Papas Fritas Discography of CDs


Pop Has Freed Us Pop Has Freed Us CD (2003)
CD $12.65 Buy It  Details CD & DVD
Papas Fritas music CDs Papas Fritas' brand of pop is charming, innocent, and drawn from classic sources as diverse as the Beach Boys, '70s AM radio, Fleetwood Mac, and classic U.S. indie pop. Well, maybe those aren't the most diverse sources, but the group takes them and creates a varied and invigorating sound. Tony Goddess and Shivika Asthana's open-hearted, artless vocals can't help but charm all but the most hard-hearted listeners, and the band's playing is always energetic and full of imagination. Pop Has Freed Us is a career summation that includes eight songs from their three LPs and one EP, as well as nine songs previously not found on any album. There are three tracks from 2000's excellent Buildings and Ground, two each from 1997's Helioself and 1995's Papas Fritas, and the title track from 1996's Passion Play EP. If you program the disc to play just the tracks taken from their records, you might just be stunned at what a consistently wonderful pop group the Fritas are; in fact, the best of these tracks compare well to any band from the '90s or 2000s that had the nerve to play simple pop music. "Passion Play" is a miniature epic brimming with passion ...

Papas Fritas songs 1997's HELIOSELF is Papas Fritas' second album. Since recording its debut, the trio had relocated to the North Shore of Boston and set up a rehearsal and recording space in an old schoolhouse. Again, Papas Fritas self-recorded the music and took the resulting tracks into a full-service studio for mixing and sweetening. The results are more expansive than the band's audacious debut album, due in equal part to this new setup and to the experience gained in the interim. Papas Fritas understands and loves pop music. From the dreamy and propulsive "Say Goodbye" to the shameless bubble-gum of "Sing About Me," these songs are fun, inventive, and ...

Papas Fritas CD discography This EP presents the title song, featured on their self-titled debut album, and three additional, and otherwise unavailable, tracks. This Boston-area trio loves lush orchestral pop as much as they like the looser-limbed approach of, say, Jonathan Richman, and the results are charming home recording at its best. The instincts of leader Tony Goddess are good and sound--he captures an immediacy by recording in their practice space, then takes the results into a proper studio for mixing and sweetening. The three additional songs are presented in the raw, just as the band created them in the rehearsal room. While these tracks lack the polish of "Passion ...

Papas Fritas albums BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS is an album full of fun-loving mega-pop from everyone's favorite fun-loving mega-nerds. This ear candy is so rich and satisfying it'll send you scrambling for a syringe full of insulin. "People Say," for instance, is a slice of pure Lindsey Buckingham that's as catchy and dreamy as anything Fleetwood Mac has ever recorded. One of the most arresting aspects of this band is Shivika Asthana's singing, which is undercut by Goddess' endearingly nerdy rasp. If you haven't been converted by Papas Fritas, BUILDINGS AND GROUNDS is likely to do it. Pop has freed them and it'll free you. Recorded at The Columnated Ruins, Gloucester ...
