The Posies
Frosting On The Beater

Frosting On The Beater is arguably the best album by Seattle power pop stalwarts The Posies. It’s full of blissful guitars, joyful melodies and perfect harmonies.

Alex Chilton
A Man Called Destruction

Following on from his wildly successful stints in the Box Tops and Big Star, Alex Chilton spent his remaining years as a kind of musical troll, constantly switching styles and annoying his audience.

Big Star
9Complete Third: Vol. 2: Roughs To Mixes

The Legal Matters

Conrad is the latest power-pop missive from The Legal Matters: so much melody and such big choruses that you can hardly handle it! And if you really really like the voices of The Legal Matters, boy are you in luck: the vinyl version includes a download code for a vocal-only mix of the whole album! Perfe...view item »

Game Theory
The Big Shot Chronicles

This isn't even the greatest Game Theory album but is still one of the finest most energetic bursts of oddball future thinking power pop seen in the '80s.  Scott Miller and pals had the route to my heart back then and this record contains some of his most direct pop bursts such as 'Erica's Word' and blitzkrieg opener '...view item »

Sam Amidon
But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted

I’ve not seen a title that suggests an interesting story quite so vividly and concisely as this one for quite a while: But This Chicken Proved Falsehearted. Excellent stuff. The record is the 2005 ‘true’ debut of Sam Amidon, and it had never app...view item »

Spain 3-in-1 Value Pack

Do you like Spain? (I mean the band, not the country) Well then you’ll love this bargainous release, which collects the group’s first three records in one nifty 3-in-1 Value Pack.

Big Star
Live In Memphis

Big Star were rock 'n' roll's most spectacular failures, ignored in their time but widely beloved now for their underdog story and inspiring power pop hooks.

Plenty of high points for Big Star are gifted to th...view item »

Harry Dean Stanton
Partly Fiction

Harry Dean Stanton has appeared in so many cool films it's impossible to list them. But he's also a musician you know, and there is a documentary about him, 'Partly Fiction' now, in which he sings and talks about his passion for country and folk music. His voice, we discover, is distinctive and unexpectedly strong. This accompanying album w...view item »

She Haunts My Dreams

Ah, the lovely slowcore of Spain. “She Haunts My Dreams” is their second album, released in 1999. “I’m Leaving You” pulls you in immediately. Josh Haden’s voice sounds like Lou Barlow at his most mellow and the songs have a similar heart-wrenching quality and similar subject matter ...view item »

The Blue Moods Of Spain

In the '90s, for many record companies and music fans, the CD was the format of choice and vinyl was mostly forgotten about. Because of this, none of the Spain albums were originally issued on vinyl.

I queued outside the arena of the Reading Festival in 1992 for ages, still don’t know what caused the hold up, but I wanted to see Jellyfish who were first on the main stage that day. I missed them, and got in just in time to see Madder Rose. I do remember hearing the insane...view item »

Big Star
Nothing Can Hurt Me
