Scooterbabe - The Sorrow You've Been Toting Around
Scrappy, jangling guitar pop just the way we like it. We're talking about Athens, Georgia's Scooterbabe, whose debut LP The Sorrow You've Been Toting Around is out now via Jigsaw Records and Perfect Attendance Records. There is a bit of early Shins and Death Cab for Cutie here -- you know, a bit of emo, a bit of jangle and fuzz, and a few more muscular performances that suggest that this band can rock like the '90s when they want, There is a good amount of variety in the melody and vocal approaches, and all eleven songs are very solid.
Try out a few of my favorite tracks below, or visit the Bandcamp link for a full stream. Like all Jigsaw releases, the price is attractive.
