Like a lollipop caught in a lint filter, Peach Kelli Pop nestles sticky sweetness beneath layers of cottony fuzz. The group, fronted and more or less embodied by White Wires’ Allie Hanlon, takes their name from a Redd Kross song, and in many ways, they’re that group’s cheaper, sunnier analog. Both bands have a fondness for immediately-memorable hooks and piles of guitar, but Peach Kelli Pop seems to be constantly operating in fast-forward. “Panchito Blues II” sounds like the Shangri-La’s trying to outrun The Monkees, and “Julie Oulie” is floor-filler at a jackrabbit sock hop. By the time your brain has caught up you’re ready to savor the sweetness, the next song is half over.
