Dave Rave’s Ageless Power Pop

Dave Rave – “Anne Marie” mp3

Here’s a tasty bite of rock candy from Canadian power pop treasure, Dave Rave. Favorably recalling The Byrds, The Who and The Flaming Groovies, this is timeless guitar driven fun. If I didn’t peek at the release date, I honestly would never have been able to guess when this was recorded. Within the last year, kittins. Brand new, came out in June of 2010. The heart of power pop is beating strong. Thank you, Dave Rave and crew. “Anne-Marie” is a gr8, classic sounding single.

Fraze Gang’s Epic Hair Band Revival

Fraze Gang, “Juggernaut” (play)

Once in Jr. High this disco kitty sez to me, “you like that hard rock sh!t, huh?” But yes, I did. Fraze Gang is a trio who loves them some 80’s glam – the kind whose tour buses ran exclusively on hair spray and whiskey. This is a fun track of the sort we never thought we’d hear again. But what is old is new, and what is new is old in pop, and here is the ghost of hair bands past in fine form. It’s a kick to hear this kind of epic guitar work and redonkulous rawk singing in 2010. So in best my David Lee Roth I say.. Enjooiiiiyy!!!
