STOLEN HEARTS: Heart Collector: 7”

Nov 24, 2009

I am always excited to check out a new Douchemaster release! This is a label that always seems to pick the best stuff to release, particularly in the overdone and half-assed realm of power pop. This is one of my all time favorite styles of music, but I have been burnt out on it for several years, so it takes a lot to perk up my ears at this point. The Stolen Hearts are fantastic—great songs, great production, and excellent vocals. Focusing on songwriting rather than sounding “vintage” or wearing the right clothes is key, and this band comes through in spades. Reminds me a little of Manda & the Marbles, which is always a good thing. Order this immediately and be sure and pick up that killer Perfect Fits single from Douchemaster while you are at it.
