A charming little EP dropped into our inbox this week from Brooklyn’s Swimclub. Funhouse For Fiends contains five wonderfully constructed and gloriously delivered tracks that manages to act as something of pop musical history lesson. There are moments of 60’s charm-pop, swooning vocals and summery hand-claps throughout the record but it also has own share of bite. Opening track Never Tried sounds like Morrissey fronting The Shins, while She’s A Teaser wouldn’t feel out of place on any Phoenix record. With Spring finally here and the impending Summer months starting to dig their claws in you could do far worse than spend a little time Swimclub. Help yourself to an Mp3 of What You Want below and then head over to their Bandcamp page to grab the rest.
