Poppermost Fan Quotes
Original pop rock music band

What you're saying about Poppermost!

Please tell us what you think.

We're talking to our fans now at Alex's Facebook, Band Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, & Lex Neon's Music Blog.

OK I found some time to type up some thoughts.. been listening and absorbing all week while driving around, (which is a great environment for these songs...) I have to say right upfront that I feel a kinship with you guys as coming from a similar basic preference for 60's gems to 70's AM Gold in our music. We both seem to have The Beatles as the quintessential artistic/aesthetic touchstone, too. Sort of the source stream for musical vision..

"All About You"...
I >LOVE< this song! I hear a sort of Supertramp/REM hybrid vibe... It's so ecstatic it just totally shines up any room it's played in. It has a chugging rhythm that you enter like a river and swim along, love the end fade to harmony section. In an alternate universe where the music mattered this would be huge.

"Angel Wings"
Really tasty ballad. I have to say your heart shines through your voice which is what it's all about at the end of the day. Very human and warm.
Another thing I love about this collection is how it sounds like a fricking greatest hits album! All killer no filler.

Oh man we are getting into some serious sunshine pop here and I am one happy camper! One thing I love about Poppermost is each song has its own hook that just kills. Here it's that guitar ba-da ba-da ba-da ba-da when you're singing "Butterfly" Simple and perfect. Your songs appeal to both head and heart.

"Christine Purple Star"
Were you into the Paisley Underground in the 80's? (Wasn't that an LA thing?) This has a 3 O'Clock / Dukes of Stratosphere retro paisley sound that just kills. Damn this sounds so good.
sort of droney-hypno love wheel 60's tie dyed glory! Wave your freak flags high!

"Dark Summer"
After listening to this collection for a while I started noticing a real REM / Big Star streak running through anything, which kind of surprised me because I'd never noticed you mention them before, but (And I am completely serious when I say this) you guys capture the spirit of those band better than anyone else I've heard compared to them. It's still Poppermost, you are making it your own.

Ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba? Hell yeah, I'm there! This is the "Power Pop" section of the compilation (Which is kind of funny since they are in a random (well, alphabetic is kind of random) order. But the order seems planned? Cool! I fricking LOVE that vocal interlude in the middle where you hit a flatted 7th a couple times... magic!

"Gabriella Sasparilla"
Oh man extra points for that flanged sweep! I dig the fact you guys will take a chance on FX as a brief hooky flavor. Plus organ in a heavy song... kind of has moments that make me think of one of my favorite bands "Paul Revere And The Raiders" Who could really blend heavy/hooky/pop... tight!

Ah I already wrote about this one.. carpal tunnel avoidance / moving on, but BIG LOVE FOR THIS SONG!

"Isabella [Vina]"
Oh collective dudes this is pure awesome sauce. My highest compliment? The 21st century Turtles doing a "Good Vibrations".... and those are two of my all time favorite things. This is dangerously hooky... damn guys... wish I'd written this. A suite of kill-kill topped with pop confection perfection! Dayum...

There isn't a single song in this collection that doesn't have fresh breezes of creative visionary musical sweeps cascading around a great basic song.
Weeeeoooooweeeeeeooooo yeah man, nice!

"Liv Says"
You guys also write about girls.
A lot.
No, I mean A lot. ;-)
Shit... I've been married for 30 years... I can't. This song reminds me of a sort of early eighties sound like Sniff-n-the-Tears or maybe Big Country/Simple Minds-ish? Another point I want to make about your songs is that every single one of them actually (and literally) feels good to listen to.

"Love Sweet Love"
This song almost made me pull over when I first heard it. Swear to God I wrote a song that sounds -just- like this in the late eighties, same groove, same fricking patches... really, it's a mind bending doppleganger... (This would be in my Scritti Politti phase.. we had an ESQ-1, a Sequential six-trak and a DX21 synth all doing.... this!) The main vocal melody is different, but the groove is freaking mojo voodoo for me to listen to it's so close... I've been searching for a cassette tape mix of it and I can't find anything that old.. I'm sure it's buried in the garage. Seriously blew my mind with synchrionicity here.

"Momma B"
Beach Boys produced by Andrew Gold... really tasty. You nail this one.

"Patties Record World"
Is this a commercial? Jangly jangle!

"Then There's Jackie"
What the.....? Freaking amazing, I did not see this coming Van Dyke Park comes by to sing on a Syd era Pink Floyd track with Jethro Tull backing? Wow...

OK, I did short change you a bit on the last three reviews, but my arm is aching by now and I need to get some Z's... Really guys this is a GREAT GREAT collection of tracks... Best Pop I've bumped into since The Red Button! The both of you should be very proud of this... Consider me a fan!

"Wow, 'Isabella Vina' gets better the more I hear it.  It sounds like the Beatles; it has great melody, piano, and harmony.  Kinda catchy -- like it."
tcourtsforever Jan 14 2009 (Comment on our Last.fm page)

"This is an unusual track.  It was hard for me to pigeon hole this one.  Still listening and I don't know what to make of this.  The harmonies are striking, loved the instrumental break galloping along, so many different segments, it kept me listening to the very end.  Yes it's the Beach Boys from Pet Sounds era which is a fine recommendation in itself... Dylan."
Dylan Thermos (UK) Dec 20 2008 ("Isabella Vina" review on our Mixposure page)

"This is great!  I love this...  Extremely well done, and quite timely, too!  Thanks for sharing this.  And thanks for putting me in the spirit of things...  Peace, Jim"
Jims Artificial Eart Nov 16 2008 ("Merry Christmas" review on our Mixposure page)

"I hear some Beach boys in this song... Can't go wrong with that kind of sound... Beautiful arrangements... Super song"

"Really love this track.  Lovely tune and well arranged.  Maybe a touch of Brian Wilson in there (which I'm a big fan of).  Excellent!"
Cheers, Richard John

"This is absolutly excellent. You simply down hear this style anymore and I miss it. It is right on track with all the classic Beatle hits and if you can reproduce these types of songs I would say there is a serious market for you."
-- Surfnorthwest Jun 7 2008 ("Isabella Vina" review on our 
Mixposure page)

"Poppermost has so much to offer musically ~ & it wouldn't surprise me one bit if they have a giant stage presentation with acrobats & white tigers . . .

Vegas is so underrated for Pop / Rock but let me clue you in my friends, as I'd personally spent 10 years in this City of Sin ~ it has one very amazing original music scene that is perpetually on the verge of exploding nationally . . .
The vocals and musicianship of Alex Oliver and Roy Al Rendahl is elegant understatement ~ & the promotional angles from both educational & anime art is just another example of all the time spent in the development & conception of this outstanding band ~ & if you enjoy the softer side of pop ~ I think you're gonna like what Poppermost has to say !!!!!"

The Altruistic Messiah ~ Ben Vandagriff ~ The CEO of Rock & Roll (comment on our Music Nation page)

"Nice little catchy pop number with cool transitions and excellent vocals make this song a great addition to any collection..."

"Yeah, I was just getting into this when it disappeared.  What I heard had an excellent pop feel to it with some really sweet harmonies.  A real teaser.  Would like to hear the rest.  Cheers Brian"

-- reapersg Jun 5 2008 ("Concentrate On Me" review on our Mixposure page)

"I'm just a silhouette (queen) of a mama and papa!  Awesome guitars too!"
-- Mark Alan Dooley, musician (feedback for "Isabella Vina" on our

"Thanks for finding me here.  I LOVE THIS BAND!  Funny coincidence - I still teach music in the public schools in Santa Fe, and the district recently adopted the Clark County, NV music curriculum!  Certainly there's not enough popular music in there, and I am interested in what you are doing to spread pop music history to the youth."
-- dtedfordwheeler, musician (feedback from the Poppermost

"Pretty Awesome...  Love the poppy sound...  Your vocals and harmonies are great... very unique song...  You made me smile."  "Love it.  Great Song...  Love the Piano and Vocals and instrument arrangements...  Wow...  Amazing Talent!"
-- James of Avalon Parade (feedback for "Isabella Vina" and "Kristen" respectively on our 
Music Nation page)

"Being on vacation time on Maui, I wasn't gonna do much listening to bands that I haven't already heard, as it's hard to find a wireless reception.  But I was very curious about Poppermost, and being so genuine in their comments, I just had to listen.  I'm so glad I did!  These gals n guys are rockin!!!  'Isabella-Vina' gave me f***g GOOSE bumps!!  Very classic sound.  You'll swear that you were listening to a classic hit...... but this is soooo new!  They have an incredible mix of melodies and harmonies reminiscent of the Beatles, Mamas and Papas, and The Beach boys.  These are sounds that are NOT easy to achieve.  Seems like this band got very lucky with the fate of having each other, as they all compliment each other so well.  It's like this
...... no one stands out in front of the other, but if you listen to one part as an individual, you'll see that it could easily happen.  But it doesn't.  It's called 'gelling.'  And Hell...... they Gel...... well...... you can tell......  Especially with Isabelle!!  Lol.  Okay, I'm a dork."
-- Aaron A'bellira of Love Sex n Death (a special salute for "Isabella Vina" on our 
Music Nation page)

"I really dig your arrangements, very cool!"
-- Jami, musician (feedback for "Isabella Vina" on our

"Interesting song, very well put together, nice vocals, the harmonies are smart and beautiful, there is almost a Queen type of sensibility to this song, and that is one of the highest compliments I know. Excellent!  [And 'Kristen' is] another song beautifully arranged with those wonderful soaring harmonies.  You guys and gals have it going on for sure!  I like the lead vocals as well, perfect for the song, first-rate musicianship as well.  Quite a talented family - my compliments!"
-- Ricky Sparks, musician (feedback for "Isabella Vina" and "Kristen" on our

-- Andrea I., Illinois

"...have been listening to [Bitter Suite Swan Songs].  I love music... but MY [kind of] music.  I'm not too keen on the more 'modern' kinds we have to endure.  I was so very pleasantly surprised when I was listening to your cd in the car yesterday.  I LOVED IT.  It reminded me of a modern Beachboys... and I loved them.  I enjoyed the lyrics and your blending of voices.  Thank you for putting a smile on my face and I look forward to getting more of your CD's."

"Short Desc: The next REM.  Overall Rating (10 is best): 10.  Following my acquiring the 'Erika' single, which is probably one of the best CD singles to come out of the U.S. in a long time, I found Poppermost's self titled debut album via the internet.  I was not disappointed by the great songwriting, singing, and instrumentation.  I firmly believe Poppermost to be the next really important musical combo to come from the States, in line with the likes of R.E.M.  Absolutely fab!"
-- ACME-US Review of: Poppermost

"Subject: Assbomb.  The drummer on these songs kicks some serious ass.  I could have sworn it was Tommy Lee playing.  He must get a lot of chicks.  Good luck to this incredible band."
-- BW, (feedback from our IUMA page)

"Hey, I really like the new web site design.  I can't believe all the stuff you guys sell.  Poppermost thongs and coffee mugs, that's just so outrageous.  Great marketing."
-- Josh, Watsonville Patio, Portland OR pop rock band

"This band is absolutely amazing.  All the songs are incredible.  This band has real talent and any record label that doesn't pick them up is missing out on a moneymaker!  I especially like 'Cinnamon Sunshine.'  WOW."
-- butterfly, (feedback from our IUMA page)

"You're good!  Like your music!"
-- Teresa Morales, singer, Manila, Philippines (feedback from our Talent Match page)

"Hey guys, this is a fresh, yet familiar sound.  Nice effect you got on the vocal... definite 60-ish with R.E.M. in there, too.  Great driving song!"
-- JAS ("Bang Bang" feedback from our SongRamp page)

"Yo guys!  It's Bret Wice from Asopriam!  Your probably thinking, "Who in the Hell is that?"  Hahahahahaa but that's ok.  You guys are really good... all you need are smashing symbols:)  Sweet ~ Take Care.  Good luck with your music."

          Poppermost >>>>>>>> to the toppermost! >>>>>>>>>>"
-- Noble Vegas

"I finally had a chance to listen to the CD you gave me and I must say I was pleasantly surprised at just how good of a CD it was.  I enjoyed it and I have added it to my personal collection of music, which I don't do for everyone!"
-- Jamie Chvotkin, "Your Ambassador" at CD Baby, online indie music store

"Great Lyrics and Vocals.  The music is emotionally and smoothly honest and the lyrics are a deep and true experience of life."
-- jedicid (feedback from our CD Baby page)

"I haven't got to listen to the CD yet because Mason [Nostrom] stole it from me.  He really loves you guys.  That song 'Lady-In-Waiting' is so good.  I got tears in my eyes when you guys played it.  When you write a song from such a sincere place as that...... that is what music and songwriting is about for me.  Great job at Saigon, you guys rocked!  Hope to see you soon.  KEEP ON ROCKIN!"
-- Sara Patterson, Las Vegas NV singer / songwriter

"Love your music and we played 'Bang Bang' last Sunday.  We intend to feature Poppermost this Sunday."
-- Rick & Nancy Wire, Wiredtogether Radio Show, KNRY, Monterey CA

"I really dig what you guys are doing."
-- Jeff Celentano, Tripsitter, Las Vegas pop band

"Definitely a 10.  This is the best of the best indie music out there today.  The songs are excellent, and the musicianship is absolutely incendiary.  Highly recommended!!"
-- Armand Shoukry (feedback from our Rate Our Band page)

"Make way for a compelling musical presence.  An arresting body of work punctuated with compact, kindred moments of surprising and paradoxical self-reflection.  My personal favorite is 'Cinnamon Sunshine' with its smooth undertones and lyrics that echo Paul Westerberg.  Another track 'Where the Guilty Prayed' speaks to the grief from the unrealized experiences that occur in relationships throughout one's life.  All in all, a worthy and highly recommended compilation of songs.  Listeners will appreciate the wide range of talent and craft present in Poppermost."
-- Roberto Delgadillo (feedback from our CD Baby page)

"We listened to your CD during soundcheck on Tuesday -- sounds great my man."
-- Michael Soli, Las Vegas NV singer / songwriter

"P.S. 'Erika' rules."
-- Dylan Moses, Las Vegas NV singer / songwriter

"You guys ROCK!"
-- Tim Torgerson, former Las Vegas NV now in Montana singer / songwriter

"Songwriting should be personal, image inducing, memorable, and an evolving art that reflects the writer... the new Poppermost single, 'Erika' is all that and a bag of chips!  They [Poppermost] are really going into a direction I like with both their writing and their production.  The sounds and tones are very much their own as well... kudos, kudos, kudos!!!!!"
-- Shawn Eiferman, Las Vegas NV singer / songwriter, former Epstein's Mother and current Ponder frontman

"Absolutely fabulous!  Incredible lyrics and beautiful voices.  I can't remember the last time I listened to a CD over and over again and enjoyed every single song.  The songs have me dancing one minute and self-reflecting the next.  Lyrics that have true meaning and convey a message - what a refreshing change!  Uplifting and moving.  Alex, I wish I could have put into words just how good your music makes me feel.  I haven't taken it out of my computer yet, and I listen to it all the time here at work.  I just love your voice!!!!!  It's so upbeat and of course some of the lyrics hit me 'right there.' :)  I am so happy for you and your band (I'm listening to 'Cinnamon Sunshine' right now).  You're incredibly talented and with your music, you move our hearts and lift our spirits."
-- Emilse Gonzalez (feedback from our CD Baby page)

"Retro, retro, retro!!!!  That's right, it seems the timing may be right on for Poppermost.  With the recent popularity of 'retro-quasi-garage' bands like The Strokes, The Vines, and The White Stripes, Poppermost may have an audience with their sound.  I honestly thought that I had stepped into a time machine and it had transported me to 1968.  It has a VERY retro feel and the guitar work on the instrumental is excellent!"
-- Kelly Jolley (feedback from our CD Baby page)

"We like to cruise Monterey Bay with the windows open and Poppermost cranked up."
-- Tim Berndt, Monterey CA singer / songwriter, The Natural Echo Project

"I like all the songs on the Poppermost CD, but I especially like 'Cinnamon Sunshine', I play that song over and over."
-- Ann Aakry
"I like to listen to all of the songs except 'Cinnamon Sunshine'!"
-- Ann's husband Dave

"The music is addictive, I never get tired of listening to it."
-- Noble Vegas

"Damn good [Poppermost] CD by the way!"
-- Derek Sivers, Founder of CD Baby, online indie music store
