This album is sure to be a great summertime hit. The first song, “Golden Twin,” is catchy, and they maintain that interest pretty solidly throughout. I gotta say, though, it was lead singer Danielle Sullivan’s voice that really drew me in, sounding like a mix between Dolores O’Riordan and Neko Case. It’s her voice that makes this album really shine, although the synth-heavy instrumentation is pretty damn funky fresh. It’s what you would want to be playing if, for example, you’re going on a picnic with bunnies. –Brinley Froelich
