Steve Barton

I've got this album of sort of aggressive, angsty power pop from Steve Barton, an LA-based songwriter who was apparently involved in Translator and who has four previous solo albums to his credit. A couple of tracks, the ones that I like best, sound kind of like acoustic Ted Leo...that is, played on unamplified instruments about as hard as they'll go, with a great deal of edge and grit.

Here's "Bowie Girl"...what do you think?
