Introducing: Peter Buzzelle & Soul Clinic Bible School

Founding member of the Pacific Northwest's Frequency dB, and Boston's formidable popsmith Peter Buzzelle delivered his sophomore set, Museum Of back in January, so it's criminal that it took us this long to get around to writing about it. Better late than never, I suppose. Museum Of is full of Buzzelle's astute and catchy as hell power pop, and at times it reminds us of the finest moments in the aforementioned genre such as The Posies' Frosting On The Beater, Matthew Sweet's Girlfriend, and Big Star's landmark #1 Record, while creating something engaging, original, and completely addicting. Peter recorded Museum Of at End Of The World Studios in Los Angeles with former Bostonian and Helicopter Helicopter/ Hello Dragon fronter Chris Zerby and at home in Jamaica Plain. The album's centerpiece, Nothing Can Break Me is damn near perfect, filled with heartbreak, defiance, and hope with a chorus that soars and sticks with you long after it's reached 3:38 running time. It's O.K. to play twice in fact we recommend you do so.

Peter Buzzelle and Soul Clinic Bible School will play Radio on Friday May 25th with Varsity DragBirdsMakeBirds, and Black Forests Of Opium.
