This band reminds me of a bunch of bands I loved in the 1990s, who were able to combine a classic rock and garage punk sound with that “alternative music” feel that ran through so many killer albums of that era. They recall L7, PJ Harvey, 4 Non Blondes, Ethyl Meatplow–the smarter grrrl bands who themselves were influenced by archetypes like Patty Smith and The Pretenders.
Yeah, I’m comparing Arcadian Playground to a lot of great bands. With good reason.
This record kicks ass.
