The sounds of ’90s power-pop are alive and well with Supercrush, complete with the sugar-sweet hooks, sun-dappled harmonies and disarmingly badass guitar solos you expect from the genre. They’re clearly revenant disciples of that era’s great pop practitioners — Teenage Fanclub, the Posies, Redd Kross — and if you’ve ever blissed out to any of those artists, Supercrush will be right up your alley. But make no mistake: This is no mere pastiche act. The Seattle quartet’s originals are little masterpieces of melody, and if you didn’t catch them during this year’s Volume festival, don’t miss ’em this time.
