Singles: Luke Potter, Ryan Hamilton, The Outryders and The Well Wishers

Luke Potter
has been on our radar for a while, this nice Halloween themed video displays “Ready or Not” an original that has plenty of funk, and a catchy chorus that sticks in your head.

Ryan Hamilton – this video of “Records and Needles” is a sweet tribute to rockers of the past. See how many classic LPs you can name being parodied here (it’s pretty easy). We reviewed Ryan’s debut “Hell Of A Day” earlier this year. Also check out the video for “Four Letter Verb.”

The Outryders
make no apologies for the fact that they are happily stuck in the period of late 80s and early 90s melodic guitar based pop. The band is the duo of Joe Algeri (Jangle Band, The JAC, Britannicas, Jack & the Beanstalk, Summer Suns) and Paul Colombini (Roadstar, Cherrytones) and no tricks here, these singles are a FREE downloadable treat!

The Well Wishers
(aka Jeff Shelton) delivers us an obscure cover of Abba’s “Suzy Hang Around” an album cut from their “Waterloo” LP. This is another goodie for your audio treat bag, being a FREE download.

Video: Two Gallants “We Are Undone”

Yeah, I know. Not power pop, but I love the guitar work here. Two Gallants are Adam Stephens (guitar, harmonica, piano and vocals) and Tyson Vogel (drums, guitar and vocals) and they’ve been making music together since the age of 12 and performing around San Francisco. Two Gallants’ fifth studio album is We Are Undone and to celebrate the release, the band performs the title track on “Late Night with Seth Meyers.” Check it out or you are the Goofus here.
