So I’m not sure if you guys have heard, but my favorite boys Archie Powell & the Exports recently announced the release date of their sophomore album. Along with a super-slick new website, the guys revealed that Great Ideas In Action will be available in all its power pop glory on May 1. Best of all, you can get the first song for free on Bandcamp — now!
“Metronome” is classic AP&E, with a hook you can’t resist and some sassy lyrics to boot. It fulfills the one thing that you always can count on from this Chicago quartet: Instant party in your earholes. Even though we still have to wait in stitches for the new album, which is sure to be a stunner (don’t even pretend like you don’t know it will), you can just throw this baby on repeat in the meantime.
