[Edit]

Many contemporary artists who push the power-pop button lean toward the genre's frenetic, three-chords-or-die approach, but Seattle's Red Jacket Mine favors more nuanced tactics. On Someone Else’s Cake, RJM (fronted by Memphis-bred tunesmith Lincoln Barr) focuses on that late-‘70s moment when warm, organic British pub rock began mutating into a more modern mode of power pop under the often-ambiguous umbrella of new wave. But Barr and his boys are far more than the rock 'n' roll equivalent of Civil War re-enactors—they roll these influences into a rucksack with a dash of ‘60s garage rock, the melodic sophistication of ‘70s art-pop crossover kings (see early Steely Dan, Todd Rundgren), and a touch of the Southern soul that's part of Barr’s musical birthright. Even with that fertile formula in place, Someone Else’s Cake keeps throwing curveballs; the steady-rolling groove of “Engineer,” for instance, could be a cousin of Norman Greenbaum’s “Spirit in the Sky,” while “Have You Got a Permit to Preach on This Corner?” takes a country road.
