Disciples of ’60s pop, razor’s edge punk, and summer rock anthems rejoice! Portland renegades the Suicide Notes are celebrating the release of their debut full-length Is That You? via Hovercraft Records. Since dropping their self-titled EP in 2012, they’ve subsisted on a steady diet of rollicking live engagements. Is That You? marks the culmination of nose-to-the-grindstone songwriting that exists at the crossroads of surf, first-wave rock ’n’ roll, and the melodic real estate of bands like the Bangles and even early Sleater-Kinney. “Mutha Fuckin’ Love” fizzles like a cracked egg on a hot sidewalk, with venomous harmonies spit by the Jessi Lixx/Double A vocal tandem. “Velvet Crime” finds legs in a bottom-heavy rhythmic drive that eventually explodes into an instantly classic chorus. With Mean Jeans and Sleeptalker rounding out the bill, expect your dance card to be completely filled tonight. RYAN J. PRADO
