Girlsville Thee Headcoatees
No soundtrack is more perfect for your 2010 summer than this classic rock from 1991. Songwriter Billy Childish’s bluesy punk rock pairs unbelievably well with the stripped-down vocals from the singer Holly Golightly. There’s not a bad track out of the twelve delightfully brief garage pop tunes. Start with “First Plane Home,” where the catchy group vocals and relentless guitar riff are through after just 99 seconds.
