The Pantookas - Salad - 1997

The Pantookas is a band lead by sometime Phenomenal Cat Chris Richards. This 10 song CD is tight and radiant parade of sunshiny, front-mixed guitars and ooh-ahh harmonies in the Matthew Sweet (Girlfriend era), The Rembrandts-inspired school of deftly hummable Beatles/Spongetones songcraft. I would say there is a strong aura of Crowded House in parts, too. This sprucey stuff that benefits w/ nice embellishments of horns and organ on some songs making a distinctive impression. Very Highly Recommended! -Not Lame

FYI: Your Mediafire link is bad. It reads "http://powerpopoverdose.blogspot.com/MediafireMultiUpload"

The MultiUpload link is good, though. Thanks, as always!
