Jilt the Jive, The Twistettes

This is easily the most listenable album I’ve heard all year. It’s everything you want out of a punk act; short, sharp, loud, aggressive, and most of all, fun. This record is fun. The kind of fun you get when you strip away wanky guitar solos and over-written lyrics, the kind of fun where you just turn the distortion up full and shout “Get te fuck!” to all the things you hate.

Being largely uneducated in Riot Grrl, there’s probably a lot of comparisons and influences that I’m missing when listening to The Twistettes’ debut effort, Jilt the Jive, but, you know what, I really don’t care. And I’m not sure they do either. I could namedrop a bunch of acts that they kind of remind me of for the sake of giving you an idea of their sound, but there’s really no need. If you like Punk, Garage Rock, Riot Grrl and, you know, fun, then buy the album. Seriously.
