Album Notes once called Frisbie, "One of the best and most ambitious pop bands in America." One listen to New Debut re-affirms that praise. New Debut is the long-awaited follow-up to The Subversive Sounds of Love, a critical darling that cast Frisbie as power pop saviors. (The Chicago Tribune's Greg Kot called it "the power pop album of the year.") Frisbie ended their fall 2000 tour with a personal invitation to open two shows for Wilco. This was the latest in a long list of exciting shows for the band, including gigs with Cheap Trick, Matthew Sweet, Big Star, Guided By Voices, Old 97's, Marshall Crenshaw and Tahiti 80.
A series of personal trials delayed a follow-up, but now, Frisbie has released New Debut, a 40-minute burst of imaginative and affecting songs. While The Subversive Sounds of Love was rooted in the pop of the 60's, New Debut reveals a love for the guitar rock of the 70's. So much happens in these three-minute tunes as producer Matt Thompson breaks out the harmonic density of every song. Frisbie still boasts two of the finest singers anywhere, yet the emotions of their soaring vocals are more deeply revealed in the unexpected rhythms and timbres of the music. In short, New Debut will kick you in the head and the pants.

New Debut
early squeeze, meets early XTC, throw in a bit of beatles and you have this PLEASURE POP, album! I haven't been this excited about a band in a long time. Sing a long even if you don't know the words, the melody just carry you right along. These are new songs that sound like old favorites. Why isn't this band huge, selling millions of albums!!

Brilliant! Can't wait to see Frisbie in a stadium.

Deserves Emmy, or something
An absolute killer album, the kind to restore a longtime pop music fan's waning adherence to the power pop cause. Great singing, brilliant arranging - "Disaster," "Shame o," "Yes Impossible" all of Jellyfish standards - impeccable, on the level of Butterfly Jones, Spongetones, Pillbugs - absolute world-class contemporary power pop.

The kind of rock and pop that makde living in the 70's not so sucky
Infectious is what Frisbie's brand of power pop is, and with their brand new album New Debut (Appendix), they prove why they should be the rightful monarchs of the power pop crown.

They sound like some of the best of the guitar-driven pop bands of the late 60's and 70's, and don't mind wearing their influences on their sleeves, as they do in "S.F.B." when vocalist Liam Davis sings do you remember the cheap trick that you played on me? In fact, much of their sound is reminiscent of a lot of AM gold from the likes of Styx and at least in the title track, some of the vocal harmonies sound a bit like 1971-era Yes. What this band does more than anything is show how well that sound has aged, and that there's nothing wrong with short-but-sweet rockers about love, fear, hope, and getting naked for the fun of it. This is very much music of the now, and it's great to hear songs that are for the most part radio-friendly (with the exception of the you're so fucking beautiful references in "S.F.B.") The melodies and arrangements are well done and the lyrics aren't too deep nor are they disposable. This is the kind of rock that made living in the 70's not so sucky. It's the new New Debut, how the hell are you?


Great music can't wait to see you in person someday. where are you going to be next?????


Great record!
This is a great record! I love this band. The songs are totally catchy -- they will get stuck in your head. See them live. Also, there's a cute baby on the cover.
