Soviettes music CDs New wave meets no wave on a Twin Cities bus, and the next stop is mid-'90s Kill Rock Stars-style slash and burn girl punk revivalism. They still make bands like this? From the start to its all-too-quick finish, the Soviettes' eponymous debut is a treble-kicking trip to the past in glorious fast-forward. Sturgeon (Maren Mocosko) , Annie Holoien, Susy Sharp, and Y chromosome ringer Danny Henry know it's all been done before -- the overdriven, two-minute songs, spazzy drum fills, and Raincoats-style girl group vocals. But their skinny fists are packed with melodies, their socks are striped, and every bassline is lovingly shellacked by slashing, barely tuned guitars that make everything sound like Sleater-Kinney covering Lush on a crappy AM radio station. Of course, there will be naysayers. The bandwagon scuttlebutt in their native Minneapolis has tended to focus more on the girls' ex-boyfriends' bands, and besides this full-length, there's only one measly 7" to ferret out. But doesn't half-assed exuberance count for anything anymore? It certainly did when Yo-Yo's Periscope compilation came out in 1998. The Soviettes is the spiritual cousin to that album's fabulous amateurism, and carries the torch for the "Hey! Let's start a band!" movement that spawned so many inspired combos during the 1990s indie rock boom. "Do you know why they hate us?" sing the Soviettes in "Clueless," a peppy punk-wave rocker that clocks in at a minute and a half. It might be the soundbite before "Land of the Clear Blue Radio" that indirectly proclaims them as the saviors of rock & roll. But then the neck-nodding song starts, complete with a four-four count-off, white noise guitars, and squealing vocals. It's hard to hate full-on when your feet are dancing so fast. ~ Johnny Loftus Debut full-length from female fronted, Minneapolis' based The Soviettes.

Soviettes discography The Soviettes aren't doing anything that different on their Fat Wreck debut than the irascible Minneapolis fuzz punks did on their two previous records for Adeline. But what the hell is wrong with that? III is another high-tension wire good time, a ballsy spitfire that rolls tall between Sex Pistols vocals, Pacific Northwest swagger, and the vestiges of early new wave, when the after-hours photographs were still in black and white. There are more melodies on III, from "­Paranoia Cha Cha Cha!" and the modified/accelerated Pat Benatar strut of "Middle of the Night" to "Roller Girls," the rowdy tribute to the Minnesota Roller Girls' roller derby league. And it's the Soviettes' best-performed record yet, with their four-way harmonies piling on top of one another in new and exciting ways. "[Do] the Stagger" is some kind of hyper party jam -- the herky-jerky guitar equivalent of a shotgunned can of Grain Belt beer -- and the couplets of "Hanging Up the Phone"'s chorus end with great "woah-oh-o"'s. The Soviettes are great at "woah-oh-o"'s. And they prove ...
