The general word is that outta-nowhere indie It band Cults sound like a ‘60s girl group—and for once, the general word is correct. The half of the tracks that don’t sound like Shadow Morton or Phil Spector one-offs could fake it as singles on the famed Chattahoochee label, where producers Stan Ross and Kim Fowley delivered untold numbers of hopeful females their two minutes 30 seconds of B-side fame. So what’s that mean to you, hopeful listener? Glockenspiel hooks, “Give Him A Great Big Kiss” drums and vocals that shimmer somewhere between Lesley Gore and Mary Weiss from Madeline Follin. You best believe you’re in love—but spell it L-U-V.
