It’s summer. So instead of  our usual Indie album picks for June, the staff at I Can’t Believe My Earz has come up with a list of songs that are a must for your summer music playlist. Very cool.

 

XPRIME– ‘Early To The Sun’        

 With harmonies  that rival The Beach Boys, and melody lines that just don’t quite,  this song does everything right. A foot tapping, hand clapping, sing along song if ever there was one.

 

 

 

GIGI-‘Put Your Freakin Hands Up

This song delivers an incredible rhythm, and an insanely infectious hook. Destined to be playing in your head for a long while. In the meantime, it will have you dancing in the streets.

 

 

 

 

THE MINNOWS-‘Time Flies’

Amazing track that more that stands the test of time. Cool harmonies, a wonderful melody, and a great story. The keyboards are a standout. This is my ‘have a beer or 2 and sit by the pool’ song.

SEAPONY-‘What You Wanted’

A way cool 60’s beat, terrific riff, great changes, and sweet vocals make this a must have summer track. The harmonies are wonderful, and the melody will have you singing and dancing up and down  the beach.

 

 

 

 

THE AFTER HOURS-‘Going To The Go-Go’

A terrific rock song with great harmonies, wonderful guitar licks, and some way cool harmonica. Go on and put the top down and crank this one up..way loud.

 

 

 

 

THE EASY OUTS-‘Come on Come On

Dynamite garage rock. Sweet guitar licks, wonderful vocals, a great  melody, and a driving beat. Jump in the GTO and Come On Come On…..

 

 

 

 

 

THE LOST BOYS-‘I Fall For Everyone’

Wonderful 1960’s melody, with cool guitar riffs, great changes, and sweet harmonies.  A perfectly wonderful pop song that will make you feel like London, 1965.

 

 

 

Enjoy the summer with I Can’t Believe My Earz. Get the best music you’ve never heard all summer long.

THE AFTER HOURS-Shaken, Not Stirred

afterhours2I was beginning to think that the only way I was going to find any decent pop music to listen to, was to focus on bands from the U.K. Until now. The After Hours, hailing from Los Angeles, have released a dynamite album, “Shaken, Not Stirred“, that has restored my faith in the resurgence of classic pop on this side of the Atlantic.

There is an amazing 1960’s surf music feel to “Here To Stay“, with its cool guitar riff and solo that involves a whammy bar! The melody & harmonies are pure California pop, and the unforgettable hook is surpassed only by the “big finish” and by the different guitar sounds within this track. “Going To The Go Go“, with its 1950’s rock & roll/garage style, has a dynamite bass line, and way cool harmonica. The changes and bridge are nice, the riff amazing, and the harmonies have me wondering which part I should sing. A wonderful pop song, “Keep Her Satisfied“, has amazing harmonies, a great melody and a sweet 1960’s feel. The guitar is after hours1particularly amazing. “The Lonely Boys“, with its power-pop/rock ‘n’ roll style offers a great vocal track, a cool melody with great harmonies, and dynamite changes. The guitar kills, and I dig the hand clapping. My favorite track on the album, “Kaliedoscopic“, is pure 1960’s psych rock/pop, sort of The Monkees going psychedelic. The harmonies which are utilized as an additional instrument, and vocals are dynamite. The changes and effects, perfect. The drumming rocks and the mysical bridge that incorporates organ is wonderful. The way cool riff makes this song. Check it out!

afterhours3I really like this band, The After Hours. I am a fan! They cite among their many influences The Beatles, The Beach Boys, The Kinks, The Byrds, The Zombies, The Hollies and The Turtles. Is it any wonder their music has wonderful 1960’s melodies, harmonies and riffs?  The vocals and the guitar work stand out. “Shaken, Not Stirred” captures the essence of 60’s music. The songs are wonderfully written, and demonstrate a remarkable ability to integrate all of their influences into one cohesive and coherent sound. This is a must have album. I will be getting 2, as I am certain I will be playing 1 of them into oblivion.
