Future Me Hates Me by The Beths

Carpark Records (Cloud Nothings, Toro Y Moi) present some fuzzy niceness from Kiwi quartet The Beths. Future Me Hates Me is a peppy synthesis of OG twee-grungers like The Lemonheads with the shy coyness found in the more recent fare of Yuck and Mitski. Nice harmonies, nice melodies, and the fact that the four members all have jazz chops ensures a higher level of musicianship that one usually finds on these sort of LPs.

7/10 Clinton 15 August 2018

More retro indie pop here from this Kiwi quartet who make a bright and bouncy and peppy form of college rock. They burst out of the traps with 'Great No One' which is as tightly wound coil of melodious punk pop with an infectious radio-friendly chorus that sticks in the ears long after the track has faded from view. 

The Beths straddle the edge of commerciality and with better production they could end up heading into Katy Perry pop excess or the mess Best Coast made of their last couple of albums. Thankfully they keep things raw and in the garage which allows for a spritzy high octane energy one part (yes, sorry) Green Day, one part Buzzcocks, bit of Lemonheads  and hints of Sleeper/Echobelly. 

They are at their best on rattling songs like 'Uptown Girl' which boasts and incredible driving chorus. The Beths are better seen as a short sharp punk rock shock than what they can deliver across a full LP.  At times it just all feels a bit like regulation emo-punk but the album has an infectious energy to it which in small bursts is an absolute cobweb killer.
