Eric from Make a Mess / Nodzzz emailed about this latest single from the Woods/Vivian Girls side project The Babies. I already missed out on the 'All things come to pass' single on the girls own Wild World Records which I just realized today, so I jumped on this one.
The track on their myspace 'Meet me in the city' has those far off layered reverb backup vocals from Cassie, with the laid back strum rock of Real Estate with straight ahead punchy country vocals. It's a little dose of summertime while the mean memories of winter are fading away. A catchy effortless combination that keeps popping up in your head full of jangly fuzz. Everyone joins in for the chorus 'hey won't you meet me downtown!', and it's a perfect mix follow up to Nodzzz's 'In the City'.... once you get there.
They have some dates coming up in Brooklyn which will be worth catching.... I don't know how they find the time.
Get it direct from Make a Mess.
"Meet Me In The City b/w Somebody Else" is the debut 7" from a new NYC combo, The Babies. The 7" record will be, quite appropriately, the seventh release for San Francisco imprint Make A Mess Records.
'Meet Me In The City' and 'Somebody Else' are rollicking pop gems, pungent with sweet harmonies, raucous beats, tambourines, skyscraping guitars, the works. Summer dreams, psychic revelry, concrete heat, Babies are born!
The individual Babies are no strangers to melodic transcendance, as their work in such groups as psych-pop wonderkinds Woods and chainsaw sirens Vivian Girls will attest to. Anybody with an ear for indie pop mayhem had best put their spending shoes on pronto, as these Babies are star children of an entirely different breed!
