REVIEW: Wyatt Blair - Banana Cream Dream 12" LP (Burger, Lolipop)

Like so many cool things in the world of underground music I'm waaaaay late to the party on this, but I was so pleased with Wyatt Blair's debut[?] LP, released on Burger and Lolipop Records in 2013 and 2014 respectively, that I couldn't not review it.  Blair is nailing the classic power pop vibe here and presents it with such an energetic, often zany vibe that you forget that this music has remained out the mainstream for upwards of 30 years.  Its not unlike Mathew Melton's approach with the now defunct Bare Wires, but Blair's take on this style cuts through the fog in it own, neon-kitche-electric-hamburger-joint-endless-summer sort of way.  And the hooks....ohhhh the sweet, sweet hooks.  To be sure its one of the best records I've heard in a hot minute.  Get it here.
