I am so thrilled to hear that Hop Litzwire and his bandpals have opened the melodic factory again where we have mass production of smashing power pop bombs, I see them as saviours in a decadent music business.
I adored their 2003 album "Muscle" that was released under Adventures of Jet, but now the Dallas based band returns to their original name Bobgoblin. "Love lost for blood lust" is their first release under the moniker in 14 years so we´re talking sparkling wine and fireworks here at Palace of Rock.
This is first class power pop with lovely harmony changes, indeed a smorgasbord of delicate melodies.
Highlights : Waiting for the sun, Hide from tomorrow, Danger
