Big Bill play danceable indie pop that hits a freaky, twitchy, surfy, sweet spot between Half Japanese, Devo, and They Might Be Giants. Basketball Shorts play shout-along power-pop-punk anthems and I got sick of rewinding “Genevieve” and found it online so I could OCD out. Each band do an EP’s worth of music. The emphasis here is fun, and I’m having it.
