Twin Steps' debut EP, Serial Parade, is a quirky little thing. The Oakland trio cleverly melds surf and doo-wop with punk-rock clamor and additional noise, including field recordings and occasional samples. The hooks will suck you in; the weirdo bells and whistles will keep you around. It's a very un-nuggety batch of nuggets, too, especially the six-minute (eternal by garage-rock standards) first single "Pinkie Promise," which incorporates an Etta James sample into the lo-fi mix. It's what I imagine the house band at a sock hop in hell would sound like. It's absolutely fun and completely deranged—just like we thought Frank Black was at one time. MARK LORE
