The Singles -- Look How Fast a Heart Can Break

Man, I wish I'd had the Singles around during my last breakup. Sure, there were a couple of weeks of emotional paralysis. But it didn't take long for me to look at myself moping and say "C'mon. She wasn't good for me and I have to get myself together. I'm being ridiculous...on the other hand, moping is pretty fun."

The Singles' jaunty garage rock embodies that ethos. From the aggressive one-two punch of "Inamorata"'s opening riff on to the final buzz of "I Don't Want to Fall In Love Again," Look How Fast is a fun ride through rock'n'roll history: with pop, punk, and blues in equal measure, there's a song for every occasion. The duet successfully straddles the line between being too earnest and being too cooly detached. I'm hoping I don't have to keep this album handy, but it'll be useful when it's needed.
