Modcast #488: Play 'Em Again Suave

We're just a little past the half way mark for this year and already it's shaping up to be a great one as far as new music goes. A lot of music rumbles through my ears, and lately these are the artists who are in heavy rotation here at Suave headquarters. There are definitely some solid contenders for my annual best of list at the end of the year. These are acts I've already hyped this year, but the music is so good I decided I'd better play 'em again.

Modcast #487: Here Comes The Ice Cream Man

Modcast #487

Ages ago I discovered this great blog (yes blog!) called Ice Cream Man Power Pop & More. It was highlighting all the exact types of music that I loved. Eventually that morphed into the fantastic Ice Cream Man Power Pop & More Podcast and Ice Cream Man Power Pop & More Records, run by the even more fantastic, prince of power pop promotion, Wayne Lundqvist Ford. I'd be shocked --shocked I tell you-- if you could find anyone who has done more to promote independent artists playing all the great types of mod friendly music from power pop to northern soul and everything in between. His compilations featuring new and old bands are legendary for breaking new sounds as well as sometime being so vast you're riding high for weeks listening to them all.

So, I invited him to chat about new music, old music, what is good music, and more. He even kindly brought some brand new tunes to share with us all.

Where's Wayne at? Well, like Roy Kent he's here, he's there, he's every f*cking where.
