Those Darlins “Screws Get Loose”

A little bit Fastbacks, a little bit Fitz and the Tantrums, with some Aislers Set thrown in (I think of some old Shonen Knife here), Those Darlins aren’t just a band with a strip club name. On the title track they establish quickly that they will do whatever the fuck they want, and your options are to listen or jump in a lake.
“Mystic Mind” borders on twee and also has some psychedelic stuff going on. This was the direction Hope Sandoval could have gone in but didn’t. “Waste Away” is good for Holly Golightly fans. All in all, this is fun stuff for fans of the genre.
