Supercrush - Never Let You Drift Away
As music fans, we moan from time to time about how difficult, and sometimes impossible, it is to collect the singles or EPs of a favorite, but not well known, band. This is especially true when the band's releases are spread out over a number of years and have a limited release. Chris at Jigsaw records feels our pain. But Chris doesn't just offer empathy, he offers fans of Seattle band SupercrushNever Let You Drift Away -- a single album of the four singles (plus bonus tracks) that represents their recorded output. And even if you don't know Supercrush, this is a much needed introduction for any fan of power pop. You can even close your eyes and pretend that the songs are from a newly discovered batch of Teenage Fanclub recordings. It really won't take much imagination at all, and that is a very good thing.
Supercrush is the project of Mark Palm and Aaron O'Neil. Never Let You Drift Away is out now in digital, vinyl, cassette, and CD formats.
