Compilation of Compilations by The Active Listener, Popboomerang, & Ice Cream Man Power Pop and More

In the mood to sample and freely download 95 powerpop and psychpop tunes? Yeh, thought so. Well, we've had the good fortune to learn of and freely take from several excellent compilations of late, widgeted cornucopias of which are posted below.

From the ever-faithful, ever-active Nathan Ford comes The Active Listener Sampler 24. Our favorites are Nos. 5, 11, & 15, but that one widget below contains all fifteen free and legals.

From fabpop Australian label Popboomerang comes the sixteen-song comp, Up To Our Eyeball In it: A Popboomerang sampler. Our favorites are #2, 6, 7, 10, 12, and 13, but for some reason, Bandcamp has decided you WILL kick it off with #8. But, hey, it's free, they're all in the widget, so who's complainin'?

And last but way the opposite of least comes the extremely tasty supercomp from Mr. Wayne Lundquist Ford, of powerpop blog/Podomatic radio show Ice Cream Man Power Pop and More!. Wayne got permission from 63 artists to post 64 free and legals, so we're pretty sure you're going to find quite a few handsandfeetful of great stuff. We downloaded and sampled all 64, OF COURSE, but our favorites are (deep intake of breath) 2, 3, 6, 8, 11, 12, 14, 21, 26, 28, 29, 35, 36, 39, 40, 45, 48, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59, 60, and 64. We thought about posting a separate widget for each of our faves, but then thought, wellllllll, perhaps not.

Needless to say, but we will anyway, unspeakable but typeable thanks to these generous souls for so bounteously passing out the pop!

hi ppop, thanks for the heads up on these. i had already known about the ice cream man link, and was able to come up with an hour's worth of great tunes when subtracting the ones i already knew and the dodgy ones.

appreciate the popboomerang link. always like their bands.

Thanks for writing, John. It's always great to hear from you, to know you're still popping by. Yes, Popboomerang puts out lots of great tuneage. How are you on psych and psychpop, just out of curiosity?
