1/2/3/4 — #120 — Power Pop From Home

Power pop legends The Rubinoos are known for turning bubblegum into gold with ridiculously catchy tunes. “From Home” is a homecoming recording of sorts. It reunites the original lineup of the band and was recorded in the same studio where they recorded their first single half a century ago and teams them up with long time fan Chuck Prophet, who not only produced the record but co-writes a lot of the material. We’ll explore other uplifting power pop from Tasmainian artist Mondo Quinn, the gentle shimmering pop of Matt Kivel and wholesome mystic folk from Pearla. Plus much more!

In the last few years, the Houston-born-and-raised, Los Angeles-based musician endured life-altering hardships—illness, death, familial strife, and addiction—yet from these trials, a luxuriant and confident vision of art country emerged. This is an album I highly recommend. As well, we’ll explore new music from Stephen Grady, Esther Rose, RW Hedges, Nagillum and more!
