Strange Pop
Stream entire Station
Link to this page
Inventive arty pop/rock songs that have that certain strangeness but the beauty of great hooks too..
A place where all the most art school strange leftfield pop n rock songs on IAC end up..These people are musical mathematicians n artists,but they bring pop hooks to the table amidst their strangeness..Station Owner Steve Ison

When God started to sing
Intelligent creative strange melodic pop/rock that seems to mix Queen/Muse,Queens Of The Stone Age,Emo,Jellyfish,Rufus Wainwright,The Killers and oh..i'm clutching at straws-they don't really sound like anyone in particular-which is of course a good thing.. added to station 1/22/2008 11:05:41 PM

The Oliver Moore Band
For The Sake
Starts off like a bluesy voodoo thing with cluckin' cowbell and modernsinister vibe then develops into a really intriguing left-field pop song when more space suddenly opens up..interesting and wonderfully concise.. added to station 2/4/2008 10:40:09 PM

Tally Hall
The Bidding
Very clever pop in the tradition of Steely Dan,10cc and THere Might Be Giants-even the Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band....Lots of great changes and i really like its linear structure..Hardly ever hear that in a pop song.. added to station 1/5/2008 12:10:44 AM

Hiccup Lines
Mancino are a wonderful, highly individual New York group with a free spirited,playful creativity and songwriting imagination that transcends small minded genre limitations..Hiccup Lines is a delightfully ambitious track coming on like a mischeivous song from some dark broadway musical.. As played by an ultra cool post-punk,60s Kinks style,strange prog -pop band...Excellent.. added to station 12/17/2007 11:11:17 AM

The City Veins
Strike Up the Band
Well i'm incredibly flattered to see they've picked ison-adelic as their genre..Altho my ego would like to belive otherwise,i'm guessing they havn't got a clue who i am at all n just picked it randomly..Its a strange lollopin' beast of a track in 6/8,interesting n moody with ace slow reverby ooooooo-wahhhhh backing vocals (I've also used them on I KNow A Good Thing) added to station 12/24/2007 4:32:48 PM

Babel by the mouthful

Katherine's Ghost Babies
Hahahaha..This is a great electro-psych-pop song with brilliant witty lyrics both sinister and hilarious. Really creative,beautifully crafted chromatic tune too..Even tho electro-pop isn't generally my thang-this song's just far too good to let go. The 'Eeerrie Voice-es' melodic pinch from the end of 'I Can See For Miles' is fab.. added to station 11/9/2007 10:00:34 PM

Mr Bountiful
Fabulously ramshackle and exhuberant guitar-pop track with brilliant lyric.Sort of Libertines meet Gang Of Four meet The Beatles.The melody is so intuitively wonderful,i could even picture it being played in some off-broadway musical..Excellent added to station 8/16/2006 7:49:12 AM
