Choo Choo Train - Briar Rose EP


Rick Menck and Paul Chastain, the dynamic duo of indiepop, is like Lennon and McCartney of rock and roll or Kobe and Shack of basketball (or Kobe and Pau would be more appropriate?). Both had come a long way, from the not so famous Bag O Shell then to The Springfields (not even sure which came first) and way later on to the post 90s indiepop outfit Velvet Crush. They were known for creating 60s-influenced, melodic powerpop, kinda like what Teenage Fanclub were known for. So if you've come across any of those bands mentioned just grab em, for sure they are quality indiepop for keeps!
