Tommy Keene “You Hear Me: A Retrospective 1983-2009”

(Second Motion) Keene has never been a superstar, but as arguably the most respected power pop dude for a coupla decades amongst  a small and devoted group of power pop fanatics (inevitably including people, who own or make decisions for labels) he gets to keep putting out his fine songs. Why none of his near perfect tunes aren’t monster hits I can’t say and why there aren’t millions of fans for a genre that is basically Beatles tribute music is also weird. But celebrate those mysteries on this generous collection, and see what I’m talking about, and be pleasantly confused about this puzzles yourself.
