PRETTY VOICES: American Curls: CD

Four piece from Tampa, Fla. that blends a bit of Lou Reed street smarts with Richard Hell’s vocal stylings. Garage rock but with a bit more polish than normal makes this an enjoyable listen. There are two songs here that are CAPITALIZED. Maybe they were hoping Rev. Nørb would get this to review. “Bulletproof Heart” features some New York Dolls swagger that turns this into a great song. Explore this and reap the rewards. –Sean Koepenick (Self-released, [email protected])
