Those Darlins - 'Screws Get Loose'

Album Info

  • Release Date: February 13, 2012
  • Producer: Jeff Curtain
  • Label: Oh Wow Dang
  • Fact: Their old sound was apparently very 'hillbilly'
8 / 10 Being named Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast’s new favourite band – and not being a sack of kittens mewling the best of Dinosaur Jr – is no mean feat. Coming on like an unruly roller derby team popping open the beers after tearing some serious fishnet, Those Darlins make chugging, frugging lo-fi shots of on-point, ‘Nuggets’-flavoured garage pop clatter called things like ‘Fatty Needs A Fix’ and ‘Bumd’ while squawking lines like “[i]I just wanna be your brother/You just wanna stick it in[/i]” (‘Be Your Bro’). ‘Screws Get Loose’ is best listened to live in a mucky kitchen at your mate’s cool older sister’s amazing house party.
