Rose Melberg & Dustin Reske - The Love We Could Have Had
A dream duet come true. Rose Melberg and Dustin Reske (Rocketship) together on a fuzzy, melancholy little pop song.
Robert Pollard - Edison’s Memos
Finally delving deeper into GBV backlog/ Robert Pollard’s. There is just so much… and so many great pop tunes.
Camera Obscura - Number One Son
Stephen Malkmus - Jo Jo’s Jacket
Pretty weird but really catchy Malkmus tune.
Sonic Youth - Reena
This and Incinerate are such good tracks. Maybe some of Sonic Youth’s poppiest material?
The Thrills - I Came All This Way
Teenager is full of nods to old pop groups, most immediate of which is The Beach Boys. Full of great harmonies and incredibly catchy hooks The Thrills created a great album. I’ve had this since high school and have never forgotten it. I guess it kind of went under the radar for a lot of people but it deserves some serious attention. Sometimes folky sounding, sometimes britpop, but always on point. A solid listen.
Weezer - Mykel and Carli
A little Weezer to kick off the weekend.
The Ergs! - Pray For Rain
Maybe I should just post the entire album, because it is a pop gem. This was my August album.
"When I get back home, I’ll be alone again"
Luna - Speedbumps
Luna makes me think of Autumn…
