EARTH GIRLS: Wanderlust: LP

Some interesting contradictions here—pop steeped in echoes of the ‘60s but with a revving engine under the hood that would wind up a pit quite nicely; sweet, almost dreamy vocals over rough ‘n’ tumble garage punk that easily could’ve been lifted off of some obscure Marked Men record. Muffs meet 10,000 Maniacs on a meth bender, maybe? All that matters is that it’s awesome and I can’t stop listening. –Jimmy Alvarado (Grave Mistake)
