MS. 45: Pop!: 7″

This female-led band has a lot going for them. The first song, “Yadda Yadda Yadda,” sounds like the Ramones going power pop—if they were still in the garage. The second track, “Be Like You,” was more in the surf vein. Now a flip of the record. My favorite track of this release, “Easier,” was a more of a straight-up pop number: great melodies and vocal delivery. If they ever re-record it with better production and speed it up, it would be absolute perfection for me. The closer, “Spin,” came out with the most punk attitude. Good stuff. The record geek in me also enjoyed that it’s limited to two hundred and pressed on clear vinyl!
