A Global Army of Veteran Rockers
Have Gun Will Travel - Postcards from the Friendly City (these guys are just terrific!!!!)
Decemberists - The King is Dead
Rumer - Seasons of My Soul
Manic Street Preachers - Postcards from a Young Man (released in '10, purchased in '11)
Really glad to see there is a new Army Navy album.
I will be checking that out soon.....
pplist you just created a rabid Asteroid No. 4 fan over here, and I'd never heard of them before.
Thanks. Great stuff.
I'm still thinking it's too early for a list, but thanks for reminding me about that Asteroid #4 record. I liked it a lot when it came out and it kind of fell out of rotation. Will be playing it again shortly!
No particular order but somewhat of a power pop bent:
Frank Turner - England Keep My Bones
The Red Button - As Far As Yesterday Goes
Tommy Keene - Behind The parade
Smithereens - 2011
Boston Spaceships - Let It Beard
Sally Crewe & The Sudden Moves -- Transmit/Receive (its an EP, but WTF)
Ha Ha Tonka -- -Death of a Decade
Black Joe Lewis & the Honey Bears -- Scandalous
Those Darlins - Screws Get Loose
Wild Flag - s/t
Barry, really great to see Sally Crewe and the Sudden Moves on there, I haven't heard her record yet, but she was our opening act for the Tommy Keene show up here last month and she just absolutely killed it.
Reminded me a big of (another great chick-fronted Brit band) the Joy Formidable.
But it's REALLY great to see Smithereens 2011 on here...I've seen some others mention it in here but I'm only checking it out right now....sounds like they just jumped in 20 years later (notwithstanding all the cool intervening cover albums) and just hit right in stride!
