HOORAY FOR EVERYTHING: Self-titled: CD

Oakland area three-piece that plays punky lady-fronted ‘90s-era alternative rock. Think a fairly polished Discount or the crunchy, peppy numbers by That Dog. The songs are fun and sweet without being saccharine. They don’t spoil after multiple listens, which is nice. Commendable work on this one.
