Flop & The Fall Of The Mopsqueezer, the first full-length by the Seattle band Flop, has been out for about 14 years, but it’s packed with timeless hooks. Flop, which grew out of the power-pop outfit Pure Joy, put out three full-lengths of sweet, crunchy pop nuggets before disbanding in the mid-’90s. The six-minute jam sandwich “Morton the Venerologist” and the minute-and-change “Circus Freak” close out the record, and it’s a one-two punch that makes us hit the repeat button again and again.
