Taking your lead from The Marine Girls, Weekend and Shop Assistants is never a bad move in my book.
That's exactly what New York trio Ribbon Stage do here. Switching from laidback to urgent and back again on eleven track debut album Hit With The Most, only a couple of tracks breaking the two minute barrier and then only just. Just as it should be.
Of course they know that this stuff goes back to NYC first of all. With The Girl Groups and The Ramones. A breath of fresh air. Yesterday, today.
