CD REVIEW - Midnight Reruns

Midnight Reruns – Self-titled (Good Land Records)
In case you were wondering what happened to Power Pop - with Superdrag packing it in after their front man found religion and Material Issue long gone – apparently it’s alive and well and living in Milwaukee; in the form of Midnight Reruns.
This jangle-happy guitar band, founded after former Trapper Schoepp & The Shades guitarist Graham Hunt fled the Shades and stepped in front of the mic, plays a bratty fun mix of kick out the jams distorted guitars with sing-along choruses. And while not every track on their self-titled debut catches your attention, the songs that do, stick with you for days.

The last three songs in particular, (“Summer Smoker,” “Signals From the Blue” and “Basement Guy”) each with their own distinctive vibe from fast-tempo Replacements-esque rocker to more low-key jangle pop, go to show the band’s range and wildly broad appeal.
