Album Review: 'Play It Cool' by Kurt Baker

Title: Play It Cool (BandCamp [Kurt Baker], BandCamp [Rum Bar Records], Amazon, iTunes, Interpunk)

Kurt Baker's second proper full-length album Play It Cool is power pop perfection. Baker has this style of music down pat and seems to have an endless supply of great songs up his sleeve. The 12 song record takes on all of the usual power pop suspects with songs about girls, partying, rocking, and girls driven by three chords and a big fat smile. Fans of early Cheap Trick, early Elvis Costello, Material Issue, The Smithereens, or power pop in general need, NEED to be listening to Kurt Baker. A lot. Like all the freaking time. So get to it.
