Milkshake Jones - Gala Days - 2007


Based out of Harrisburg, PA, Milkshake Jones is a quartet that blends the sound of classic power pop with a dash of alt-country twang and a rock guitar edge. Fronted by songwriter and primary vocalist John Micek, the group also features Mark Burke on guitar, Marni Micek on bass, and Paul Murr on drums. After developing a local following in Harrisburg, the band started heading out for short tours and playing shows with the likes of Mitch Easter and Tim Lee, the latter of whom collaborated with John Micek for a song on Milkshake Jones' debut EP, released by the Paisley Pop label in 2003. -AMG

You post so much stuff it's hard to keep up and choose which things to get.

But the description of this jumped right out at me.

A really good album. To my ears very much in the style of Gin Blossoms, SideWinders, Sand Rubies.

I actually bypassed the download here to get it off eMusic.

Thanks for the pointer to new music.
