“Mexico In December” is built on a really solid 50s pop drum beat and vocal arrangement. This song could stand up to anything else in anyone’s pop catalog of rock songs.
Young Girls have been getting great reviews lately, and they’re one of the few bands worth the buzz. I’ve read people calling them “indie-pop”, “retro pop-punk”, better than “average indie bands”, and “Polaroid-quality garage pop.” I’m glad nobody shrank to simply calling this an “indie band”. They deserve further elaboration. This is a 50s tinged rock band with modern party dynamics.
They were on Chaotisch Und Charmant’s list of the top 50 albums of 2011, they were recommended on kut.org., and they are playing at Cheer Up Charlie’s in Austin tonight for New Year’s Eve. The Zoltars are also playing that show, and I definitely wouldn’t miss it if I were in the area. This part of the country is unbelievable.
