Rock and Roll Report Blitz: Deluxe Leisure King

deluxe-leisure-king-small.jpgI have a soft spot for good power pop. Melodic guitar-based rock and roll that is a tip of the hat to the Beatles and the Byrds and always seems to put a smile on your face. Well Deluxe Leisure King certainly put a smile on my face, especially after listening to Wanna a Girl Like That. They have all the ingredients that I like in my power pop but most importantly they have that wonderful melodic harmonizing backing vocals that give me goose bumps. Debbie Does Nothing is great and Helicopter reminds me of early R.E.M.

Have a listen to their stuff on their MySpace page and enjoy.
