TSUNAMIS, THEE: Saturday Night Sweetheart: LP

Currently my favorite Indiana band, local to me here in Bloomington. If The Trashwomen were of today, they might be Thee Tsunamis. Girl group doo wop-esque vocals, plus drum pound, plus bass thud, plus fiery ‘60s riffage equals what you want to hear. Recorded to tape at Magnetic South (also of Bloomington) then rubbed in some of that Magnetic South secret sauce (see also: Apache Dropout, Vacation Club, Purple 7.) Include the following on your summer mixes: “Trash Talk,” “Dummy.” The Midwest continues to be alright!
