Kevin Robertson / Love’s Blue Yonder

We don’t just like music from the 80’s here at Pop-A-Looza HQ, we dig the new stuff, too! This nifty video and tune comes via Scotland’s Kevin Robertson, who is also a member of The Vapour Trails. we think Love’s Blue Yonder is top-shelf!

The Vapour Trails

Lonely Man (Futureman)

It’s snowing and blowing here in Wisconsin, so nothing could be more welcome than a shiny dose of jangle pop from The Vapor Trails. “Lonely Man,” from The VT’s upcoming album, is equal parts Rembrandts and Herman’s Hermits, and features a chorus that is both somber and uplifting.

This three-song outing includes “See You In The Next World,” from The VT’s last release, remixed by the always-brilliant Nick Bertling. With a nifty bit of Ringo-influenced drumming and a sitar-laden bridge, it’s simply irresistible to my ears. A quality live cover of George Harrison’s “Something” rounds out the release with a smile and a sigh. Well done, gents.
