Fairmount Girls Tender Trap 08/29/01

Sassy garagey girl rock/pretty pop. Trashy but also clean, well recorded but still a warm lo-fi garage tone. All girl vocs w/ harmonies, heavy guits, simple (nice) drums, requisite analog synth, even a trumpet and strings here and there, but overall guit/bass/drums feel. Rondelles, Breeders, Heavenly, Cakelike, all in a blender. All tracks excellent, clean. Something about girl drummers…

1) upbeat surfy beat, noisy dissonant guits, minor theme
2) upbeat 4/4 melodic vocs w/ epic breaks and nice beat you can dance to
3) bigger sound, slower w/ cleaner wah’ed bass and guits
4) lush and pretty pop, almost introspective sensitive feel, lots of fuzziness but tempered by melody, pretty vocs
5) mid-up 4/4 rock
6) mid almost slow feel w/ pretty Breeders feeling voc harmonies, strings
7) pretty lilting pop, 4/4 rock, noisy guits countered by super poppy vocs + harmonies and cute synth
8) upbeat pop gets heavy w/ guits, voc harmonies
9) acoustic guit + vocs, pretty ballad
10) straight-up driving power pop indie rock
11) slow to build, melodic and dense w/ guits, vocs, noise, etc., ends after 3 min, then 20 sec of silence then “hidden” track of comical lo-fi acoustic guit + guy vocs, like a demo or a scratch track
