Warm Soda w/ Ben Spinks Supermelt, Study HallPop/Rock
The video for Warm Soda’s new single “Busy Lizzy,” shot on a borrowed VHS camera, features a librarian-chic bombshell in knee socks and glasses who turns heads and inadvertently creates chaos as she struts through town. It’s a good indication of the band’s aesthetic: at once retro, gritty and wittily concise. The Oakland quartet is a new project for Matthew Melton, a talented songwriter who composed a wealth of power-pop gems in the recently defunct Bare Wires. Soda LP Someone for You is a collection of tense, urgent, glam-inflected power pop. It’s noisy garage rock, but it’s never sloppy — instead, it contains a certain Strokesian slickness. Fans of Cheap Time, Cheap Trick, T. Rex and The Kinks won’t want to miss them.
