We open this week with The Cab’s song “Lights.” I’m not afraid to admit it – I can’t resist me some power pop, a genre where catchy, thickly-arranged choruses are king. And happily, this track doesn’t disappoint in that regard. Additionally, the vocals throughout are nicely done, and the piano, which I didn’t expect to hear, added a nice touch. If you like what you hear, The Cab will be at 9:30 Club this coming Tuesday, July 28th.

And we close out this week with “Jonesy Boy” from Cass McCombs (above). It’s a bit of a Liverpoolian pop shuffle, with a clear-toned rhythm guitar lick that pulls things along nicely. If you like what you hear, the gentle-voiced crooner Cass McCombs will be at IOTA Thursday, July 30th.
