DANCER: “I’m Not Giving Up” b/w “Teenage Punk”: 7”

One of the nuances of early glam is to go big. Dancer is a recent band hitting good water marks on the good parts of a sliver of a scene that spawned some great songs and some terrible trends. “I’m Not Giving Up” is a mid-tempo glam nodder that would be at home among the songs at Bingenheimer’s disco. It has the laid-back pace of a thoughtful T. Rex or Thin Lizzy track. “Teenage Punk” is more of the same with a little speed thrown in. Fans of early glam or Italy’s Giuda should take note. Great single. –Billups Allen (Dig, digrecords.bigcartel.com)
