Boomkat Product Review:
The Babies are a sort of Brooklyn supergroup comprised of Vivian Girls vocalist Cassie Ramone, Woods bassist Kevin Morby and Bossy drummer Justin Sullivan. I’m sure by now you know how this self titled debut will sound, and you probably won’t be wrong – there’s no disguising the fact that the record sounds quite a lot like a cross between Woods and Vivian Girls, but I’m not sure why that would ever be a bad thing. That patented Brooklyn ‘lo-fi but not TOO lo-fi’ sound is present throughout (whuddup to Real Estate y’all), but it’s the songs themselves that will have people talking about The Babies. Just skip directly over to ‘Breakin’ the Law’ and tell me this isn’t gonna become an anthem? It could almost be a tribute to the Clash’s ‘I Fought The Law’ reframed for the Williamsburg slacker generation, and in that pits the band as the anti-MGMT. We are presented with a collection of blissfully succinct two minute pop gems, and like last year’s Dum Dum Girls full-length and the omnipresent force of Best Coast it is sure to hoover up fans on this side of the Atlantic as well as t’other. Some day the Woods crew are gonna misfire, I’m sure of it – but not yet. The Babies get two thumbs up.
