Love is the Name of the Game as More New Music is Added to the Pure Pop Radio Playlist

We’ve got two spectacular additions to our playlist today, and they couldn’t be any more different from each other if they tried. First up, Kenny Herbert’s fantastic Forever & Beyond. Here is Alan’s review:

kenny herbert forever and beyondKenny Herbert | Forever & Beyond “And there was love, love, love, love/Anyone could see that there was love/Love all over me,”sang Danny Wilson in their song “The Second Summer of Love,” and truer words have never been spoken, for love, love, love, love is what there is, what lives within us, what shines above and around us, what makes us whole.

Veteran musician and songwriter Kenny Herbert, with pals Rab Howat and Pilot’s David Paton in tow, is all about love on his fabulous new album, Forever and Beyond. These 14 romantic songs, inspired by Caroline, the love of Kenny’s life, are tremendously affecting, beautifully drawn snapshots of a happy existence. Throughout, Kenny’s emotional vocals shine.

From the 1930s-styled shuffle of “My All Time Love,” which glistens with a beautifully-played, spare and jazzy guitar solo, and the 1950s vibe of “My Favourite Everything,” which features gorgeous background vocal harmonies, to the lovely mid-tempo ballad “This Lovin’ Feelin'” and the upbeat, hit-worthy, toe-tapping ode to the effect that the Beatles have had on us all,”It’s All Good,” this is a spectacular, lovingly realized collection–a fine assemblage that will do no less than charm listeners worldwide.

Produced by David Paton, Forever and Beyond is the romantic, melodic pop music album to beat this year. We’re playing all 14 songs in rotation: “Forever and Beyond (Our Wedding Song),” “It’s a Wonderful Life,” “Queensferry Girl,” “You,” “This Lovin’ Feelin’,” “It’s All Good,” “Waving to Trains,” “Caroline,” “My Favourite Everything,” “My All Time Love,” “Falling,” “Nobody But You,” “Paradise Falls,” and “Love Very Much (Live Demo).” Love, love, love, love this album.

And here is our second new add to the playlist for today:

euro trash single artEuro Trash | “Mature” From Norway comes a band with much promise, as evidenced by their new single, “Mature.” This power-popping number is all about the guitars, and the guitars, too; the singalong chorus and the infectious melody and harmonies are powerful and the song is hooky indeed. The whole thing gets under your skin lickety-split. So, of course, we’re playing this one in rotation. (Thanks to Caddy’s Tom Dahl for tipping this one our way.)

That’s it for this week’s look at some of the new songs and artists newly playing in rotation on Pure Pop Radio. More next week. Meanwhile, why not check out our 24-hour stream by clicking on one of the listen links below. Pure Pop Radio is playing the soundtrack of your lives!
