SUGAR STEMS: Beat Beat Beat: 7”

I’m not sure what a sugar stem is, but it doesn’t matter. What matters is that this band is amazing! Super catchy power pop/pop punk. Two songs. Both so catchy, great vocals (vocal gender note: female! Yay!) Kinda Riff Randells-ish, and quite possibly better than the Riff Randells, which is quite the feat! Plus they’re from Milwaukee, my hometown. Plus, the cover art features teeth playing guitar and drums while holding a lollipop! If this were a cereal, it’d be Froot Loops! Yum! Yum! Yum! If this band released an LP, I can’t imagine it not being in my top ten of the year, unless NoBunny released ten LPs! If you like power pop and you don’t get this, you are dumb!
