With songs titled after The Wonder Years episodes and a first place finish in Mary-Kate & Ashley's online battle of the bands, one might claim Montreal's Bad Flirt for the (nostalgic) tween-set. While their Bangles-meets-Metric sound could give you an aspartame headache, an energetic vibrancy shines through angular guitar lines and flippant boy-girl harmonies on the full-length Virgin Talk. Plus, they love the Circle Jerks! With Hollerado and Ferraby Lionheart.
