Thanks for this-I had stopped with Circuloir Sounds, sounds like I should pick this up too.

Sure it's a couple of years old, but I recently posted this one, plus a couple of free and legal downloadables.

The Big Cats

Beware, theres a act of the same name.

I am referring to these guys here:

I can only speak so far for the album The Ancient Art of Leaving: Two Parts so far, but it so great that I'm kinda bummed they were able to escape my notice this long ;<)

one of the best new power pop guys I have heard in recent years - Mr. Kurt Baker! He has three albums and a bunch of videos on youtube. He reminds me of a cross between early Elvis Costello and early Joe Jackson (does that mean he sounds like The Jags? ha ha. maybe.) You can stream his new album and, more imprtantly, BUY it here:

One of my favorite albums of 2012. Give it a listen, won't ya?

The new Sun Sawed in 1/2 album is now available! The Sun was on Not Lame for it's past three albums and now unveils their first album in a decade. Check it out.

Sheeit, I'm the co-founder of this site and I totally forgot to post this info here:   should have posted info on this here last week when it came out as all 500 copies are now gone and it's sold out.

If you aren't aware of it, check out POP GEEK HEAVEN, another site I started(bsides this one w/ Jon).  It's totally free and there's 2,500 members there.  

Just posted a righteous digi-comp for January - download it for free(the quirk is that you have be a member to view the content there but, again, it's free to join...):

Been through the EP twice--it is EXCELLENT.  I predict it will the first entry on Harry's 2013 Top Ten.

Comment by Stan Schwieger on January 10, 2013 at 5:25pm

Just listened to the samples, and plunking down Coin. Can't wait!

Comment by Brad Beard on January 10, 2013 at 2:45pm

HI folks, want to hear some great pop, from a international Music Collective I'm part of, The Maladaptive Solution, with Michael Carpenter, and Mick Giblin, and others.  Great hooky songs, and a great cover.  More to come.

The Maladaptive Solution

Let me know what you think
