Superpower of Choice

by The Liberation Jumpsuit

The Liberation Jumpsuit was a funky power pop band that existed in the Blacksburg, VA area in the 2000s. Led by my college friend and radio co-host, Drew, TLJ released three albums including the one featured here, Superpower of Choice. When we began the podcast, I looked around for great music to use beyond the standard loops and bumpers, but couldn't find anything that fit the feel we wanted. I happened to have Superpower of Choice in my car CD player the day before recording episode 3 and it clicked. A few messages to Drew later, we had our backing music.

I spoke with Drew about giving the album a second life on the website here and he was excited for the chance to get it back out there again. On the show, we (currently) use four tracks:

Main Theme / First Bump: Superpower of Choice
Second Bump: Prototypical
Third Bump: Fat Kid
Spoiler Episodes: Rinse/Repeat

We hope you enjoy this little slice of funky fun!

The Liberation Jumpsuit was:
Drew: Vocals, dancing
Dan: Guitars
Sam: More Guitars
Jeff: Bass and production
Ryan: Many drums
