BE MY DOPPLEGANGER "Convertible Girls" 7in EP

"Regular guy" punk rock outta the Bluegrass state with their eyes on a hooky prize. Is that powerpop? Nah, These jakes are more about t-shirts and jeans so they don't dress the part. Pop-punk? It's a bit more gruff than what usually falls from that tree. The a-side, "Convertible Girls", an obvious paean to warm weather and chicks in cars is the winner on this hot pink single sounding something like the Leg Hounds getting drunk by breathing in the whiskey fumes that I've swore I saw rising off a Replacements record once but with a whole lot more bombast.
