The memory of reckless youth prevents me from reaching for Sparks when I’m at the bodega, even though it still has a sweet 6 percent alcohol content. The saccharine jolts collected in Gemini Club’s “Here We Sit” EP give me pangs in the same places—especially single “By Surprise” which would have been a shoe-in for The O.C. Season 10. Yeah ‘it tastes different’, but the Chicagoans’ summer-kissed indie-electronica makes for innocent party fuel. “Show My Hands” stands out.
