The Merrymakers - Bubblegun

This is one of the best power pop albums I own. It's so astoundingly sweet that my brain can't hardly handle it all at once. The Merrymakers hail from Sweden, a land known for its sugary-sweet pop. This album benefits greatly from the production of Andy Sturmer (of Jellyfish fame) who brings a bit of the old Jellyfish charm to the album. The result is harmonies so thick and gooey they stick in your ears, and arrangements lavish enough to set before a king. This is power pop beyond reproach.
