A couple of days ago a friend (Hi, Kenny!) suggested I listen to a US power pop band called Gladhands. They were active in the 90’s, and released two albums before, er, not releasing any more.
I got a hold of their debut album, La Di Da (1997), listened to it, and enjoyed it. It’s power pop alright – lots of tunes, lots of guitars – and pleasantly varied (i.e., the songs don’t all sound the same).
Here’s the opening track:
Gladhands – “Kill’em With Kindness” (1997)
And here’s another one:
Gladhands – “Dissatisfaction” (1997)
Not bad at all.
