Tony Molina - Dissed and Dismissed (2013)

Despite a less than 10 minute-long runtime, Tony Molina says Dissed and Dismissed is an album -- not a mini-album, nor an EP. This may be because the twelve fleeting power pop songs on here surely could represent a half-hour album's worth of ideas. Most of the songs feature the basic components of a pop song, but completely avoid repetition, leaving stripped-down but complete songs that, had they been elongated, could have sounded right at home on The Blue Album or Return of the Rentals.
