There’s usually only so much of that jangly garage aesthetic I can take with my poppy punk, but Wet Nurse is totally nailing it. The whole album has this stripped-down but unfailingly energetic sound, something like what Songs For Moms or Jabber have been doing. It’s new and different from almost anything I’ve heard lately, but something about it feels like it’s from another time—a couple decades from now, I doubt anyone would be able to pin down exactly when this came out. I was hesitant to suggest that “Bon Voyage” and “Peace Treaty” kinda have this ‘60s-girl-group feeling, but then I got to “Randy Kelly,” and damn, no doubt about it. This band just sounds like they are cool as hell.
