BABY SHAKES: “She’s a Star” b/w “Gimme Your Love”: 7” EP

Keep on walkin’ folks. Nothin’ new to see here. Baby Shakes offers up a mawkish EP featuring childlike vocals backed by cherubic “oohs” and “aahs,” tired ‘50s melodies, and trite lyrics. They’re like a really dumbed down version of Ex Hex, if Mary Timony tragically lost her moxie and all sense of dignity. Honestly, the best moment of this EP was the instant the last chord of the last song died. RIP.
