Archie Powell & the Exports

There's nothing worse than a crappy band begging you to check out their MySpace page, but luckily Archie Powell found me via Last.fm. Noting our mutual appreciation of Paul Westerberg's 'Dyslexic Heart', I gave their power-pop rocking EP a download, and was pleasantly surprised.

That was a couple of albums ago. Now Chicago's Archie Powell & the Exports have a new album due on May 1st called Great Ideas in Action, and a new single, 'Crazy Pills', below.
