Bubblegum Lemonade – Ten Years Younger EP

More great pop from Scotland in the form of Bubblegum Lemonade. The title track has the lovely shambling fuzziness that lies somewhere between the Mary Chain and the Velvets. The sort of song that’s just there, yet somehow imposes itself on your consciousness, a nagging little earworm in the best possible sense. The Tomorrow People is a little lighter, a wonderfully crafted pop tune that reminds you of the more twee end of the C86 era. Unsafe At Any Speed is a fuzzy little thing, arriving in the Mary Chain time line somewhere between early feedback days and the rocked out era. The cover of That Thing You Do! is rendered in similar fashion, which sounds pretty cool, but not as good as the sixties pop pastiche of the original.
