Let’s take you back to the late ’70s/early 80s, where power pop and Trouser Press reign supreme. These were the original days of skinny jeans, of floppy haircuts, and of impossibly lo-fi guitar fuzz. There are the days before Wild Nothing and Beach Fossils would pick up their pedals, but these are the days that preceded them. No wonder their label, Captured Tracks, has a reissue label now, and most recently have signed Milk ‘N’ Cookies, the mid-70s bratty Long Island band. With songs like “Not Enough Girls In The World” and “Tinkertoy Tomorrow,” you know these gents don’t take themselves too seriously–and sometimes, that’s all you need.
