Go right ahead and add Philadelphia twee-punk trio Amanda X to the staggeringly large pile of rock bands making a name for themselves in the City of Brotherly Love. The group's debut album, Amnesia, is loaded with 11 tracks of well-crafted, K Records-indebted pop that's been amped up a notch. Songs like "Tunnels" and "Parsnip" have a sweet and playful side that remains firmly anchored by a fuzzed-out '90s guitar-rock leaning. Meanwhile, Hollywood, Florida's Beach Day formed out of a fondness for the girl-group sounds of the '60s. The trio's latest, last year's Trip Trap Attack, oozes with a summer fun vibe. Album cuts like "Seventeen" and "Walking on the Streets" are must-hears for anyone with a love for the Shangri-Las, and they make the ideal music to blast as we head into the waning days of river season.
