The Incurables / Stop The World
Detroit’s The Incurables have released a benefit single, lending aid to United Help Ukraine. A zesty power pop fist-pumper, it’s a track that you’ll always feel energized by. Earnest vocals and punchy guitars propel this one into the stratosphere. Excellent work for a worthy cause. Hats off to these lads!
Bryan Adams / So Happy It Hurts
Nobody does a driving pop song better than Bryan Adams. So Happy It Hurts comes from the album of the same name, and it’s a doozy. Big drums, big guitars and a “Woah Woah” refrain. Adams must be loving life these days, because the gruff-voiced Canadian sounds downright happy. This, is a hit song, folks.
The Pozers / The Only Girl
The Pozers bring us a nifty bit of Beatles-inspired pop, with The Only Girl. Complete with a bouncy Carnaby Street groove and boyish vocals, it’s one of those tracks that’s just begging to be on summer mixtapes (kids, ask the old folks). Their album, Crybaby Bridge, arrived in the mail yesterday, so expect a full review down the line. I like what I hear!!
Kelli Welli / Rainbow Love Song
Boy, if ever we needed a song about love and inclusion, it’s now. Kelli Welli’s Rainbow Love Song, begins with soaring harmonies that instantly heal the weary soul. From her brilliantly-titled release, Robots Don’t Tell Jokes, it’s a great way to get acquainted with her. Although the target audience here is children, older ears will also appreciate the sentiment!
