Our friends at Soft Power have this kick ass cassette slated for release very shortly, and I would highly recommend picking this up. Dublin’s own September Girls is the label’s first all-girl group and they are a force to be reckoned with.
“Secret Lover”: A sweet, lo fi, garage pop song with even sweeter vocals. It’s like what you’d get if you put the Vaselines, Dum Dum Girls, Ladytron, Splendora and a few shots of sweet liquor in a blender and served it cold with a buzzing amp as a table, you’d have this track. The blending of styles is gentle and pure and the song draws me in completely. Maybe I’m a sucker for this kind of stuff deep down and just didn’t know it until now.
“Wanting More”: With some sweet guitar distortion and a classic 60s garage rock beat, this song blossoms to life. The melodic vocals are reminiscent of something days gone by, something sweet and catchy from another time. Despite this, the track remains fresh and modern; maybe in a way this is the birth of some sort of retrofuturistic post-garage genre being born here, or maybe this is just some wickedly sweet music. It’s like a ‘lost love’ song, but it is a subject that’ll remain timeless.
Should you buy this? If you’re into garage rock, lo fi, garage pop stuff, you’ll dig it. If you like the aforementioned bands that I described earlier, you’ll like this. If you’re into lo fi cassette releases, obviously, you’ll love this. I like it for all of those reasons.
