Paul McCartney states that new musicians shouldn’t so much imitate The Beatles but rather write original music “based on the inspiration”. Texas-based singer-songwriter Michael Laine Hildebrandt is doing just that—

This is the kind of album you can lose yourself in, as the orchestrations and elastic melodies wash over you. The mood is buoyant, the music is joyous, the feeling you get is one of euphoria. What more could you ask for? Songs like the in-your-face celebration of life, "Today is Beautiful," really take you away.

'Don't miss this one!

"BGO II is filled with soaring songs, classical elements, uplifting lyrics and more than a little ’70s retro vibe"

 ((( Here is a Brand NEW review of BGO II )))


Going through the burgeoning pile of music for additions to the Pure Pop Radio
playlist, day 3. Today's first listen is to Bubble Gum Orchestra's second album, titled II, a smart, pleasing immersion in the sound of the Electric Light Orchestra, orchestrated by Michael Laine Hildebrandt, who knows the territory well and guides the listener through it with great skill.

This is the kind of album you can lose yourself in, as the orchestrations and elastic melodies wash over you. The mood is buoyant, the music is joyous, the feeling you get is one of euphoria.

I'll be adding a few songs from II to the Pure Pop Playlist in the next few days.
Don't miss this one!

BGO RECORDS -
As a follow up album to the late 2011 / early 2012 CD release of Out Of This World, singer-songwriter Michael Laine Hildebrandt returns at the end of 2012 with Bubble Gum Orchestra II, the second album from his band Bubble Gum Orchestra. Although much younger then his mentors from the original classic rock crowd from the mid to late 1970s, Hildebrandt maintains a reverence for the classic bands from that era including Electric Light Orchestra, The Buggles, ABBA and scads of other top 40 favorites and he gets to live out his sonic fantasy once again with BGO II. Hildebrandt's upbeat musical demeanor is quite contagious on tracks like “Today Is Beautiful”, “Oh Can We Save It” and “Loving One Another”. Sure you can hear traces of upbeat Steve Miller meets The Buggles meets Jeff Lynne but there’s also a cool futuristic 21st century thing in play on the new BGO CD. The CD packaging is excellent and the enclosed lyrics booklet shines a light on just how well BGO mix words and music.
