International Pop Overthrow: Volume 22

Release date: September 27, 2019

 

Pre-Order 3-CD $21.98

Latest in the long-running International Pop Overthrow series.

Omnivore Recordings and The International Pop Overthrow Music Festival are proud to present International Pop Overthrow: Volume 22, a 3-CD compilation featuring 69 tracks by artists from all over the world who have played the International Pop Overthrow festival—along with some who haven’t.

The IPO compilation series goes back as far as the 1998 when Volume 1 was a single disc. Since then, the compilation had expanded to two discs the following year, and then three discs in 2002 for Volume 5, and it has remained a three-disc set through 2019. International Pop Overthrow: Volume 22 showcases artists from 10 different countries, doing just about every sub-genre of pop music, including power pop, pop/rock, folk/pop, psychedelic pop, garage, indie-rock, modern rock, etc., making it one of the most well-rounded compilations available to the general public.

 

Although the International Pop Overthrow festival is essentially a showcase for unsigned bands, the compilation has featured some signed acts, and some who have gone on to be signed. These include:

  • Jason Falkner
  • Brendan Benson
  • Roger Joseph Manning Jr. (Jellyfish, Imperial Drag)
  • AM Radio
  • Marvin Etzioni (Lone Justice)
  • Shoes (Power pop legends)
  •  

    Among those acts on Volume 22 to watch out for include:

  • Velvet Starlings (Young upstarts from Los Angeles)
  • Bird Streets (Previously unreleased track, featuring Jason Falkner)
  • The Top Boost (Great young band from Vancouver)
  • Dave Rave (Member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame)
  • Peter Holsapple (The dBs main man and pop music icon)
  • Van Duren (Power pop legend)
  • Kimberley Rew and Lee Cave-Berry (Kimberley is a founding member of The Soft Boys)
  •  

    When mainstream pop/rock fans are played any volume of the IPO compilation, their first response is invariably “this is great; I had no idea people were still making music like this!” Well, they certainly are, and you can find some of the best examples of it on IPO Volume 22.
