A gem from our Burger Records friends. This song is basically Weezer’s “El Scorcho” internalized and completely scrubbed of its insecurity. The melody sproings like a rusty bedspring just like that song, but the message here is “I know that I’ll be good for you.” This song gives joy the way only garage-pop knows how give it — outrageous, harmless, catchy, ingratiating, maybe-joking. Even the guitar solo feels like its giggling.
