Eric Sorenson's Jangle On for May 2009 - I must have discovered this disc on CD Baby about the same time that Bruce Brodeen added the disc to the Not Lame online catalog. In the genre of jangle-pop, this is an early contender for CD of the Year! The disc features seventeen songs – none longer than 3:13 – by the pop trio of John and Joe Nowik and Hugh Murphy. Murphy’s Rickenbacker 12-string and Rickenbacker 6-string guitar riffs chime and ring throughout the songs – so much so, that it’s probably unrealistic to choose a favorite track. The clever jewel case graphics include "Nutrition Facts" that cite 100% teenage angst, two part harmony, hooks and melodies, Rickenbackers and background harmonies...and 0% long guitar solos, drum solos, wordy message songs, loud angry vocals and rap and talking. Long may you run, Sirs John, Joe and Hugh.
Tony Johns, a long time fan - THIS IS THE CD FOR THE SUMMER OF 2009 !!! THIS CD IS LIKE TAKING A TIME MACHINE BACK TO 1965 ! THIS IS CRUISING MUSIC ! This CD is for anyone who wonders what it must have been like to put the top down and blast the radio while driving around on a warm summer night ! THIS IS MUSIC THAT WILL MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU WILL LIVE FOREVER !!! No one in modern music has the courage or guts to put out a CD so unabashedly, unapologetically, POP !!! This is not the fake pop of Beyonce or Britney, this is the REAL POP of the Beatles, Hollies, Searchers, and Beach Boys ! This sounds like a collection of the best hits of 1965 AM radio ! THIS IS TIMELESS MUSIC !!! It will sound just as good 100, 200, or 500 years from now !! THIS IS TRULY REAL POP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
