Sauna Youth: False Jesii Pt. 2 b/w Oh Joel 7"
Latest single from this English band, and its quite different than any of their previous material. Their early stuff seemed, to me at least, to be pretty heavily indebted to the S***ty Limits, but this is just straight up, harmony-drenched DIY indie-pop. C86 references are obligatory, and dare I say warranted. The a-side is actually a Pissed Jeans cover (completely re-imagined, naturally), while the flip side is a similarly fetching original. Static Shock Records never steers us wrong, and if you dig the sound of bands like the Shop Assistants you'll flip out for this... great record. Static Shock Records
