Mod-A-Day: The 75s

St. Louis has spawned a really good power pop, girly punk band in The 75s. Their songs are, short, strong and full of 1977ish buzzsawing guitars and crashing drums ala the Buzzcocks. At the same time you can't help but think of Dollymixture, Nikki Corvette, or even Sleater Kinney when you hear the female vocals. The song here, "This Is Goodbye", is a brand new one according to their myspace page, but be sure to tune in the others as well, especially "Finders Keepers". You won't be disappointed.
