Album Review

Reviewed 2012-05-08
as reviewed by Mister Esquire.

girly garage pop/neo-gothy schlocky.
really solid garage girl group with gothic pretensions. elements of surf and rockabilly with a post punky touch. synth and organ sheen=awesome!
RIYL: the kills, those darlins, dum dum girls, the ettes, et al.
MR ESQ. SEZ: MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOW MEOV-(that's half a 'W'.)
PLAY THESE TRACKS: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7,10.

*1. sing songy piraty poppy, metallic crunch.
2. slow dance stripteasy=boring.
*3. begin is quiet. catchy anthemic, rocks like a metallic banshees.
*4. BEST TRACK: driving, bitchin' garage screamy rockabilly terror...meow.
*5. BEST TRACK II: surfy rockabilly, propulsapop.
'knocking on the wrong door -bang! I've done that... haven't we all?...well, haven't we?...
*6. breathy vocoder vox, sultry retro ala holly go lightly. rockin' beaut.
*7. most metallic of the bunch. fast and bitchin'!
8. cheesy poppy. josie cotton.
9. menacy git and synths. mid paced. metallic.
*10. slow and slinky organ driven (i'll take that striptease now.)
11. backwards loopy begin. stops abruptly (for too long), carries into upward momentum end.
(sousxie! is that you?am I spelling your name write?...)
