STEADYS, THE / GRANDMAS BOYFRIEND: Split: 7”

Hailing from Japan, The Steadys dish some snappy-ass power pop jams. So fresh and so clean. I mean really to the T, literally, like a squeaky clean Mr. T Experience. Slick stuff. Grandmas Boyfriend is a bit more rock’n’roll. Mix of lo-fi ‘60s pop, with tinges of Weezer in “Dirty Surfboard.” Reminds me of fellow San Franciscans Midnite Snaxxx, and new comers Dancer, but perhaps not quite as good. Not that it’s a dis or anything.
