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.

Finally delving deeper into GBV backlog/ Robert Pollard’s. There is just so much… and so many great pop tunes.

Stephen Malkmus - Jo Jo's Jacket

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

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.
