Adult Books

Adult Books are sorta one of the building blocks of the growing Lolipop Records empire and their punk-but-pop sound surely inspired a lot of littler Lolipops toward tape debuts of their own. Books have a sound that adds the Undertones’ committed hookiness to the Wipers’ relentless beat and ever-present anxiety, and if that sounds to you like it matches the high highs and low lows of this vomit comet we call life, you’re right. If the Feelies had grown up closer to Orange County than Orange, New Jersey, their Crazy Rhythms might have been a lot more like this: quick but never nasty and catchy but never cheesy, or in other words, honesty at velocity, which is about as good as it gets, isn’t it? Part of a very nice Lolipop residency this month—don’t suck by missing it!
