Take the fiery guitars of bands like Television, Flamin´ Groovies and The Dream Syndicate, add a pinch of Lou Reed and The Velvet Underground and a dash of magic melodies with a dark edge. Bring to the boil with a soulful and groovy base of drums and bass. Stir well and season to taste with the finest spices from the legacy of rock and roll – from Hank to Hendrix, from Gram to The Long Ryders, from The Beatles to Alex Chilton, from Townes to Paul K, from Coltrane to Television. The list goes on…

Years of hard work and musical growth have given Lannie Flowers wisdom attained from near-stardom and a wealth of experiences. He explains the thinking behind his latest collection of jangly pop gems – “In 2008, ‘Same Old Story’ was released. It was a musical collage comprised of snippets of songs strung together to tell the story of teenage boredom, boy meets girl, boy loses girl, etc. In the years that followed, fans from across the globe began submitting lists of songs they wanted to hear in their full-length versions. The most requested songs were tallied, and work began on ‘New Songs Old Stories’. It’s 2012 and finally the project is completed. Two extra songs from that era were put on the album for good measure; this album is solely by request.” “On the face of it, one gets the impression that traditional power-pop is becoming something of a dying art form; either that or it’s becoming more an more ensconced underground as the years progress. 1990s stalwarts Matthew Sweet and The Posies still retain some of their visibility, while cult-classic originators such as The Rubinoos and Spongetones soldier on. Luckily there are still some singer/songwriters with purist sensibilities like Lannie Flowers who continue to cut records in the same mold as some of the aforementioned!” – BigTakeover.com “As far as Lannie Flowers is concerned there can never be too much of a good thing, especially when that good thing is juicy melodic power pop. Taken out of the context of the album nearly every track would sparkle on its own as a little gem. That’s more than enough for me.” – Pure Pop Pub “His expertise with crafting contagious melodies emerges again. Check out Lannie Flowers if you like the Posies, Cheap Trick, The Raspberries, or Wanderlust.” – Bill’s Music Forum Of course, as seasoned fans of power pop, this one’s a no-brainer!
