Travis Ramin: now on Bandcamp!!
Bandcamp page! As both a producer and performer, he's been responsible for some of the most enduring power pop, garage, and girl band recordings of the past 20 years. If I had to come up with a short-list of individuals most responsible for the modern day resurgence of power pop, he'd be on it! Most of his notable productions have gone out of print and become nearly impossible to find. Now - with just a few clicks of your mouse - you can own classic late '90s/early 2000s releases by Candygirl, Tina And The Total Babes, Nikki Corvette, and The Short Fuses! And if you still haven't heard more recent Ramin productions like the self-titled Ana Lucia LP (my #7 album of 2012!) or Holly Beth Vincent's "Hey Boy" 7", now's your chance! Download prices are very reasonable ($7 for albums, $3 for EPs), and there's also a merch section where you can order hard copies of the releases Travis still has in stock.
Do yourself a favor and check out all the good stuff Travis has made available for download. That Tina And The Total Babes LP is one of my five favorite power pop albums of all-time. I'm so psyched that a whole new generation of fans will now get to hear it! Remember Sundaegirl, the bubblegum "kid sister" band to Candygirl? You can check out that EP as well - along with a brand-new offering from Candygirl's bad girl cousin, Motorgirl! And nobody's digital music collection is complete without the Travis solo hit, "Right Hot Dog, Wrong Bun". Have at it, my friends!
