MISS CHAIN & THE BROKEN HEELS: The Dawn: LP

Jul 26, 2013

Italy’s simultaneous answer to the burning uterine sensations of Muffs, the Bangles, the Like, and Shannon & The Clams ((and, less obviously, to male-tinged Americanoid outfits like the Midwest Beat or Gentleman Jesse)), the marinara sauce of my ardor for this band remains at a slow simmer instead of a bubble-popping percolation largely because they have yet to write that one real beret-flipper of a song that elevates the rest of their material by association. Lots of decent songs here, but no real prostate-milker; i feel kinda like i went to the county fair to see Katrina & The Waves and missed “Walking on Sunshine.” Pass the funnel cake. BEST SONG: “Little Boy.” BEST SONG TITLE: “Quack.” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: The crazy Europeans only capitalize the first word of their song titles, and are therefore out of compliance with the Razorcake style guidelines. Well i never!
