Best New Music: Bleeding Knees Club

Discovered this band today and am immediately obsessed. Bleeding Knees Club is an Aussie duo that play low-fi pop-punk of the skate trash variety–think if Wavves was Japanther’s little brother. It’s catchy and upbeat, but not “pop”; though the songs talk quite a bit about girlsgirlsgirls (song titles include the above “Teenage Girls”, plus “Beach SLuts” and “Girls Can Do Anything in Lipstick”), it isn’t angsty. It’s pure, unadulterated fun, fuzzed out and shaken down.

Plus, they remind me of the guys I grew up with in my surf/skate town and look really fun to hang out with. And are also super hot.

With warm weather here, I’ve been looking for something to go with my jean cut-offs and Vans. Their new album, Nothing To Do, is it.
