Hayley and the Crushers – Vintage Millennial [COLOR VINYL] – New LP
pure garage-pop fun, bopping along the main drag with the top down on Saturday night like Chuck Berry taught us, loads of different flavors packed into this pack of bubblegum but still focused like the suck of a paper straw going to town on a bottle of grape crush, probably going back to Suzi Soul and The Go-Go's for inspiration, going back to surf for the instrumental "Forever Grom," kicking out the guitar licks and singing her songs about love and lust and having fun, popping bubblegum and pushing you to the ground, looking over her store-bought white-framed sunglasses, zipping up the chrome on her second-hand go-go boots. Go-go girl go.-- winch
One part punk-pop, one part sunny surf, all "poolside glitter trash," San Luis Obispo, California's Hayley and the Crushers offer up a tsunami of bold, bad girl fun. Fizzy, frothy, and a little dangerous, be careful just how far you paddle out. There's blood in the water and the mermaids in this part of the Crusherverse are known to nibble.
