It All Comes Back In Good Time

Shockingly, The Posies released their debut album way back in 1988! Yep. Failure is 26 years old. I am way older than that and feeling it when I learned that they recorded this when they were teenagers! Seriously? At Least For Now and Longest Line were written and recorded by teenagers?

Failure is a fun listen because of how raw and homemade it sounds, yet it is absolutely the dawn of one of the greatest power pop artists of our generation. Just like they've done with their Jellyfish releases, Omnivore Recordings is memorializing this benchmark in the band's history with a deluxe reissue due August 19. The album is "restored" and includes an extra batch of rare tunes with one previously unreleased.

This is history, Too Poppers. Educate thyself.
