ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Mr. Adragna finds a newish path through the well-trod fields of pop/
rock. He claims influence from REM and The Monkees, and I believe it.
- Ink 19

The Junior League aka Joe Adragna once again has delivered some pop goodness to follow up his debut “Catchy”. The new album has plenty of sharp pop craft along the lines of REM jangle and The Beatles, with a touch of Toad The Wet Sprocket. Joe is more than a one man band here....The songs are cleanly produced and well written –
--Powerpopaholic

“…for power-pop fiends—and hopeless romantics who deal with
rejection by rocking out—it will serve well. Adragna’s pop-rock
classicism, which makes the album everything the title promises
(especially on “This Is What We Are”) skitters eloquently between
jangle, garage revivalism and folky alt-pop.”
- offBeat

... a beautifully woven collection of luminous, melodic '60s-style pop
songcraft in the vein of the Revolver-era Beatles or Syd Barrett's Pink
Floyd with plenty of tambourines and handclaps.
- Gambit Weekly

When you title an album "Catchy", you're either being ironic or
confident. In the case of the Junior League (actually singer/songwriter/
multi-instrumentalist Joe Adragna), it's clearly the latter. Adragna has
crafted a fine disc of breakup and post-breakup songs in a power pop
setting that calls to mind many of the touchstones of the genre.
- Absolute Power Pop

The Junior League play tight, well-crafted, sunny pop in the vein of
the Beatles and the Monkees as well as their slightly more bitter,
tongue-in-cheek inheritors like '90s Britpop invaders Oasis and Blur.
There's also quite a bit of influence audible from angelic alt-country
brooders like Rhett Miller of the Old 97's. You'll hear plenty of sharp
turns of phrase cradling sentiments that are at the same time bitter,
wistful and romantic. But for the most part, it's just darn foot-tapping
catchy.
- Gambit Weekly

"Catchy" could not be a more appropriate name. 12 String Jangle
Alert, too! The Junior League are for Major League power pop Fans of
Sloan, The Gripweeds, classic Lemonheads power pop, Big Star and
bands that have been influenced by Buffalo Springfield but are making
modern-day pop, The Junior League are IT.
