Proto's Quarantine Digs

Since the end of 2019 until this year, I have discovered a lot of excellent Power Pop albums that somehow flew off my radar, which is strange because it contains most of the things I really love in music, jangling guitars, dope vocal harmonies, and simply pleasurable melodic hooks with a big pop sensibility, but also with some experimentation with Psychedelia. This last semester though I was really dedicated and very happy on a nice trip back to the sunshine years of the 60's, discovering and rediscovering a lot of Sunshine Pop, folky vibes, harmonies heavy and baroque stuff, but also some raw Psych Garage and some nice country outings. A lot of stuff here that I think deserve way more attention on sput.
