TK # 73 - Old 97's - Satellite Rides (2001)

On Satellite Rides, the Old 97’s leave the country behind and dive headfirst into no frills power pop. Lead 97 Rhett Miller has a mile-wide romantic streak, and here he burnishes the proposal to be of “Question”, the flirty come-on of “Buick City Complex” and the titanic “King of All The World” with insidious melodies that just won’t leave you alone. A special shout out to Philip Peeples, whose propulsive drumming is the band’s secret weapon.
