MP3: J.P. McClain & the Intruders - Just Another Pop Song
MP3: Secrets - Get Your Radio
MP3: Scott McCarl - I Think About You
NOTE: Today's contribution comes from Matt Giordano, who is probably missed around these parts more than constant updates. Fuck yeah!
Well, with a slight aside from their fantastic Eccentric Soul series, the Numero Group has delivered yet another true gem, this time in the world of power-pop with Titan: It's All Pop!. Just as the title suggests, this compilation is the entire catalogue of the short-lived Titan label, plus almost two dozen later tracks with their associated acts. A must-have, either for yourself or as a gift for the music lover in your life.

MP3: Abe Vigoda - Don't Lie
It's the make over nobody asked for: in less than year's time, Abe Vigoda return with their most defining and rewarding work yet, in an ep titled "Reviver". A strange title and concept, considering this is a band that sounded near fucking perfect on last year's "Skeleton", but when music gets changed up to something this good, there is no reason what so ever to complain.
This ep leaked hard, and it's a testament to this band's popularity when you can do a Google search to download the thing. That's great that they're highly in demand and enjoyed so much, they really deserve it. Abe Vigoda seems to work hard and have a blast in what they do, which is so goddamn rare to find in music these days. I hope that this ep and these dudes set the standard of the year in music and general niceness.
Thanks for the treat guys, we don't deserve it.
The "Reviver" ep sees release February 17th from Post Present Medium.

MP3: The Replacements - Alex Chilton
MP3: The Replacements - Nightclub Jitters
I'd say we're long overdue for a post, don't you think? With the stress of the holidays, a broken computer and drowning at work, I fell behind and I am sorry. We're beyond looking back at a year that was and totally into looking forward at the year that's yet to be. With 2009 started up, I figured what a time to say hello and get back in the groove.
I got the Rhino reissue of "Pleased to Meet Me" by the Replacements with a X-Mas giftcard and it's been my current jam. Say hello to an old friend or introduce yourself to a new one by downloading it. See you sooner than later friends (aka maybe tomorrow).
