JB's Record Lounge

Oakland, CA mainstays Lunchbox are back with Pop and Circumstance, an explosive new album draws on influences from both sides of the Atlantic. Besides it's obvious debt to the hard end of the 1970s UK mod-revival and the jangle of 1980s British indiepop, the record proclaims Lunchbox's continued allegiance to the 1960s/70s Southern California pop sensibility and love for the classic AM radio pop single. Over the course of their almost thirty year career Lunchbox have always impressed with their ability to mine gold from the ore of pop history, and this terrific new record shows them at their best. From the bubblegum mod pop of "Dinner for Two" to the junkshop soul of "Love for Free," the Who-adjacent power pop of "Summer's Calling" to the horn-driven grooves of "Is this Real?," Pop and Circumstance transposes Lunchbox's unique blend of influences into a transcendent new key.
