RECORDETTES, THE: Self-titled: 7” EP

Kitschy kung-fu pop, heavy on the candy-colored polka dots and all-day suckers. “Candy Store” is the obvious signature tune here; probably not delightful enough to surpass “Candygirl” by Candygirl as the world’s foremost Candy Anthem, but more than delicious enough to make you forget if you ever knew what flavor the clear-colored Haribo® Gummi Bears are ((i’ll give you a hint: Rhymes with “pineapple”)). “Shower Request” is a kooky instrumental, and “John Waters, Can You Please Be My Father” probably kinda sounds just like you think it does. On to the malt shop! No simple carbohydrates are safe! BEST SONG: “Candy Store.” BEST SONG TITLE: “John Waters, Can You Please Be My Father?” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: Comes in a paper sleeve version with multicolored dots on a black background, and a plastic sleeve version, with bright blue dots on a clear background! No peanut, however.
