..............(still holding my breath)...............THE WHITE WIRES!
here you have it, the greatest release of 2010 (posted on the first day of 2011). The White Wires are from Ottawa. they have released some 7"s and a 12" on Going Gaga records. it was limited to 300 and now goes for big money. it was however re-issued on Douchemaster records, but even they have sold out of it. other distros still have it though for cheap. anyway, this is great all the way through. it's so catchy. a lot more drive then on their first LP. great gritty production on this one. this was released on Dirtnap records. 800 on black vinyl and 200 on white vinyl. i ordered the black vinyl because i like it better then coloured vinyl, but they sent me the white anyway. oh well. they are sold out of the white edition, and in quite a short time. no, i wasn't lazy and just used the download card's download. this is ripped straight from the vinyl. nothing else to say, this is essential.
1. let's go to the beach 5/5 (hooks, so catchy.)
2. roxanne 4.5/5 (just a bit weaker, but still great.)
3. did you forget my name 5/5 (vocals.)
4. i can tell 5/5 (i love the chorus.)
5. just wanna be with you 5/5 (chorus again.)
6. be true to your school ('til you get kicked out) 5/5 (nice.)
7. popularity 5/5 (great.)
8. hands 5/5 (such great vocals.)
9. are you mad 5/5 (fastest song, great drumming.)
10. outta my mind 5/5 (good.)
11. summer girl 5/5 (good too.)
12. bye bye baby 5/5 (nice instrumental song.)
overall: 10/10 strongly recommended
buy this from the Dirtnap link above. it is a must. happy new year by the way. my main watch for the new year is the Night Birds LP. and i was talking to Isaac of The Reactions and he said to me that they are going to re-issue their two 7"s, "Official Release" and "Love You." powerpop gems.
