She’s Just a Buzz

Pop Sweatshop
Magstatic = Failure + Sugar + Pinback

Plump, solid pop-hooks are as satisfying to the palatte as malt balls; sometimes energetically upbeat (“Downtown Girlfriend,” “My Little Runaway”), sometimes smoldering crystal-cool (“Run to You,” “Bitchin’ House”). It’s all radio-friendly and better than anything playing on the radio, if you know what I mean. Late 90s big rock sounds intermix with a modern indie sheen and big modern rock sounds like Phantom Planet and BRMC, epecially on “Skip 5.” One of the best local releases of the year.
