HAYLEY AND THE CRUSHERS: Gidget’s Revenge: CS

Slightly above average garage party people, with a great vocalist in Hayley Cain. They want you to dance and make out and I bet people are sucking face and moving when they play live. “Jaywalkin’” is a treat, partly for the details in the lyrics (getting ho-ho’s at the Circle K stuck out to me). Beach party/’60s throwback/luchador mask shtick doesn’t usually do anything for me, but the songs are strong. Stronger than shtick. –Matt Werts (Self-released, hayleyandthecrushers.bandcamp.com)
