If you dig smart pop-rock guitar work, the latest from The 88 will be right up your alley. A listen to Over and Over will enable you to predict with relative certainty what records these guys have in their collections, and that list includes the Who, the Kinks, the Cars, and various Beatles/post-Beatles offerings. They mix their influences into a delightful blend that is catchy and rocking, with great dynamics, cool melodies, and awesome guitar tones from start to finish. Keith Slettedahl and Brandon Jay handle the 6-string duties, and they shine particularly brightly on the Leslie-tinged “Nobody Cares,” the rocking “Battle Scar,” and “You Belong to Me,” with its woody, Stones-approved acoustic timbres. The 88 are the best band with a number in their name since Marvelous 3. (EMK/Mootron) —Matt Blackett
