ZEBRASSIERES: Gooey Zoo: 12″

As happens on occasion, this review will seem somewhat biased because friends of mine are in this band… and I mastered the record… but I believe I can remain objective. My objectivity becomes even more suspect since this record is FUCKING AWESOME. Seriously, this is some incredibly catchy pop in the vein of Devo-meets-Ramones-meets a bunch of garage bands I’ve never heard. Insanely memorable keyboard lines and vocal melodies that invade your brain for weeks. This isn’t even really my type of thing, but it’s quite obviously a cut above most of the bands that’d have “organ-driven” or “keyboard-fuelled” in their write-ups. Beautiful layout, too. Definitely recommended.
