Definitely amongst our top ten favourite artists, here’s our PoP Legends playlist for the genius that is Neil Young!
It’s March 2018 and we have been blessed – in this new year – by new albums from veteran artists that hold up against all the young upstarts! Enjoy!
We really do adore new bands that live in their own little bubble and don’t quite give a fuck about what’s happening in the mainstream music industry. Latest case in point – NYC’s Acid Dad!
A gentle reminder that 2018 marks the 20th anniversary of Power of Pop and we continue to re-post items from the past. Today, it’s a review from 14 years ago! Enjoy!
Another week, another Spotify playlist where we spotlight new modern rock music that we are confident you have probably never heard of BUT definitely should!
Here’s one for fans of 70s glam rock – Bowie, T. Rex – as expressed by acolytes in the 80s (The Cure), the 90s (Suede) and the 00s (Dandy Warhols). Lostdog in Loveland might be a bit under the radar but a tidy discovery for those in the know.
A dynamic pop EP we missed first time out that caught our attention recently, Purkinje’s Voyager deserves the spotlight.
So what in the world is prog pop, you might ask?

Listening to Bootikins, the 2nd album in Aussie band Augie March‘s comeback since they returned from hiatus in 2014, it’s hard to imagine music that is more far removed from what is trendy in modern rock circles than this.
Nashville-based singer-songwriter Michelle Mandico has released “Ptarmigan”, her first single ahead of a new album, due in Spring 2018.
Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the new single from The Radio Set, produced by Peter Hook, no less!
Looking back to move forward. NYC trio Beechwood might be accused of backward gazing when it comes to musical inspiration but what’s the problem when the results are so good?
When you consider how obsessed the current modern rock scene is with the 80s New Romantic/Big Music vibe, it makes perfect sense for Simple Minds to freshen up their sound by going back to a tried and tested formula.
2018 welcomes one of its biggest albums with Always Ascending, the new release from Scottish band Franz Ferdinand on February 9th.
Dirty pop? Might be a bit of a misnomer when you listen to Fiona Grey‘s new single, “Dirty Dream”.
