Waltham is a band from Massachusetts that released some very good music in the first half of the 00's, heavily influenced by the melodic rock sound of the eighties. Well, Frank Pino Jr. and his mates haven't disappeared: they're finishing working on their second full-length album, entitled "Wicked Waltham", that will hit the shelves next Summer.
The first song to be lifted off the new record is the Rick Springfield-inspired "You're Everything That I Want": watch the iPhone Text Lyric Video clicking on the image.

Hey! Hello! is a "noisy pop" side-project by Ginger Wildheart (former The Wildhearts' frontman) and Victoria Liedke and features Ginger playing all instruments, a feat for which he had to learn drums.
"Black Valentine" is the opening track taken from Hey! Hello!'s self-titled debut album; here's what Ginger had to say about the song: "Black Valentine is that person in your life who doesn't understand personal space and turns intimacy into an endurance test. It's a new person in your life who is still on trial and not doing a great job so far. But you give them a second chance – and a third. Hell, you're lonely… what else ya gonna do?"
BV is an extremely catchy powerpop song that you can download for free, visiting the Hey! Hello! bandcamp page (enter "0" in the "Buy Now" box).
"How I Survived The Punk Wars" is the first single off the album. Catch it now if you still haven't clicking on the frame above.
This isn't the first time I feature these guys, and it surely won't be the last, 'cos Ghost Beach are getting better song after song.
Take this new track, "Close Enough": soaring synths, hard-hitting beats, magic eighties styled refrain and the great vocals of guest Noosa to smartly contrast the male ones.
