  Just when you least expect it, along comes one of the very *best* power cds of the year. AERIAL is what I am talking about. This band has all the needed ingredients in tact in order to deliver a "top of the pops" cd. The vocal harmonies at wonderful, the tunes are catchy, the guitars rock and jangle away with great delight, and the song arrangements are tight and intelligent!! This is a perfect cd which meets somewhere down the road between FOUNTAINS OF WAYNE and TEENAGE FANCLUB! GRADE A Top pick!

  (SPANISH IMPORT) From Cardiff in the UK. This is one of England's finest power pop bands. Fans of Dodgy, Oasis, Bronco Bullfrog, Orgone Box, Farrah, The Junipers, etc... add THE AFTERNOONS to your list of ESSENTIAL and current BRIT-POP that should be in your collection. This is probably their best cd, so start with this one! GRADE A

American Suitcase - Bluefoot
  OUT OF PRINT!!! ONLY 1 copy in stock That's it!!!!!! (IMPORT) This cd continues to be a Jam bestseller and for very good reason!!!One of the best cds in this catalog. American suitcase is a band that draws heavily from later period Teenage Fanclub and of course the Byrds!!!. The harmonies are superb and the songs are all excellent. Jangle pop of the highest order! Beautiful sounding music!!!! A+

American Suitcase - Summerman
  BACK IN STOCK ONCE AGAIN.THIS POWER POP CD continues to sell out!!! This is super kool NORWEGIAN POWER POP! This is a very psychedelic cd with beautiful vocal harmonies that deliver the goods. American Suitcase reminds me of an updated version of the Byrds in their classic era without being a clone!!! Also I can hear some Merrymakers production in the mix to further enhance the audio experience! American Suitcase has their own charming sound which captures that Jingle Jangle fan, but this time on this release we find a bit more experimentation. In conclusion, this is a very lovely cd and I give it a full thumbs up! Get it!!! (Limited Copies)

PHIL ANGOTTI - Afternoon Balloon

This is Phil Angotti and the Idea's 3rd and very hard to find release (and alone being worth the price of admission. On that cut, a Sgt. Pepper its one of the best!) The title track vibe radiates with tasteful use of strings etc..! The band branches out on this release covering a wide range of classic power pop stylings. From rock to baroque,this cd soothes the soul. The wonderful pure pop vocals of Phil Angotti tie everything together. Bottom line: Great power pop from Illinios! Grade A

PHIL ANGOTTI - Juliette Foster Soundtrack

We recently found a very limited number of copies of this wonderful Jam release that has long been OUT OF PRINT and is HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE. This time around Phil scores a home run by creating a truly beautiful dream pop cd. Fans of Left Banke, Nick Drake, Duncan Browne, Colin Blunstone, and of course, the Beatles are going to love this disc. The sound is loaded with real life cellos, violins, acoustic guitars, and superb vocals. Rarely can an artist make an acoustic dominated cd that retains such a vibrant energy. Phil has done just that. The musical arrangements are brilliant and sound truly sublime! And most importantly, Phil has got one of the BEST pop voices on the planet! Be sure to pick this up!

NEW RELEASE FOR 2011. Phil Angotti is back with a wonderful new power pop cd which is sure to please all the fans. Phil Angotti is in classic form on "PEOPLE AND PLACES" with a full band called the LAZY APPLE ORCHESTRA. The classic power pop (guitar,bass,and drums) lineup is further enhanced with the addition of instruments such as violin, cello, trumpet,piano, organ,steel guitar, etc.. This expanded lineup makes this the most 60's sounding release by PHIL ANGOTTI to date... echoing vibrations of classic Left Banke, BEATLES, Zombies, early Todd Rundgren..and more! The disc is further enhanced by the appearance of power pop luminaries such as BRAD ELVIS on the drums. THIS IS GRADE A POP >Fans of the 60's sound will not be disappointed..there are plenty of good vibrations to be found on this wonderful new release. ***In other pop news... Phil has he also replaced the late Jim Ellison in the recently reformed MATERIAL REISSUE! Phil joins the original members to pay tribute to this wonderful power pop band. Catch them live if you can!

NEW RELEASE: JUNE 2013 Chicago power pop is alive and well! Power pop veteran PHIL ANGOTTI has just released his 10th full length cd! ...and his consistently great sound and style is fully intact. At times PHIL sounds like the near cousin of MATERIAL ISSUE front man Jim Ellison. But most of all PHIL is a huge BEATLE-Maniac...and that traditional sound has permanently fused it's way into his music. Songs like "I might come back" for example sounds like it was lifted straight off the "REVOLVER" LP by the fab four. Of the 12 new songs here..one is a remake "TOO LATE TOMORROW" The original version was great but perhaps PHIL has improved the audio on this track, taking it up a notch! Great songs either way, you can't go wrong here. The album is a nice mix of rockers "-- I see spaceships" and ballads ---" Goodbye Never Said" This disc sports a cool variety of sounds and styles...never boring and always mixing up the pace. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

  Great new cd on BLINDSPOT records. *BLINDSPOT* is Bart Mendoza's record label and he plays on this album...so already we know we're into something really good! Now on with the review. THE ANNA TROY BAND is great! I recently saw them live in Los Angeles, so I know what I'm talking about. This is the real deal. A real power pop/rocking/bluesy band that has a great female leader who can belt it out like a Joan Jett, or a Pat Benatar! The songs are catchy...the guitar playing superb! Production is sublime! If you enjoy female fronted rock bands this is an absolute must! One of the world's best and brightest new talents! Grade A

  (UK IMPORT) With bands like BIG STAR covering "Sugar Sugar" and LOLAS doing "Feeling so Good" There is something to be said about the enduring power generated by this "fictional band". For fans of sweet innocent power pop...this is your ticket. 24 songs in all...covering all the hits and more!!!Yesterday's sounds...sounding ever better today!

  If you love 60's sunshine pop, you *really* need to check out Canada's best kept pop secret ARMSTRONG!!! They sound like so many of those 60's bands!With song titles like "SUNSHINE FEELING" it is obvious that this band is upbeat pop. They take their cues from bands like THE ORANGE PEELS, SIMON AND GARFUNKLE, THE CYRKLE, EDWARDS HAND, THE YELLOW BALLOON, THE MILLENIUM, THE ASSOCIATION, SAGITARIOUS,and more! Highly recommended to all fans of the genre! It's very nice music!

  (GERMAN IMPORT) Great 60's mod/ beat/ Brit-invasion/ garage/ nuggets box set sound from this wonderful quintet that is an all out 60's revival manifesto! Great fun and a blast to listen to! Kinks, Who, Beatles, and Stones fans...This is just what the doctor ordered!!! Grade A


(ARGENTINA IMPORT) Here's a new one for 2013 and it's power pop from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Don't be misled by the bands name...There are no "screaming voices" found anywhere in the music. Quite the contrary, BABY SCREAM produce some very nice sounding power pop on their "Secret Place" cd. There are bands that come to mind with which to compare...CHRIS RICHARDS AND THE SUBTRACTIONS, THE HAPPY LOSERS (from Spain),... Swedish power pop bands such as The WANNADIES, DORIAN GRAY, BRAINPOOL, and FAVORITA. The key here is a treble vocal style found in all of the above bands. (This is often a pop trademark dating back to the fab four) Nice vocals, layers of guitar, bass and drums...make the sound quite classic and easy to enjoy. They have their own sound which makes it all the better and a winner on it's own. If you want to hear the latest on the Argentina power pop scene, BABY SCREAM is a great place to begin! Keep a look out for this one.
