Doll Skin – Manic Pixie Dream Girl
Here is another new band I can’t get enough of. This is the second album (first release with real distribution) from a young female power pop, rock, punk quartet. Each one of these girls kicks ass in their own way, the music is played more with aggression and emotion than super technical chops but that is what makes it great. I can’t imagine forming a band and hitting the road as a teenager, much less doing so as a female in such a “dude” oriented genre and business. Total props to them for being so cool and enjoyable in what can sometimes be a very un-fun current musical climate.
