The Joliettes - Girls Like Me

The Joliettes debut 45 Girls Like Me has the sass of the Shangri-Las and the pop sensibilities of The Flips delivered straight up with Eux Autres-style garage guitars and infectious backing vocals.

It combines 60s girl group insecurity ("Girls like me will give up themselves for a little smile/Girls like me believe it'll be different this time") with a sharp punky twist that makes you think that maybe they're making a sweetly venomous attack on some other girls. Either way, this is a fantastic record.

Going Gaga Records - home to White Wires and Peach Kelli Pop - have released this in their continuing project showing Canada's essential undergound sounds. If you can bear myspace, head this way for a listen.
