WEEKENDERS: Any Place Else b/w Sidewalks & You’re So: 7"

Jun 22, 2007

Uh... Rule #1 for Pop Success: A seven-inch record is meant to be spun at 45 rpm. ONLY. Rule #2 (“Be Cute Chicks”) has been fully complied with, however. Anyway, this NYC all-girl threesome appears to be going more in the direction of straighter girl-pop bands like the Excessories and/or a less punked-up Eyeliners than the whole trash ‘n’ treacle route of Nikki & The Corvettes and/or Tina & The Total Babes, but, from what i can tell, their current aptitude and skill sets are such that, at present, they would probably be more successful singing songs about Pop Rocks™ and Jolly Ranchers® than they would on their present course. This, of course, is subject to change, and the fact that the record’s most intriguing track is the Exploding Hearts-ish “Sidewalks” means that people like me should just sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up and let ‘em rock. So shall i do. BEST SONG: “Sidewalks” BEST SONG TITLE: “You’re So” FANTASTIC AMAZING TRIVIA FACT: I got #163 of 500. 163 is a prime number, you know. Also, i met Mitro.
