The Sensitive Guy's Guide To Groovy Music - Various Artists - 2004


As one of the last proponents of jangle pop in the 21st century, the Paisley Pop label has gathered up 22 shining examples of its progeny from North America and the U.K.
THE SENSITIVE GUY’S GUIDE TO GROOVY MUSIC serves as a terrific introduction to the world of underground pop. Focusing on artists on fledgling independent labels including Paisley Pop, BongoBeat, 1-2-5,Groove Disques, and Gadfly, TSGGTGM brings forth otherwise obscure artists like Stephen Lawrenson, Joe Mannix, The Swivel Chairs and Milkshake Jones to rub shoulders with offerings from more prominent musicians including Jamie Hoover & Bill Lloyd, Kimberly Rew (writer of the 80s hit Walking On Sunshine and former Soft Boy), Huw Gower (lead guitarist on the 1979 Billboard smash single "Starry Eyes"), and Jill Olson (John Wesley Harding, Red Meat, Mare Winningham).
Paisley Pop has mined artists from across the country, bringing together artists from not only its hometown of Portland, OR (The Quags & Crack City Rockers), but as far away as Cambridge, England (Kimberley Rew). Artists on the Sensitive Guy’s Guide span from the downtown folk scene of New York City (Joe Mannix, Huw Gower) to Ottumwa, Iowa by way of San Francisco (Jill Olson); with states like Texas (Rite Flyers, Happiness Factor), Tennessee (Bill Lloyd, Tim Lee) and Pennsylvania (Milkshake Jones, Trolleyvox, Stephen Lawrenson) all contributing several groups each.
