Punk and rock n' roll reviews from Lord Rutledge and friends
Tuesday, January 10, 2017
I've got a short and sweet post for you today! Rinehearts hail from Perth, Australia and have a six-song debut EP out on No Front Teeth Records. This is something a little different for NFT: late '70s style power pop that worships at the altar of guitar jangle and ringing melodies. It goes without saying that I'm a big fan of the style, and Rinehearts sure do it well. Play "Try Your Luck" for just about anyone, and you could totally pass it off as some forgotten A-side from the heyday of The Records and Incredible Kidda Band! I feel like I should be playing this EP while I stand in front of the mirror and fix my skinny tie just right. There's quite a rich history of Aussie power pop, and Rinehearts seem poised to become part of it. Order the 7" from No Front Teeth!
