New Talent: Miss Guy, Catholic Girls, Spastic Hearts

Miss Guy “Dumb Blonde”
One of the best remembered soundtracks was Hedwig and The Angry Inch, it sounds like we have life imitating art with Miss Guy. Former lead singer with punk band The Toilet Böys, Guy has created an EP than contains great riffs and catchy dance beats. “Magic” is a solid single about coming out transgender with an uplifting sing-along chorus. The title track is another gem. Give it a try.

Catholic Girls “Exposed”
An East Coast cult band founded in the 1980’s, they wore Catholic school uniforms on stage, and opened for The Kinks and Tom Petty. The sound is really close to Blondie, and lead singer Gail Petersen even sings like Debbie Harry in spots. The LP opens with the exhausting “Sleep” which is a good song, but at over 5 minutes drags out. In fact, many of the songs drag past the four minute mark. But gems are here, including the Cheap Trick like guitar on “Airplay.”

Spastic Hearts “Spastic Hearts”
Ohio band that sounds like a mix between The Ramones and Green Day through 11 fast paced tracks. The sound is great, a few standouts include “Rock N’ Roll,” “Kis You (On The Lips)” and “I Know.” That said, the album is pretty formulaic and could use a change in tempo a bit more often.
