The Mice - For Almost Ever Scooter

Please download this album. "The Mice" are a power pop punk band from 80s Ohio. This album is a collection of their first EP and first LP. Then they broke up.

Start at "Little Rage," (the first song on the full length) and play it on repeat. This album has blown my mind. It is exactly what I want to hear. It has a solid closer, and gets better and better on each listen.

Bill Fox - Shelter From the Smoke

Bill Fox is one of the guys featured on the "I Stayed Up All Night Listening to Records" album I posted a couple weeks ago. His "Shelter From the Smoke" is real good.
A bunch of lo-fi solo gems. Similar to Tobin Sprout's GBV stuff. Give "Lonesome Pine" a listen. You will like it.

Pet Shop Boys - Singles

Keeping the 80s electronic spirit alive I present the singles collection for the first decade of The Pet Shop Boys. Maybe you'll get a kick out of how "West End Girls" sounds like "Jizz In My Pants," but there is no denying that "Suburbia" is a rock solid classic. Then you'll get all over "What Have I Done to Deserve This" and "Always on My Mind" and others. This hit-machine duo sure knew how to call em. It can't be all lo-fi all the time. This is summer music.
