I thought I’d round out this Halloween week with some ear candy, Five power pop treats that won’t require a trip to the dentist afterwards. First up, what may in fact be the quintessential power pop masterpiece, Starry Eyes by The Records. Followed up in quick succession by Bram Tchiakovsky’s sing along ode to a blow-up doll, Aussie wonders The Someloves, some love from the girls with Holly Beth Vincent and her band The Italians, and wrapping a it all up with a sweet one from Something Happens. There’s plenty here for a good sugar rush but with no calories and no cavities.

1: The Records – Starry Eyes
Buy The Records/Shades In Bed
2: Bram Tchaikovsky – Girl Of My Dreams
Buy Strange Man Changed Man
3: The Someloves – Know You Now
Buy Don’t Talk About Us
4: Holly And The Italians – Tell That Girl To Shut Up
Buy The Right To Be Italian
5: Something Happens – What Now
Buy Stuck together With God’s Glue
