VARIOUS ARTISTS: Volume Two Instant Singles Collection: CD

Great idea, a bunch of bands each contributing an EP’s worth of music all in a neatly packaged CD that looks just like a 7”. This second singles collection from Boss Tuneage is a mixture of international pop punk talent with bands from Japan, Belgium, and even Scotland. There were six bands to choose from, but only Rope (British power pop punk) stood out with their infectious pop-melodic sound and a rhythmic bass groove that really stood out. Innerface from Belgium make a splash with a great cover of “Hanging on the Telephone” by Blondie.
