IN STOCK! For the past decade New Orleans based songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Joe Adragna has been a very busy man. He began his career under The Junior League moniker releasing the albums “Catchy” in 2006, “Smile Shoot Smile” in 2009, “Fall Back” in 2010 and 2013’s “You Should Be Happy”. He also moonlights as a member of the band The Minus 5, the pop collective headed by Scott McCaughey. He has also lent his talents as a drummer for Boz Boorer and the Bozmen and also for New Orleans' psych pop group Bipolaroid. His new record (and Kool Kat label debut) as The Junior League, “Also Rans”, continues his run of catchy pop rock, with contributions from talented collaborators like the aforementioned McCaughey (The Minus 5, Young Fresh Fellows, REM), Jay Ferguson (Sloan), Boz Boorer (The Polecats, Morrissey), Deni Bonet (Robyn Hitchcock, REM), and J. Murphy (Thee Shambles). The record was recorded largely at his home studio, with contributions from aforementioned friends recorded at their respective home studios. The record moves from the Beatlesque pop of the title track, and “A Dagger and A Kiss” to the autumnal “The Stars In Our Eyes”; the Who-like blast of “Before You Go” to the sunshine pop of “Please (I Need You To)”; the hazy afternoon psych of “Broken and Mine” to the garage-y “If It’s You”; the dreamy “Disappearing Act” to the country folk stomp of “Smarter Than That”; the punky pop of “I Hope You’re Sorry Now” to the sad strings of “The Long Goodbye”. The record also showcases Joe’s pure love of pop rock history, paying homage to his influences while never aping them. “There’s no such thing as eating too much candy, figuratively speaking, for singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Joe Adragna. who is s a dedicated pop acolyte whose work brims over with passion for the genre’s great artisans” -Alison Fensterstock/nola.com “He might be the next best thing to Marshall Crenshaw in terms of his similar vocal and musical styles.” – AbsolutePowerPop.com “Adragna has found the perfect outlet for his pop obsessions in The Junior League, whose songs echo all the usual suspects — the Beatles, Big Star, the Smiths — not through direct reference, but with nascent traits of these bands bubbling up from his DNA.” - Alex V. Cook/225 Magazine COMES WITH AN EXCLUSIVE 5-SONG BONUS DISC FEATURING “EVERYBODY WANTS TO PLAY”, “A MATTER OF TIME”, “FALL FOR ME”, “DIGITAL CAMERA” (ALL RECORDED DURING THE SESSIONS FOR “ALSO RANS”, AND “WHAT DO YOU KNOW” (A COVER OF A LEFT BANKE SONG)! GREAT!!!!
