Even more rock and roll fun from the CD Baby store

If you are not familiar with this feature what I do is basically constantly troll CD Baby checking out cool and sometimes not so cool CDs and feature a sampling of them every week. If any of these catch your interest just click on the link and you can listen and read about the band and album in question. If you so desire you can then buy the CD and help support the Rock and Roll Report. At some point in the future I intend on collecting all of these picks and putting them into some kind of a separate page/music store but until then you can always use the “New Additions from the CD Baby Store” link to see what I have featured in the past. Here are this week’s picks:

album cover FOOLED BY APRIL: Nice To See Youthe best description for this record is hi-fi garage — lushly produced power pop that remembers that it was written in a basement…

album cover THE BELLA FAYES: The Truth In A Beautiful LieSonic foundry of thick guitars and pounding rhythms set off by a straight-shooting lead vocal. These rock enthusiasts specialize in knock-down, drag-out shows, but this record houses some sensitive gems that make for a complete listening experience.

album cover KELLY’S HEELS: Bent Over BackwardsPower Pop; a satisfying meal of pub rock- that fondly remembered genre from the ’70s that included the likes of Brinsley Schwartz, Ducks Deluxe and Rockpile.

Buy the CD

album cover GREG HOY: Tastemakers & HeartbreakersPower-pop with big guitar crunch, some real back-beat presence, and encircling guitars, bold melodies and no hint of boyish niceties or polite mannerism – Jack Rabid (The Big Takeover)

Buy the CD

album cover SHEEK THE SHAYK: Hour Of The Seventh MoonSheek The Shayk combine the groovy 60’s garage beat of the Nuggets Box Sets with mondo distorted guitars set to STUN. The band’s secret weapon and spiritual epicentre is frontman Senor Johnny who comes off like a psychotic teenage Mexican Mick Jagger.

album cover MORE PLASTIC: The 60 Watt PartySomewhere between the pop of the 60’s, the rock of the 70’s and the alterna-90’s, you’ll find More Plastic

Buy the CD

album cover JETTISON RED: Travel By TelephoneDetroit Power POP-ROCK & Roll. With the depth and care of emo rock and the gutsy, ballsy rock of punk pop and hard rock. A glorious sound that leaves nothing to be desired.
