Recentish Finds: Wyatt Blair, Moondogs, Captain Wilberforce, Carlos, Dangüs Tarküs, Brat Farrar, daysee, Starwheel
Our Powerpopulist Acquisition Department has done a rather decent job of hunting down and stockpiling high quality, free and legally downloadable tuneage. Unfortunately our Distribution Department sucks. We'd fire his ass if that didn't entail the simultaneous elimination of the Acquisition Department. Anyway, here are some recent and fairly recent finds for your consideration. We might have to do some more posts of this ilk to catch up.
We also very much liked #2.
We liked #1 a lot, too. Thanks to dear friend Wub-Fur (aka "Bo") for the headsup on this Oakland band.
We also loved #3, 5, 7, & 8. Tip of the chapeau to Still in Rock for the headsup.
We also liked #2 a ho' ho' lot.

Sweet indeed, for April showered us with a nourishing bounty of musical discovery. But, hey, enough poetry, wot?
We added 81 mostly new-to-us titles to our Playmoss April 2017 playlist and from that list have widgeted 31 of our very favorites below. We've thought about launching a radio show to share our discoveries but find these Playmoss playlists preferable for several reasons: A) You don't have to hear our voice. B) It's easy for you to drop the needle from song to song, skipping ahead should you - Fod gorbid - not be enjoying a song. C) You seldom need to wonder which artist or song you're listening to. D) Other reasons we don't care to mention.
We indicated you need not be in doubt as to Artist or Songtitle, but sometimes Playmoss does not display one or more of those useful pieces of information. In the widget below, that applies to the following:
#3 - So Many Wizards - Just Poison
#5 - jellyskin - Eater
#5 - jellyskin - Eater
#10 - Sugarmen - SOLD
#31 - Matthew Sweet - Trick
And sometimes Playmoss simply refuses to ingest a song at all. This month a hideous injustice might have been done when "Mossy" refused to display any of the songs off of Peachfuzz's fabulous Pop Of The World LP. Fortunately, we posted that free and legally downloadable LP here, along with some other Peachfuzzes "Mossy" wouldn't accept. We love Playmoss very much, but sometimes . . . sheesh.
Finally, we might mention that we've been creating more Playlists you might like to check out, particularly the one called "Powerpop - From Dec2016 ---->." You can check out our entire Powerpopulist Playmoss Playlist Collection here.
Now, where were we? Oh, yeah, April 2017 Faves of the Faves.

Comp Faves: Prince Rupert's Drops, Chemtrails, Marvelous Beauhunks, The Embrooks, Chris Comey, Car Crash Sisters, Kindling, Heaters, Michael Carpenter, Jericho, Caramel Snow, Doug Tuttle
Here are our three favorites from this typically fabulous Ice Cream Man comp, but there are plenty more we loved as well. Check out the Cool One's fabulous weekly powerpop radio show, either live or on Podomatic.
Okay, here's the one that will set you back $1 for the entire compilation. We loved Doug Tuttle's set at the 2014 Austin Psych Fest and even got to chat with him briefly while strolling through the ranchgrounds afterwards. Check out his forthcoming LP, Peace Potato, streaming at Noisey.
Sorry we didn't write more in this post. Or maybe we should say, "You're welcome."
