Flashes of Quincy Dough­nut Records dough­nu­trecords.wee­

Snow­ball II — yes, named af­ter the cat from The Simp­sons — is the record­ing project of L.A.’S Jack­son Wargo, a pro­lific new­comer who’s on his third al­bum in a year. A shoegaze la­bel is ha­bit­u­ally ap­plied to Snow­ball II, but it def­i­nitely isn’t war­ranted — Flashes of Quincy is joy­ous, guitar-for­ward pop in the vein of Band of Horses and Guided By Voices, with lyrics that res­ur­rect ’90s al­ter­na­tive rock. It must make a great live show (Wargo re­cruits a full band for the stage) — and is guar­an­teed to in­duce toe tap­ping. (All re­views by Scott Bryson)
