I've just fallen head over heels for stoner-pop. Who'd of thunk it...
March 19th sees Colleen Green release début record Sock It To Me on U.S. indie label Hardly Art (also home to Seattle indie popsters Seapony) and the ten-track introduction to the Oaklandian that "is long hair and getting high" is soaped up punk-pop at its best. Robotic handclaps, unwavering drum machines and pop hooks a-plenty, Sock It To Me is - to go all arty - pretty bloody brilliant.
"You don't have to make up your mind now" implores Green. Thirty seconds into fuzztastic single 'Time in the World' and I already have. Intoxicatingly addictive pop juice that I just can't get enough of.
