Singer/songwriter and frontman of New York power-poppers EZTV, Ezra Tenenbaum, joins me to dive into a cult classic of the power-pop genre, the self-titled debut from The Toms (1979).
We talk about the shared influences of British invasion and 60s west coast rock on both Ezra and the Toms, the discipline of short songs, ‘bands’ made up of one person, the benefits and temptations of tinkering in the studio, how albums can capture a moment of someone’s life, and when we can expect a new EZTV album.
