This might be the tightest "indie garage pop-tending-rock" album I know of.
Arrangements are top notch.
Correcting a glaring omission in my collection here by buying the Beths albums while it's still _just_ NZ Music Month!
What an opening track!
Jump Rope Gazers and Don't Go Away - instrumentation is outstanding on both tracks - tough choice, any one makes for a worthy choice as fave track. theUtmost
Current me is slightly miffed at past me for having been so dismissive of the first Beths track I was introduced to: "Whatever"
I think it was being slammed everywhere - and my response to that track was in keeping with the title...
I shoulda given them a chance.
As someone keen on more than a couple of Flying Nun luminaries, I submit their work is so much better than that early radio single.
"You Wouldn't Like Me". Soo catchy.
Uptown Girl, is bangin', makes me wanna drink the whole town dry! theUtmost
So Kiwi it hurts. In a fantastic, life-affirming, charming, self-deprecating manner, replete with self-aware ironic smile tugging at the corner of the mouth.
I love the timing & key changes. Top notch indie jangly guitar-pop tending rock.
"I Want to Listen" , and "Change in the Weather" Liz channels Anna Burch and manages to upstage her.
I'm off to mix some drinks with my messages, then I might pin some hopes to the wrong pincushion! ❤ theUtmost
