Album Notes
Tommy Sistak has released his album, titled, “Short Songs.” The album is comprised of 12 original tracks for an approximate total listening time of half an hour, making for a comprehensive treatment of Sistak material and a round introduction to this legitimate and jumping 1960′s pop revival. Intuitively, Sistak’s “Short Songs” is populated almost uniformly with tracks between two and a half and three minutes. The product is an EP that never gets tiresome, as its themes are widely varied across 12 singles with an overall length that is refreshingly brief while remaining sonically rich and textured. Sistak’s signature sound is purposefully designed after the rock ‘n’ roll pop style of the 1960s, which centered around three-part vocal harmonies, electric guitars and upbeat drum rhythms. This resulting tone is absolutely reminiscent of the Beatles’ iconic early sound as heard on songs such as “Love Me Do” and “Hard Day’s Night.” - Sonic Smash Music review.

Tommy Sistak | “Yeah She Said So” and Short Songs Well, here’s what’s cooking: A new song and a new album and together they’re the holy grail of whoa-listen-to-that records that only sound like they were recorded in the poppin’ 1960s. Tommy Sistak’s individual love letters to our favorite era for catchy tunes are short–mostly two minutes and change–and sweet…oh, how they are sweet! Broadly speaking, Tommy’s drawing from the sounds of British invasion bands (Beatles, check) and vocal acts such as the Everly Brothers for a catchy and oh-so-charming half hour’s worth of lovingly-crafted and performed pop music that, and we’re saying this more often than in recent times, belongs in every pop fan’s collection and should, without question, be on a whole lot of best-of lists this year. The new song, “Yeah She Said So,” released in late March, is a crowd-pleasing pop-rocker blaring a combination of thunderous drums and vocal harmonies. We’re playing the entire Short Songs collection, as you might figure: “And So It Goes,” “Be Good,” “In So Many Ways,” “Just Like Before,” “Let Her Go,” “Never Want to Be Blue,” “Ordinary Words,” “Ordinary Words (Unplugged),” “Seems Like You’re There,” “Think About Me,” “Whisper In Your Night,” and “You’ll Come My Way.” Here is your go-to, retro masterpiece for 2015. - Alan Haber , Pure Pop Radio review.

ommy Sistak grew up playing in garage bands in suburban Chicago. His band Bagshot Row, is a classic oldies outfit that has opened for Davy Jones of the Monkees, Peter Noone and Herman’s Hermits, and Eric Burdon and the Animals. Sistak’s syle is most decidedly early Beatles, with its rich Rickenbacker jangle and three-part vocal harmonies. Staring with “Think About Me” its all about the short, punchy pop, when mid 60’s pop ruled the radio.
This is guilt free goodness, and Sistak keeps them coming, “Ordinary Words” and “Whisper In the Night” are fast paced gems, but what puts them above the fray of other Beatlesque bands are the excellent chord progressions and the occasional deeper bass fuzz. Even switching to a softer multi-tracked acoustic on “Be Good” like The Cyrkle makes a nice change of pace. A happy guilty pleasure here; scratch that Fab itch with Tommy.

Super well done 60's type brit invasion style songs. Great melodies and simple at that. Songs would fit right in with the power houses of that day. - Musicpage reviewer

Hello the Everly Brothers I like it, great sixties feel.
Truly a '60s sound, as if a contemporary of the Beatles. - Broadjam Music reviewer
