Lovvers, 'Think' (Wichita)

Critical Mass

by David Bevan

Lovvers are four rapscallions your parents would totally hate. Specializing in no-fi haymakers, these Brits' debut EP is a flash of fly-unzipped pop that somehow crams more than 20 years of punk tricks into just 12 minutes of candied slop. Opener "Human Hair" is a delicious gut-shot of power-chord violence, while elsewhere, "Wasted Youth" boasts wheelie-popping guitar lines that actually have as much in common with the Replacements as they do the later melody-making of Jay Reatard and, gulp, blink-182.
