Too Poppy

just pop music for the casually obsessed

jeremy messersmith - Purple Hearts


From his upcoming "orchestral pop record" Late Stage Capitalism, here's jeremy messersmith with Purple Hearts. And yes, you were absolutely supposed to read that in your best radio voice. The return-to-form album is out 3/9 and available for pre-order tomorrow. He's a criminally underrated popster that requires your attention now. Official Site

Standing at the Gates: The Songs of Nada Surf's Let Go


Outside of The Beatles, I don't think I've ever been more infatuated with an album 15 years after its release than Nada Surf's Let Go. Quite simply, it's perfect. And in the past year it's risen rapidly to my top five of all time. That's the glory of music. You just never know when and how it'll hit you, yet I couldn't be more grateful. Treading Water? C'mon. That's just not fair to the other

Brandon Schott - Room 8


Very few new releases could nudge me out of semi-retirement, but Brandon Schott has been a favorite around here for a very long time. The surprise Room 8 includes pure and acoustic renditions of a few of his classics and more. This is late-night music best served with whiskey on the rocks next to a slow-burning fire to quiet the noise of a long, busy day. This is the soundtrack to the twilight of

Too Poppy Two


... to be continued.

It's Been A Long Cold Lonely Winter


Leave it to some lost gem of The Beatles and George Harrison to drag me out of my long winter's nap. A lost guitar solo from Here Comes The Sun?! Holy shit this is awesome. YouTube

Better Watch Your Step


PPL MVR. Shit is getting weird. Who? What? Why? Why not. I have strong guesses for their true identities, but I'll play along. PPL MVR is SNBLL, K-PO, and Q. Naturally. Fun fun. Thump thump. Free download available from their official site below. And they're signed to Atlantic Records. Sure. Official Site | Atlantic |

So Oh In Love


Wow. So Oh in love with The Charlatans' newest tune So Oh. These guys keep going and going getting better and better. Their 12th album Modern Nature is due out Jan 26, 2015. Can't wait. Official Site | Pre-order

Shake Off The Routine


Six minutes?! What a tease! Brandon Schott has released a brand new EP called Verdugo Park, which essentially serves as the second single from his upcoming album Crayons & Angels backed with a couple non-album tracks. Such music biz lingo. The EP naturally starts with its namesake Verdugo Park, a happy tune about a happy place where life can't be that hard. Hell, the tune prominently features

Love is Free, Free is Love


Here's a wallet-friendly offer from the Beatles - 4, a new digital EP from the fab four for free (get it?). "Taste the individual brilliance" of John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Love by John, Call Me Back Again by Paul, Let It Down from George, and Walk With You from Ringo. Of course you probably already have these songs, but hey - they're free.

Cheaper Than A Dime


Here they go again. The Beatles are relentlessly relieving our wallets of our hard-earned cash with even more releases. They must be the most prolific band that broke up more than 40 years ago. It's George Harrison week on Conan, which means four performances of classic Harrison tunes. Beck kicked it off last night with Wah-Wah, a refreshingly unique choice. Of course what I love most is his

Things Left Unsaid


Twenty years after their last release, Pink Floyd's latest and likely last is set for release on November 10 (although iTunes notes the release date as November 7). The Endless River is a mostly instrumental set said to be a tribute to the band's late, great keyboardist Rick Wright. I'm not normally a fan of instrumentals, but c'mon, it's Pink Floyd! Rolling Stone has all the details as well

Maybe This Time It's Wanderlust For Me


I'm not sure we need yet another cover of Yesterday, but a new Paul McCartney tribute album, The Art of McCartney, has quite an impressive lineup conveniently listed below courtesy of Rolling Stone. The Art Of McCartney Track List: 1. Billy Joel - "Maybe I'm Amazed" 2. Bob Dylan - "Things We Said Today" 3. Heart - "Band on the Run" 4. Steve Miller - "Junior's Farm" 5. Yusuf Islam - "The Long

The Melody Above The Noise


Embrace the New World. Or better yet, manipulate the fuck out of it! Nice to see dinosaurs like U2 pull off a fantastic new release strategy today. All tech and fanboy eyes were on Apple today when they announced the new iPhone and the possibly game-changing Apple Watch. Hopefully more relevant to your interests as a Too Poppy reader however, U2 did in fact perform at the conclusion of the

Your Aimless Dreaming Has Found A Targeting


Well, it's not a new studio album, but we'll take it. Nada Surf is releasing the simply-titled digital release B-Sides, which collects, um, B-Sides from the last four studio albums. Of course, b-side is a bit of a misnomer these days particularly when we're talking digital releases, but I digress. It's greatly appreciated when a band actually releases these compilations for us fans that simply

Before It All Turns Sour


Twelve years after their last studio album was released, Del Amitri reunited for a UK tour this year, which is culminating in the release of their first live album. If enjoying a band's greatest hits performed live is your thing, Into the Mirror will be released October 20. Check out the full tracklist here. A limited amount of pre-orders may even be signed. Here in the states I would speculate

Let The Fire Fill My Eyes


Toad The Wet Sprocket really made a statement with last year's crowdfunded comeback New Constellation proving that they deserve to be more than a nostalgia act. They've just released their newest video for one of my two favorites tunes on the album. Here's California Wasted premiered by Paste... iTunes | Amazon | Official Site

Was It Always This Magnificent


Guster's new single, Long Night, is out. Check it out below. Awesome.

We Don't Want To Be Defeated


The Inspiral Carpets are back with their first single in quite a while, Spitfire.  They haven't lost their touch.  Classic IC.  Enjoy! Download on iTunes Pre-Order the New Album Inspiral Carpets - Spitfire on MUZU.TV

The Stage Is Set And The Show Is Beginning


Jason Falkner. Roger Joseph Manning, Jr. Brian Reitzell. All names that Too Poppers are likely familiar with. For context, how about Jellyfish, Moog Cookbook, The Grays, Imperial Drag, Air, and Beck? All three have been in or worked with those artists and together, they are TV Eyes. I've been covering TV Eyes since the early days of Too Poppy. She's a Study was the first tune we all heard,

Opportunity, The American Dream


Guster is the latest to request crowdfunding prior to the release of their brand new album in early 2015. Not sure how many times a single band could go to the well so it'll be interesting to see if this is the new reality or just a necessary stopgap for now. Kudos to Guster for getting creative however! Of course you'd expect to find the perks like digital downloads and autographed copies of

It All Comes Back In Good Time


Shockingly, The Posies released their debut album way back in 1988! Yep. Failure is 26 years old. I am way older than that and feeling it when I learned that they recorded this when they were teenagers! Seriously? At Least For Now and Longest Line were written and recorded by teenagers? Failure is a fun listen because of how raw and homemade it sounds, yet it is absolutely the dawn of one of the

You Wish That I Would Write For You


Anybody have $5k to spare? I'd really like my very own Matthew Sweet song! That's one of several incentives in his new Kickstarter campaign for a brand new "serious" album and "3D Art Project." Digital download, CD, vinyl, Skype call, a produced song, and a live house party are all available from between $8 and $10,000 as well as some original art. The custom song is a steal at $5,000!

Did You Forget Me, Baby?


It's all a bit under the radar at the moment, but our beloved Matthew Sweet is hitting the road this summer for a tour seemingly titled The Matthew Sweet Rock Show. I guess there's no question whether he's headlining.

Snug As Fuck


Liam Finn finally releases the follow-up to 2011's acclaimed FOMO next week. Pitchfork Advance is streaming the full album here with some instagrammy photos and vines short vids to go along with your listening pleasure. Finn is pushing it to the edge again with The Nihilist, but being Neil's kid can't be easy (he even ends the album with a tune called Wrestle With Dad! Hmm). Liam is finding

Bury Me Deep In Your Dreams


Matt Pond has released a new album via NoiseTrade called Skeletons and Friends. It's free as a thank you to supportive fans. But upon first listen, I feel a bit guilty about that. Of course you can tip on NoiseTrade and upon first listen it deserves a hefty one. Perhaps strangely, it’s mostly about hope. Sometimes the forces surrounding will set you adrift, amiss in the sea of music. Holy
