6
Too Young to Be in Love
Critical Mass
Release Date: March 29, 2011
Label: Hardly Art

by Barry Walters

Are you ready for girl-group anthems celebrating bad boys and bruised hearts sung by a righteously raw female garage band led by a male hairdresser with a more nasal voice than Joey Ramone? The first proper album from former Gravy Train!!!! member Hunx tempers the bubblegum punk of last year's Gay Singles collection in favor of beehive-pop send-ups: "He's Coming Back" is the Angels' bratty '63 classic "My Boyfriend's Back" with one extra penis. Slower tempos and fewer yuks mean less fun, but tougher backing vocals pump the essential estrogen.
