Stiff Pole Records, 2011
There are songs about boys and break ups and everything about Doll parts is catchy, pissed off fun that begs for repeated listening. “Met a Boy,” “Appleseed,” and “Truth be Told” are all stand out tracks, fueled by buzzy guitars tuned like an a thousand angry bees, and driven by a solid rhythm section that never holds back. On “Mascara Smears” the singers laments she’s “Just a girl/that’s in the way.” I don’t think she believes it and neither should you.
With twelve solid numbers that’ll make you want to jump up and down, this release comes with a digital download, but this is as good a reason to buy that turntable you’ve been eyeballin’ for the past two months.
