HOT TODDIES “Get Your Heart On” Review @ Pop Matters ?

Since Best Coast is shaping up to be the Animal Collective of 2010, expect more attention for bands that bring that brand of beach blanket beat. Oakland’s Hot Toddies are four California Gurls tough enough to be on Asian Man Records, but with no compunction about rhyming “Seattle” with “skedaddle” (as they did on their 2007 debut, Smell the Mitten). Fans of Asian Man alumni Alkaline Trio will appreciate Get Your Heart On‘s nod on “Matt Skiba Sandwich”, and the gluten-intolerant should enjoy “Celiac Love Song”. The sweet sing-alongs, with delightfully rudimentary arrangements and lyrics about boys n’ beers, have an endearing “Hey kids, let’s put on a show!” kind of quality. It’s as if Darla and the other girls on The Little Rascals grew up, moved to Malibu and developed an enthusiastic taste for guitars and Guinness. Thank goodness for global warming, because now you’ve got the perfect delayed-summer jams.

Shores – Coup De Grace – LP
Shores – Coup De Grace – LP

Screen-printed cover, coloured vinyl

The roots of Michigan’s SHORES tap the wellspring of RED HOUSE PAINTERS, BEDHEAD, THE NEW YEAR, CODEINE, LOW, SPAIN, SEAM, and SLOWDIVE. The first haunting note of “Coup de Grace” rings out, clear and clean, followed in time by another drenched in natural reverb, the living sound of a dark, wooden room. Not a cathedral, not a church, but a place of warmth and comfort nonetheless. The patient crescendo builds, the percussion kicks in, rocketing the dynamics into full play. Clean guitars, loud drums, clear vocals. Purposeful over casual, downbeat yet forward moving. Dark, not depressing. A rainy day, a late night adventure. —Var.
