune ended up on our third album, this is the first recorded version which appeared on the ‘Tomorrow Is Today: A Tribute To The Australian Psychedelic Scene 1966-1970’ compilation. Written and recorded by Adelaide band, Inside Looking Out, we were honoured to have original member and Barry Adamson play on this with us. ‘Let Me Through’ - Another one we recorded twice. This version was recorded first and appeared on ‘Burn Your Fingers On The Sun’ which was apt, because it was hot the day we recorded this. Our buddy, and honoury Green Circle, Jamie Woollaway appeared on keys using an amp formerly used by that fantastic Adelaide band, Fraternity. ‘1969’ – A stonking version of for the ‘Now I Wanna Be Your Stooge’ tribute release. To our eternal joy, when this was first played on radio, someone rang up to ask if this was an early version by the Stooges. We’ve taken some liberties, new lyrics and an intro with harp! ‘A Taste of Black’ - Deserves a new listen. A tune from the first album and one of the few tunes to feature our original line up. ‘Flown’ – An alternate mix that didn’t make the ‘Mr Cocking’s Descent’ album. ‘Tomorrow Will Be Fine’ - We were dead chuffed to be asked to participate in the ‘Happy Men’ Sunny Boys (one of our absolute favourite Australian bands tribute album. The song was the B-side of their first single back in 1981. ‘Girl in A Morris Minor’ - Our first tune ever released, and it wasn’t even in released in our country! ‘Signed GC’ - Who was GC? We’ve always loved Gene Clark, maybe it’s us? Maybe Arthur Lee knows. This one has drums which the final version didn’t. ‘Kneejerk Reaction’ (live) - Well, this is what we sound like. Originally appeared on ‘Tomorrow Is Today: A Tribute To The Australian Psychedelic Scene 1966-1970’. ‘Five Blue Moons’ - The only recordings we have of this line up are some 2013 live recordings made very early on in that line up’s history. ‘Dirty Taste’ - Southwark Bitter in cans, local bands and SANFL football. These are some of our favourite things. This is about what sort of conscience one has – money or tradition, bright lights and circus or tradition. Or, it’s about grumpy men of a certain age who don’t like change. It made us feel better anyway. ‘Elevator Operator’ and ‘It’s Too Late’ - These two songs sum us up perfectly. We started with a love of Gene Clark and the Small Faces. We’re not different now from these demos we recorded in 1999.” Despite the disparity in the time frame these songs were recorded, the disc flows extremely well! GREAT!! ... read more »

Circus Of Mirth
Price: $9.00
Artist: Heirs Of Fortune
Description: Terry Carolan’s (Blue Cartoon/True Hearts) latest hook-filled project is a tribute to a long lost friend and supporter. He explains the story behind “Circus Of Mirth” – “In 1974-75, Ralph Smith, Robert Watkins and Gary Heslin were the core of the band Amnesia in Tampa, Florida. I joined the band for about six months. Later, in 1976, Robert Woodrich, Gary Heslin, and I formed Just Boys. While in Amnesia, I met Gary Littleton, and our friendship, association and collaboration spanned decades. Gary became a fan of Amnesia, especially Ralph Smith’s songwriting, and it was at an Amnesia show that I first met him. Later, when I formed Just Boys, he became a spokesperson, sometimes benefactor and general cheerleader for the band, as he had with Amnesia. But in 1977, Littleton upped the ante by instigating and funding the recording sessions for the Just Boys single, and working with me to form Counterfeit Records for its release. From that time on, Gary became a key figure in many of my musical endeavors, as well as a close friend and a music fan who shared an essentially religious devotion to pop music with me, Ralph Smith and other like-minded people. Gary's interest and support for the music Ralph and I created never wavered. It is those years, and events within them, that are the inspiration for the ‘Circus Of Mirth’ album. In 2015 Ralph and I decided to collaborate on some recordings, and this collaboration brought Gary back into our thoughts, and reminded us of how supportive he had been to both Ralph and myself as songwriters. As our collaboration grew from the few songs we originally intended, to a full album, both of us knew the album should tell the story of Littleton's role in our musical lives, in a quiet and subtle way. We were joined by Robert Woodrich and Robert Watkins, and Heirs Of Fortune was born. It is intentional that the album's first song is ‘Invited’, an Amnesia recording from 1974 that has never before been released. Likewise, that the album is closed by an excerpt from Blue Cartoon's ‘If I Could Do It All Over Again’, the first song I recorded with the band while I was a member. These songs bookend the span of time and events that Gary was so much a part of. Gary Littleton was, in many ways, a contributor to our collective musical endeavors spanning more than thirty years. We were very fortunate for Gary’s help and friendship. We were indeed, Heirs Of Fortune, and Gary really was The Ringmaster of the ‘Circus Of Mirth’.”“A striking debut that couples heritage pop rock inspirations with modern strokes, resulting in a collection of tunes smacking of a timeless quality. Songs dripping with catchy melodies and hummable choruses will never date, and the band delivers these gripping elements in spades. Smooth and polished, but salted with an organic feel stemming straight from the heart and gut, tracks like the sweeping flourishes of ‘Aster Street Days’ and the poignant pulsations of ‘Goodbye My Friend’ twinkle and sparkle with a sense of longing surrounded by bracing George Harrison styled riffs. Bolstered by a curtain of gospel flavored harmonies, ‘Shine’ and the infectious pull of ‘How Can I Resist’ step in as further highlights, as well as a faithful cover of Big Star’s Chris Bell’s ‘I Am The Cosmos’ and the jaunty vaudeville romp of ‘Invited’. Layers of gorgeous keyboard passages, incorporated with tugging guitar dynamics and crisp and fresh vocals pierce every cut on this impeccably executed recording. Aside from doing a great job of keeping the power popping soul of celebrated bands such as Badfinger, Raspberries, Pilot and the aforementioned Big Star alive, Heirs Of Fortune streak their material with their own star-studded strengths. Flowing and fizzing with expressive emotions and sonic beauty, ‘Circus Of Mirth’ checks in as an album primed for repeated spins!” – ItsPsychedelicBaby.com GREAT!! ... read more »

Crash Through Or Crash
Price: $10.00
Artist: Shake Some Action!
Description: On their latest release, Shake Some Action! have fired up the Rickenbackers, turned the jangleboxes up to 11 and cranking the Fenders till the tubes turned a fiery red . . .and they show no signs of slowing down ten years into their career. They recently hit the pages of Billboard for the first time when their single “The Only Way Is Up” made #18 on the global Spotify Viral 50 chart, making it one of the most listened-to songs on the planet. With the release of “Crash Through Or Crash”, their 6th long player, the only way is up indeed. The fresh swagger of the aforementioned lead single has plenty of competition for attention with the signature Rickenbacker jangle of “Waiting For The Sun”, the Kinks-influenced snarl of “Secrets and Lies”, while the soulful “Shine A Light” and psychedelic haze of “Circle of the Sun” reveal new sides of the band that will please fans both old and new alike. “Armed with two Rickenbacker guitars and endless harmonies, SSA! is a bunch of unabashed pop classicists, bringing to mind 70’s power pop but the heyday of jangle-pop in the 80’s, from the REM ringing of the guitars to the Robyn Hitchpock edge delivery from singer songwriter James Hall. Guitars and harmonies like this always sound so good.” – AllMusic.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 »

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 »

Dana & Carl Present: This Is Rock 'n' Roll Radio Volume 4
Price: $15.00
Artist: Various Artists
Description: NEW RELEASE ON THE KOOL KAT MUSIK LABEL! We’re thrilled once again to be involved with Dana and Carl and to be able to present the latest volume of “This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio”! With that, we’re gonna hand the mic to one of the show’s co-hosts, Carl Cafarelli, who sums it up best! “Me? Badfinger,man. I owe it all to Badfinger. Oh sure, there were others, before and after, but nothing epitomizes the rush of pure pop radio, rock ‘n’ roll radio, more than Badfinger. ‘No Matter What.’ ‘Day After Day.’ ‘Baby Blue.’ And, just as importantly, hearing the DJ on WOLF-AM in Syracuse saying these guys sound like The Beatles! as the latest Badfinger triumph filled the airwaves. With that, I understood the magic of radio. Guess I got what I deserved. Love of radio is what continues to inspire ‘This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio with Dana & Carl’. When Dana came up with thei dea of teaming up for a weekly radio show, the offer was too enticing to resist. Who can resist magic? I remember learning about The Kinks and Chuck Berry on AM radio. AM radio was one of the best parts of making me who I am today. Free-form FM offered even more possibilities. Hey, why not combine the two? Dana and I wanted to do that. On Sunday nights, we try to pay it back. If you were ever a kid, ear pressed to the radio, breathlessly waiting for the DJ to play The Grass Roots or The Hollies, or Bowie, or The Sex Pistols, then do we ever have a show for you. This latest ‘This Is Rock ‘n’ Roll Radio’ compilation continues our dedication to the joy of radio. The joy of radio! Dana coined the phrase years ago, and I can’t sumup our goals any better’n that. We’ve always been buoyed by the support of our listeners, and by our belief in the artists we love. PopCo-Op formed through ‘TIRnRR’, the members originally connecting through our show’s online community, and ‘You Don’t Love Me Anymore’ was one of the first tracks we solicited for this set. Our friend Ray Paul got together with his pal Terry Draper of Klaatu to craft an irresistible new track called ‘I Need Your Love Tonight.’ New friends Circe Link & Christian Nesmith agreed to let us use a track from their limited-edition release ‘The Pop EP’, and our buds in Vegas With Randolph surprised us by joining forces with our other bud Lannie Flowers on a brand-new rockin’ confection called ‘The Weekend’s Coming.’ We somehow hoodwink…er, interested Keith Klingensmith, one of my longest-standing online amigos, into the idea of covering a sublime Gary Frenay song called ‘Make Something Happen.; Gary previously recorded the tune with both Screen Test and The Flashcubes, and it’s just cried out for someone - Marshall Crenshaw! The Monkees! - to cover it to greater notoriety. Pop stalwart P. Hux and new pop fave Irene Peña gave us tracks from their respective catalogs, and Michael Oliver blew us away with a new song that should be playing on every radio station in the country right now. I’ve been a fan of The Rubinoos since my senior year in high school, and their presence on this set thrills me beyond my ability to articulate. Once and future Spongetone Jamie Hoover’s combo Stepford Knives makes its CD debut here, alongside a stunning new remix of a German B-side by New Jersey’s The Grip Weeds. My former Goldmine magazine colleague John Borack is represented with his group Popdudes, performing Torbjorn Petersson’s lovely ‘She Is Funny (In That Way’. Ronnie Dark offered a track from his OOP album ‘Irkville Road’. The Flashcubes, my all-time favorite power pop group, gave us the long-lost4-track recording of their greatest song, ‘No Promise.’ Chris von Sneidern (now a Flamin’ Groovie) provides an incredible tribute to the halcyon days of the Syracuse new scene that forged us, and The Bottle Kids bring a swell unreleased track that was the first thing we wanted for this volume, even before we had any specific plan to do a Volume 4. ‘Your Own World’ by 1.4.5. was TIRnRR’s #1 most-played track in 2016. The Smithereens and Paul Collins’ Beat have been on our wish list for years, as has the unreleased, irresistible ‘Best Of Me’ by The Hit Squad. I first heard The Rulers’ ace tribute song ‘I Want My Ramones Records Back on…MySpace?! Well...! It took us this long to track it down. The Legal Matters’ stunning take on Teenage Fanclub’s ‘Don’t Look Back’ makes its CD debut here, and Maura & the Bright Lights - the Syracuse superstar mash-up of The Kennedys and Screen Test — make their CD debut here, with a song co-written by Maura Kennedy and local legend B. D. Love (who also harmonizes with John Wicks of The Records on this one). And then there’s Lisa Mychols! Brothers and sisters, we adore Lisa Mychols more than mere words could ever convey. The collection concludes with ‘Home On The Radio by Mr. Encrypto & the Cyphers, a call to arms for anyone and everyone who has ever believed in the magic and the joy of radio. Do you believe? We do. Something much too good to be untrue. We offer you this set of tunes as illustration and celebration of that belief, that faith in the redemptive power of song, and the communal transcendence of listening to that music together. Welcome home. There is just no place like home. This is what rock ‘n’ roll sounds like on Sunday nights in Syracuse each week.” A portion of the proceeds benefit Spark Syracuse, the community radio home of TIRnRR! GREAT!! ... read more »
