KOOL STUFF KATIE: Self-titled: CD

A Portland two-piece mix equal parts power pop, new wave, and indie rock and come up with a batch of tunes that hint at all three without fully committing to any of ‘em. while the sound does suffer from the “two-member band” sonic void that too often makes such endeavors sound like demo recordings, the songs themselves are quite catchy and manage to sound familiar without coming off as straight-up bites off of other, better known songs.
