ALTROK Ordinals 30
Spike Priggen - The Very Thing That You Treasure (Volare)
From New Haven CT, based in NYC for the last several years. Was a member of Dumptruck (like Kevin Salem), a much-lauded 80's indie band.
Starsailor - Love Is Here (Capitol)
Jeff says: New British band ... touted as THE band for 2002. From the Northwest of England; named after a Nick Drake album.
Sloan - Pretty Together (Murderecords)
Jeff says: Canadian superheroes of powerpop are back with a new album on their own MurderRecords (since they can't seem to get a US deal).
