More Info:

Danny Newcomb and the Sugarmakers are a power pop/rock band based in Seattle.  They are song- writing oriented, and the focus on Masterwish is on song craft.  That being said, it is an album in the vinyl sense, and has a narrative that encompasses these themes: time passing, love, doing whatever the hell you should be doing according to you.  John Goodmanson (of most recent Sleater-Kinney fame), produced and mixed the record, giving a crisp feel to the guitars, awesome hugeness to the drums, and a tight vocal sound.  Masterwish sounds a little like your favorite 1970's pop record, with good melodies, hooks in the choruses, and almost always a tasty guitar solo.  Think Big Star meets Bad Company, meets Lou Reed, meets Tom Petty.
