Lolls play youthful, spirited indie rock that combines a punk
spirit with a pop sensibility. Pop-punk, I suppose. This
here is their first seven-incher, and its got a very promising sound.
Side A boasts "Girlfriend," a two minute scorcher with a
simple revved-up guitar / bass / drums backing and a catchy vocal
chorus of "I'm in love with your girlfriend" that will stay
in your head for days. Aside from a brief harmonica bit, it's a
very conventional, standard tune.
Side B loosens things up with "When I Think of You," a
very infectious little rock number that downplays the punk
aspect. It's got a nice vocal/guitar solo trade-off and a bit of
a Pavement influence in the song structure and singing.
It is definitely the better of the two tracks.
Altogether, this is a spirited couple of tunes about love that will
please any discerning indie rock fan out there.
