Those Darlins
$10

The three women and one gentleman that make up Those Darlins are responsible for some of the finest American music that is currently being performed. Their latest record, Screws Get Loose, boasts song after song of feverishly catchy garage pop, with hints of twang, country blues, and girl-group harmonies lurking at the edges. To a certain kind of listener, it'll sound like Best Coast without the vacant-headed California beach-bum vibe, transposed to the significantly more unforgiving hills of Tennessee (the Darlins' home state). To another kind of listener, Those Darlins will sound like a note-perfect resurrection of classic rhythm-and-blues and rockabilly, a reinvention of vintage rock and roll even as it sports the Darlins' bratty punk charm. The band is all these things and more, wielding a range and confidence that is frankly astonishing. Live, they're even better; this is a band you need to see. NED LANNAMANN
