NEINS, THE: Self-titled: 7″

The Ventures-styled Mosrite guitar that the Visible Woman is holding on the cover is a tip off here. Simple, good-timey, ‘50s-influenced garage rock with friendly guitars and perky organs and golldarnitall if it doesn’t make me want to play beach blanket bingo. This record’s not going to make me sell my Dick Dale and His Deltones records, but I like it. My only gripe is that, at two songs, it’s too short.
