Let me introduce you to your new favorite "guilty pleasure" listening music - Late Music, the very welcome new release that hit stores and digital outlets today from Smithereens drummer Dennis Diken with Bell Sound. The Bell Sound project pairs Diken with collaborator Pete DiBella, and a list of special guests that will put a smile on the face of power pop lovers everywhere - Brian Wilson producer Andy Paley, The Honeys, Jason Falkner, and members of The Wondermints are just a few of the names that drop by to lend a hand on Late Music!
From the official press release:
The finely-wrought sound of Late Music owes much to The Four Freshmen, The Four Seasons, The Bee Gees and The Beach Boys. And Dennis Diken with Bell Sound’s hat remains roguishly tipped to The Association, The Who and The Move. Yet Late Music remains their own thing, for them to offer and the world to dig. And dig, it must. It’s never too late.
If you're a big Beach Boys/Smithereens/power pop fan like I am, hopefully you're already downloading this album - it really is a fantastic listen and must-hear for all music lovers. I can't wait to take this one in the car, and I'm already plotting a track or two for my next mix!
