This sorry old world could use a few good, up-tempo pop songs to make us feel better, and, boy, does this new one from The Vapors fill the bill. The band is sounding fit as ever on this fine bit of power pop; a little fuzzy around the edges, poppin’ drum beat and boyish vocals. From the stellar new album of the same name.
With background vocals stacked high enough to make Mutt Lange blush, The Dixie Chicks, now shortened to The Chicks, unleash one of the finest singles of their career. Natalie Maines is in fine voice and is pulling exactly zero punches. Set fists on “pump.”
It’s Karma It’s Cool
Our Love Is An Amplifier
Another one getting a lot of spins here at Pop-A-Looza HQ is the lead-off track from It’s Karma It’s Cool’s latest long-player, Woke Up In Hollywood. We love pop songs that are a bit left-of-center, and Our Love Is An Amplifier sits somewhere between Mitch Easter and Robyn Hitchcock. Nifty.
