Mike Bell & The Movies is a power-pop powerhouse made up of members from Algernon Cadwallader, Bandname, and Dangerous Ponies. The music they make is carefree and fun to listen to. In a sea of records that are done incredibly well, but are incredibly melancholy this feels like a breath of fresh air.

Just imagine if Joyce Manor and Smash Mouth (you can keep pretending you weren’t a fan) were to create a collaborative record. The short, pop punk song structure Joyce Manor is known for paired with the carefree pop attitude Smash Mouth absolutely had make for an incredible summer record. You can stream their newest record Nothing Works in full after the cut.
