But now we'll trigger a different emotional response -- happiness with a topping of gratitude. Why? Because four of those very same songs are now available via the Adams Apples 7". The release consists of "Adams Apples" and "Kids" on vinyl, with a download code for those songs plus "X + Y" and "Gentleman's Wash". The kind folks providing you with this rare second chance to do the right thing are Stewart Anderson and Jen Turrell of the appropriately-named Emotional Response Recordings. By the way, the song from the cassette omitted here is "Burn the Merchandise", which is on a compilation from Emotional Response Recordings that we'll discuss at a later date.
The songs deliver dream pop, garage and shoegaze with plenty of reverb, fuzz, energy and hooks. The production adopts a delightfully frayed take on Spector's wall of sound. It is all so good that if you sleep on it a second time you should sell all of your music and just watch reality TV.
The Debutantes are Paula Cullen (vocals/bass), Sarah Grimes (drums) and Leon Butler (vocals/guitar). Cullen also is in September Girls, and Grimes also is a member of September Girls and Cruising.
