Sticking To Your Teeth

Atlanta’s Gold-Bears are back with another 7-inch slab of pop. This time it’s a four song ep on Cloudberry.  Their pop still pops and comparisons to Boyracer, Wedding Present and bands that recorded in Mitch Easter’s Drive-In Studio still apply. Gold-bears have this knack for jamming their size 10 guitars  into a size five widget which gives them an endearing warped crunchy tone that jars and soothes at the same time.  So Natural is the best of the lot here with a good chorus and ringing guitar solo.  I also dig the slower meandering b-side Yeah, Tonight.  Look for their debut long player  Are You Falling In Love? due in May Slumberland.  In the meantime head on over to Clourdberry to get this.

    Is it just me, or do his vocals remind one of Pete Townshend? I love this!
