Primetime: S/T 7"
Absolutely BRILLIANT debut EP by this new all-lady band from London. Word is that this band originally formed out of a project called First Timers, which brings together people who have never played music before (or maybe are playing new instruments? Not sure what the actual rules are...) to create exciting new sounds. When I listen to these four tracks I can't help but think of the mighty Delta 5 as the singer has quite a similar voice, but if you want a more contemporary reference these gals have a similarly awesome combination of fuck you punk spirit and complete joy de vivre as Good Throb. I can see fans of the classic power-pop stylings of bands like the #1s also being into this, but the music is a lot simpler and more direct, with just a smidge of post-punk-iness. I just can't say enough good things about this record... it's one of things that just gives me a huge smile every time I put it on. Highly recommended.
