Dressy Bessy: S/T (2003)
It's still chirpy, sunshiny pop music, distinguished by Tammy Ealom's girlish vocals and the simplistic yet wickedly catchy fuzzed-out riffs, but swapping some of the early work's stripped down lo-fi sparsity for a bit more oomph, with no diminishment in pure fun. Opener "Just Once More" makes it clear that the band remains firmly committed to happy joyful pop music, with no shortage of hooks. My favorite here is the dynamite "This May Hurt (A Little)," three simple chords all it takes for a devastating look at a childhood friendship.
Perfect for cranking through open car windows on a sunny day.
