TELEVISIONARIES, THE / FOX SISTERS, THE: Split: 7” single

Aug 19, 2016

This untitled split between The Televisionaries and The Fox Sisters (yet another band of all dudes appropriating femininity in some surely aesthetic-driven, perplexing choice) does that part Burger, part Big Bopper thing really well. I’m not sure if these dudes are trying to please their grandparents, get wedding gigs, or just have a good time doing stuff that has already been done. Their music is tight, the record design and layout is clean, and their songs are danceable, but I don’t know how many more rock’n’rolly garage singles with tired tropes like “pretty baby,” I can take. But people love this stuff, and these kids do a damn good job recreating that ‘50s magic people can’t seem to get enough of these days. –Candace Hansen (Reel Time, reeltimerecordss.bigcartel.com)
