TIFFS, THE: Self-titled: 7” EP

Every once in a while, when you get records to review, you get a gem. A real treasure that keeps you focused on why reviewing records is fun. The Tiffs is a Japanese band and includes members of Blotto and Her Spectacles and this is their first EP. My second favorite track is on side B and is titled “Lost in the Super Drinking Life.” As if the title wasn’t super sweet in itself, the song truly brings to the table, in all its Japanese glory, some really kickass lyrics and tunes to boot. My most favorite is called, “Goodbye, Blue Monday!” which is on Side A and to truly appreciate it, you have to read the lyrics… pure poetry. All four songs on this record are tight. Just like most of my favorite Japanese bands, the bass sounds so good! I really enjoyed this record.
