Argentinian group Las Kellies return with their fizzy post-punk and new wave designed to get the party absolutely started. Lauren Laverne loves them (Las Kellies not tangerines - though maybe she likes both - who wouldn't?) and maybe you should too. There's just the two of them but they make a nice big danceable racket.

Oh, thank goodness for that! The trio -- wait, I mean duo, as one of them has left the group -- of Kelly sisters from Argentina are back! B-A-C-K !! Here to inject some fun back into this po-faced world of post-punk. The round dozen of tunes on this new album ‘Suck This Tangerine’ finds Ceci and Sil Kelly in bouncier, more dance floor ready form than ever. Their way with a sweetly coo-ed vocal harmony or three, sprightly bassline and compact, jagged guitar spikes is an invigoratingly winning formula here.
There are some hugely, delightfully danceable tunes here too: the Tom Tom Club meets Bananarama stormer “He’s Who’s”; they’re lighter, and lither, than The Gossip on “Baby” and much, much more Pop (and far less serious) than Gang of Four on “Despite”. Despite some guitar chops straight outta the Andy Gill playbook. And that’s just the beginning...
A great, v-sign flicking, defiant party in the face of the ongoing storm. Fuzzy, funky and apocalyptic disco for dancing around the world’s living rooms to. This 'Tangerine' doesn’t suck, and it’s full of vitamin C so it’s very good for you indeed. Recommendation: take daily.
