Propeller - Don't Be Sorry Again (Name Your Price)

Let me introduce you to "Propeller" who have won my album cover art of the year (so far) with their second album "Don't Be Sorry Again."  But, you can't judge a book by its cover, right?  Wrong.  Firstly, this is a record anyway and secondly, it is packed to the rim with some fantastic cuts of Power Pop/Indie Rock, complete with chunky, chopping guitars, songs with strong melodies and hooks that will have you reminiscing of bands like Teenage Fanclub, in their early to mid career stage, Dinosaur Jr. The Replacements and Superdrag, to name a few, but they have plenty of originality to their sound to keep you hanging on every line delivered.

This is an album to be played loud to enjoy it to the maximum, and, for me personally, this would be great driving music and is certainly an album that will be making its way into my car stereo, home stereo and Ipod, this really is a blinder of an album and at a name your price fee, it is an absolute steal.  Yes, you can get it for free, but if you like it, please pay something as it will ensure that we get to hear more from Propleller in the future and for that not to happen would be a crime.  Go get it!!!!

Re-grouping in a San Rafael, CA garage, Propeller climbed out of the ashes of San Francisco's, Varsity Drag (comprised of members of Unbalanced and The Lemonheads), who's debut album "For Crying Out Loud" was released on the UK label Boss Tuneage and received favorable reviews worldwide. Propeller blends Greg Randall and Will Anderson's bright melodies with punchy guitar work which has produced "Don't Be Sorry Again" and "The Fear Of Rock And Roll". Solid records chock full of ultra-catchy gems. Propeller is an essential addition to any music lover who has The Replacements, Husker Du, Big Star, Buzzcocks, Teenage Fanclub and Dinosaur Jr., in their stack.
