"Coolest Song in the World"

Little Steven's Underground Garage

“Temporary High” is Nick Piunti’s follow up to 2016’s “Trust Your Instincts”. Highly regarded in the power pop community (check the many year end “best of” lists), Nick’s last album also received heavy airplay on Sirius XM’s The Loft, with the song “Dumb it Down” featured as one of Program Director Mike Marrone’s top tracks of the year. Nick’s songs, while unapologetically catchy, are also substantive lyrically. Guitars are always prominent in the mix, in the best classic pop kind of way.

While this album definitely rocks (“Temporary High”, “You Invented Hell”, “Blameless”) there is also finesse applied in the production.Plenty of pop hooks (“You’re Perfect and I’m Not”, “If This Was Right”, “No Return”) blend seamlessly alongside “made for AAA radio” tracks “Deep Freeze” and “Headphones”.


Produced by Geoff Michael and Piunti, “Temporary High” features the rhythm section of The Verve Pipe’s Donny Brown/drums and Andy Reed/bass. Nick handles all the guitars and lead vocals while Andy, Donny, Geoff and Nick all added keyboards to several tracks. Special guests Chris Richards and Plink Giglio round out the roster.

Available on Amazon, iTunes, CD & LP

New Jersey band SOMERDALE released it's third album, Shake it Maggie. Lauded by the Power Pop press as one of the best albums of the year, the record found it's way to JEM Records president Marty Scott, who immediately sought out and signed the band sending them back into the studio to record new tracks to be included in the label's re-issue of the album. Now featuring 15 SOMERDALE originals, Maggie Says It Again is insanely catchy, meticulously crafted, and hook-filled.

Based in the heart of Southern New Jersey, SOMERDALE comprises:

Chuck Penza [vocals, bass guitar and keyboards]

JJ Fennimore [vocals and drums and James Caputo, vocals and guitars]

Find it on Amazon


The band has had great success with their first five singles, all reaching the Top 10 on the Classic Rock Mediabase radio chart.

An unprecedented 5 "Coolest Songs in the World" on Little Steven's Underground Garage!


The Bayonets guitarist and lead vocalist, Brian Ray, is known worldwide for his musical contributions to the Paul McCartney Band, who continue on a massive arena and stadium tour this summer. "I've been a very lucky man to work alongside Paul McCartney for 15 years now. Paul's generosity of spirit gives me the space, time and wherewithal to indulge my wildest sonic dream life in my spare time, Brian reflected, "For me, Rock and Roll needs to stay dangerous and fun. I wanted that sense of adventure and comradery, and I found it with my good friend and songwriting partner, Oliver Leiber.”


Drummer Oliver Leiber is well known for playing guitar and recording songs for some of the biggest artists in the business, including Rod Stewart, among many others. Speaking of the band, Oliver said, "Most of all, we just wanted to have fun and rock out! Oh yeah, Oliver's father was songwriting legend Jerry Leiber.
Lucrecia López Sanz (of Argentina's Nube 9) contributes guitar and lead and harmony vocals.

NICK PIUNTI SIGNS WITH JEM!

NEW ALBUM "TRUST YOUR INSTINCTS" OUT NOW!

Detroit based power pop/indie rock artist, Nick Piunti, “knocks out the hooks and melodies one after the other in the most classic of power pop styles.”

 - Absolute Power Pop

The new album “Trust Your Instincts” expands upon Nick’s obsession with the three-minute pop song, successfully displayed in his last two solo releases, 2013’s “13 in My Head” and 2015’s follow up, “Beyond the Static”. Both of those albums found their way onto many year-end “best of” lists, and this year’s model is sure to do the same. Lyrically, Nick digs a little deeper with his most personal record to date, while still maintaining the energetic riffs and hooks that define his sound.


ASSORTED COLOURS" Now Available Everywhere

The Anderson Council creates a modern pop atmosphere infused with a strong dose of rock nostalgia, drawing upon its British Invasion idols to offer a rich, bright and buoyant sound. 

Early recordings by The Who and Pink Floyd figure in heavily to the band’s music—think My Generation and Piper at the Gates of Dawn.  In fact, the band name refers to the other halves of Pink Floyd—Pink (Anderson) and Floyd (Council).  Pete Townshend-esque guitar riffs play into songs like “Strawberry Smell,” vocal harmonies throughout the band’s catalog suggest The Hollies, and occasional threads of Eastern strings (in songs like “Hole in the Sky”) conjure The Beatles’ “Norwegian Wood.”

But the band brings a fresh take on these decades-old influences. Compared by Magnet magazine to The White Stripes and The Hives, The Council not only appeals to fans of rockers like The Kinks, but bands like The Jam, XTC, Elvis Costello; The Attractions and Sloan too.

“This is a great career-spanning retrospective (with new songs) featuring re-mastered versions of some of the best Anderson Council tracks including personal favorites “Sitting on a Cloud” and “Pinkerton’s Assorted Colours.” I absolutely love the four new songs. “Girl on The Northern Line” is the tastiest slice of pop psych I’ve heard in quite some time.”

Jeffrey Raskin - Pop That Goes Crunch


“New Jersey’s Anderson Council powers its way through this heavenly collection of new and previously released classics. Who-like, frenetic intensity, committed vocals, crackling guitars, and in-your- face songwriting abound. Peter Horvath and crew take no prisoners on one of this year’s most energetic releases.”

Alan Haber - PurePop Radio


Combining the jangle of Power Pop, the scorch of Psych Rock, the reckless abandon of Garage Rock and the vocal harmonies of 60’s folk rock, The Anderson Council offer up a delicious blend of American and British pop. The Who if they were influenced by Canadian rockers Sloan, this is a band that transcends genres yet fits comfortably within the framework of Power Pop and Garage Rock. On the first spin, you’ll find yourself singing along with each song by the time it comes to an end. These are hooks that were made for earworms. Dig it!

Stephen Schnee - Amped Distribution

“Wonderfully crafted mod pop jangle goodness that I’ve always had a soft spot for. Catchy sharp harmonies and hooks. Hearing this makes me want to take a ride to the coast on a pristine day. I can drink a cup of tea and relax to this, or crank it up at my midsummer keg party! Good stuff.”

Kurt Baker - Recording Artist


“The swirling infectious melodies from an American band with a distinct British flavor this collection reminds us why The Anderson Council’s Power Pop is some of the best ever recorded. The new songs fit right in making this a perfect ‘primer’ Bravo!”

Aaron Kupferberg - Powerpopaholic

"Filled with great melodic hooks, glorious harmonies and spine-tingling chord changes."(Discussions Magazine) The
album's charm lies in its lack of pretentiousness and love of creating pure pop music for the now generation. They 
emulate the feel and emotion of those artists, songs, and albums that have truly made a difference in Pop Music over 
the last 50 years.
