  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!


****THIS ONE IS TOP OF THE POPS***** I have put this one in my top 10 best power pop cds for 2007! The Afternoons are from Cardiff, England and this cd is a Spanish import that includes one "Hit" after another. Rarely does one album have this many great songs. Strong melodies, and songs that stick in your head like glue are what The Afternoons do best. The band's sound is very diverse and if members of The Left Banke, Beatles, The Cars, and The Ramones got together, it might sound like this. A true original..real strings, real brass, synths, fuzz guitars, jangly guitars , gentle, and powerful sounds, and even the kitchen sink thown in for good measure!! GRADE A!!!! *****

  New 2008 release from the amazing British power pop band that sound likes The Cars, Teenage Fanclub, The Pooh Sticks, but more than anything , they sound like themselves! Another wonderful cd from a band you can trust to deliver the goods! Grade A

  Back in stock (limited quantities) The JACK AND THE BEANSTALK mainman pays his homeage to all his fans playing songs the draw from The Kinks, The Byrds, The Beatles, and more. This is getting harder to find so grab it while you can.

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!

The new Jam release by PHIL ANGOTTI is here! "EAST SIDE SOUL" is one of his strongest efforts to date complete with his full band "THE IDEA", the album covers everything from his rock and roll to his sublime pastoral sounds. Fans of The Bealtes, Left Banke, Bob Dylan, and the Bee Gees(pre disco era) will *love* this cd. Phil delivers one heart felt tune after another. This is a full blown cd with pristeen production and the occasional use of real orchestration: strings, piano, flute etc... "EAST SIDE SOUL" is a powerpop manifesto just waiting for your ears to hear. GRADE A for awesome!

  On this blessed new release, Phil Angotti does all cover songs by the Fab Four and pays tribute to his biggest heros! John, Paul, George, and Ringo would be proud if they heard this one! Highly Recommended


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

ANYTIME, ANYWAVE (compilation) - Vol 1 +2 plus
  Great tracks from Shambles, Champagne, The Wakes, Protones, Pyramidiacs, Happy Losers, Monotors, Farrah, Feedbacks, and more! 18 tracks of power pop fun!

  (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

The AUTUMNS - THE AUTUMNS +3 (Japan Import)
  MY FAVORITE ALBUMS OF THEIRS. IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD THEM: START WITH THIS ONE! (JAPANESE IMPORT WITH BONUS TRACKS! The Autumns are one of California's best kept Shoegaze/dreampop secrets. Imagine if Jeff Buckley sang in a Shoegaze band. Imagine the Cure jamming good with Sigur Ros. The band is orchestral with very tender vocals and a wall of distorted guitars waiting to jump out of the shadows at any given moments. This is a beautiful, gentle, abrasive, dynamic cd. If you have never heard this wonderful band...this is the best place to start. Songs like "Wish Stars" and "Wonderful, wonderful" are so amazing that if you can't feel the impact--you just aren't human! Grade A* (japan import)

  Another great cd from this uniquely passionate band that is not so easy to pin down. Are they alternative, progressive, emo, shoegaze, indie,or pop? Does it really matter? I don't think so. Great music is great music. And this band makes moving music that is both gentle, harsh, and beautiful all at the same time. The vocals are high and melodic in the same way of Sigur Ros...and yet they are not like that band. I have yet to hear a band that sounds like the AUTUMNS. A true American original. ***This is a JAPANESE import which contains 4 BONUS TRACKS not available elsewhere! GRADE A
