Feels So Lazy, Come On and Play Me

Man. Sometimes, Not Lame gets it just right. They didn't disappoint a while back with Fred, and now they highly recommend Willie Wisely. In fact, they're calling it "one of the most brilliant power pop records of the decade." Wow. To prove it, they're providing an unconditional guarantee and throwing in four free gifts if you pre-order his new CD Parador. And you can even preview it in its entirety here. You can't lose.

I've spent a little time listening to it. Keep in mind that I'm listening to it on a low-end laptop while my humidifier is going full blast and my kids are sleeping upstairs. So this isn't an optimal listening environment, but I have to say, I'm very impressed. If you find some middle ground between Michael Penn and Bleu, Wisely would be right there. I can't wait to give it a proper listening-to when I get it from Not Lame soon. Sweet. I love new finds and I love to support Not Lame. Good people selling good music.

The new Willie Wisely is definitely one I would have gotten on name alone. The Trio put out a pair of great studio albums (Raincan more akin to Andrew Bird's first Bowl of Fire release) and had a fantastic live show, but Wisely's solo work took things to a whole new level.
