Dolph Chaney is making some of the finest indie influenced power pop around! This version of ‘Now I Am A Man‘ is a new interpretation of the song he originally recorded in 2008.

His new record, ‘This is Dolph Chaney‘ is up for pre-order and comes out on February 20, 2021 courtesy of the fine folks at Big Stir Records. We highly recommend that you check it out!

Video of the Day: Shannon Clark and The Sugar – Carry Me

The Family trio, Shannon Clark and The Sugar have released a new powerful song ‘Carry Me.’ The evocative song captures the emotional turmoil of loss, challenge and efforts at redemption. This deeply intimate and personal music elevates the listener into recognizing the need for home, community and a place where you feel grounded.

You can find out more about them on their Facebook page, Twitter and Instagram.

Video of the Day: The Grapes of Wrath – Good To See You

Interesting lyric video for The Grapes of Wrath – ‘Good To See You’ from their 2013 record High Road. The song had been on a previous collection, Singles a year earlier. I have loved this band since their 1987 record Treehouse. The band has not released a record since High Road. They were extremely active in the 1980s and released a few albums in the 1990s and 2000s. In 2017, the band released a live album, Brand New Waves, from CBC Montreal Studio in 1988. Hope that some new music is on the horizon. Check out their excellent catalog!

Video of The Day: TV Queens – Make A Hit

TV Queens is the new project from Darryl Robbins (Motel Beds, Overthought Musik), Nathan Peters (Lioness, Captain of Industry) and Maria Dixon (Lioness). This stellar track is off of their upcoming first album, Bad Fiction which is coming out on February 19, 2021 on Magnaphone Records. Full of cool electronic goodness and overflowing with personality and charisma, this song should only build anticipation for the full length!

The first two singles ‘Bad Blood’ (as heard last week on YTAA!) and ‘All is Well or Hungry’ are available now from the band’s bandcamp page! Check Overthought Musik’s Facebook page for more information on all of the different music projects!

Video of The Day: The Reivers – If I Had a Little Time Without YOU

The John Croslin song, If I Had a Little Time Without You is from the 1991 album ‘Pop Beloved‘! The Austin, Texas based The Reivers were originally called Zeitgeist and were forced to change their name prior to the release of their second record ‘Translate Slowly‘ (1985) due to another band already using that name. The band released several terrific records ‘Saturday‘ (produced by Don Dixon) and ‘End of The Day‘ before ‘Pop Beloved.’ They released one more full length compilation in 2013, ‘Second Story‘. You can learn more on their webpage!

Video of the Day: Tiny Stills – The Sad Year Katy Perry Saved My Life

Tiny Stills have made some of the most compelling indie power pop of the past few years. With an ear for melody and hooks that pull you into the song, they have released a series of terrific singles from ‘Craigslist Bed‘ to ‘Everything is Going Great‘. The latest song from Kailynn West and Company addresses how music can help us over come the challenges of life everyday. You can follow the band on twitter at @tinystills.

Video Of The Day: Tiny Stills – Craigslist Bed

Kailynn West as Tiny Stills is making some of the most infectious indie power pop that captures the sadness and melancholy of choices and consequences of this thing we call life. The fact that she does so without being trite or condescending is something that should catch on! In the best tradition of post-punk, Tiny Stills explores twists and turns with catchy melodies and crunchy guitars. It does not get better than that. You should also explore the excellent “Everything is Going Great” which speaks to us in this current moment of time.
