Colleen Green takes old 60s girl group love songs and drops them in a sea of distortion and lo-fi. She's a one woman band, just her voice, her guitar and her drum machine. And the results are brilliant. This juxtaposition of sweet harmonies and tales of lost love combined with garage guitars is, in internet slang terms, a win not a fail. The fuzz adds a certain d.i.y charm to her undeniably poppy songs but despite the lo of the fi, you can still hear her sweet vocal delivery. Every song has a hook, a kick ass drum beat and lashing of loud guitar. There is no pointless experimental pieces or album interludes with Colleen Green. Simple, yet very effective!
