Best known for writing and playing catchy 1960s-influenced power pop that inspired countless alternative rockers including Kurt Cobain. “2011”, their first album of new material in 12 years. Produced by Don Dixon (who helmed “Especially For You”, the group’s breakout debut), features 13 new tracks and finds the seminal New Jersey rockers picking up right where they left off: with irresistibly catchy hooks and rapturously fuzzed-out guitars. World Cafe Live at the Queen.
