All Girl Summer Fun Band

2

K

If there’s a more aptly named band around than the All Girl Summer Fun Band, I’d be hard-pressed to name them. The band’s second sweet indie confection is exactly what you’d expect from their name: cute female harmonies over fun, summery indie pop melodies. Raw and lo-fi, their sound evokes bands like Dressy Bessy, with a similarly fuzzy guitar sound but sans DB’s more psychedelic-inspired elements.

The songs you’ll have stuck in your head include “Samantha Secret Agent,” “Dear Mr. & Mrs. Troublemaker,” “Down South, 10 Hours, I-5” and “Tour Heart Throb.” They score bonus points for the cool ’80s sequencer-style of “Video Game Heart.” The clincher? Any band that writes an ode to Jason Lee definitely has a lot going for it.

In short, 2 is the perfect soundtrack to all your summer fun plans. Just one listen, and you’ll be ready to hit the beach!

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
