Nyack (ex-Aenone) - 11 Track Player (1995, Echo)

In response to my Aenone post a little while back, someone requested some tuneage from Nyack, essentially Aenone rechristened with a new moniker, and more significantly, an almost entirely renovated sound. As anyone who has listened to their two eps will tell you, Aenone were through-and-through dream-pop on par or superior to most of their early '90s counterparts. Strip them of their flange and distortion pedals (most of 'em that is), and accord them with an appreciation of those fabled three chords, and voila, you've got yourself a Nyack on your hands, my friends. 11 Track Player oozes power-pop aplenty, touching upon Superdrag, Teenage Fanclub, and the numerous likenesses thereof, with perhaps the only anomally being the closing "Sunrise In My Head," offering a little Jesus & Mary Chain headiness. I've been told that "Savage Smile" was the emphasis track here, and furthermore was made a single. You can hear more Nyack trax from the band's above linked Myspace page.

That is a band I think you might like, and I think kinda fits your blog. It is their new ep leak, I included the cover and everything. You should check it out and post, if you think your readers will like it, I like the stuff you put on your blog and I love this, so I assume others will!

Their name is Darling's Cabinet of Sundry Horror, and its kind of like gothic folk/protopunk/indie/circus music, For fans of the birtday party and the violent femmes, and maybe even marilyn manson or Tom waits.
