TRUCKS, THE: Self-titled: CD

Jan 18, 2007

I want to like this. Mostly because the girls in the band are all foxy. And the songs have lines like, “I turn into a bitch/ When I’m hungry,” and, “You can’t hate a girl/ Who looks good dancing,” that I can really relate to. But the electronic music on this album really makes it something that I just can’t truly love. This is in the same vein as Peaches, Chicks On Speed, and Le Tigre. Stuff I can totally appreciate, but will never really get into. One or two songs, like the poppy “Old Bikes” and the more complex “Zombie” make me think this album has the potential to grow on me. Though realistically, I will probably bring it to a party some night and leave it as a hostess gift.
