Sparkwood - Jalopy Pop - 2005

Sparkwood is the latest recipe to emerge from Bart Padar's musical kitchen. With a new batch of ingredients including Mark Doroba (Three Years Ghost), Mike Reynolds (The Sleepwalkers, Violet Crown), and Sean Crooks (The Alice Rose), the band serves up a savory blend of pop-a-licious delight. Peering inside of Sparkwood's crock-pot of musical influences one will find a history of scrumptious morsels like The Beatles, Jellyfish, Queen, ELO, and Ben Folds. Their live shows are a junket of mellifluous fun. The boys in Sparkwood LOVE what they do and their performances are a vibrant celebration of this fact. They clearly share their collective enthusiasm with all who attend their shows. Heavy meals? No way! Sparkwood heads straight for dessert, their melodies a bundle of candy-coated excitation. Currently they're merely a secret treat but Sparkwood aspires to share their delectable creations with the rest of the world. The obvious consensus: Sparkwood is a fluorescent feast for the senses!

Thanks for this - I had purchased this album through iTunes, which recently got corrupted so that it couldn't play any protected music, so it's good to have it back. I too would love to see "Kaleidoscopism" posted.
