The Stroppies: Levity (2022)
The new one leaves some of their earlier, shaggy lo-fi recordings aside with an ever-so-slightly more polished sound. Lead-off track "The Perfect Crime," with its odd vocal loop at the start, is particularly radio-friendly (at least in an alternate universe where cool music gets heard on the radio). The next tune (my personal fave), "Smilers Strange Politely," is a fizzy, scrappy delight more in line with their prior records, sounding like a great lost Flying Nun classic. A few other stand-outs land in that same zone, most notably "Material Condition," "Up To My Elbows," and "Figure Eights."
You can find it on Bandcamp.
