1301 HIGHLAND AVENUE
"Of all the albums I've heard since the
Power Pop renaissance, "1301 Highland Avenue" captures the magic of
'70s AM Radio as well as any. Awesome hooks which repeat (a lost
art) and engaging lead vocals, it's an album which will stay in your
head long after the record has stopped."--David Bash, pop music
journalist and founder/CEO: The International Pop Overthrow Festival
