“While the Ramones taught us all that we only need a few chords to make an endless number of perfect pop songs, most bands that have followed that model to the letter don’t have the ear for hooks, structure, or wordplay that their heroes did. Green does.” Pitchfork.
Here it comes! A new 6-song EP from LA's own Colleen Green. Referred to by Green as "Ramones-Core", this concise collection evokes the spirit of old-fashioned rock 'n' roll, applying a heavy layer of classic punk influence to the songwriter's well-known pop confections. Allow yourself to be taken back to a simpler time when the Brill Building bustled and teen punks hustled; when pop music was more about craft than commercialism. Green's penchant for parlaying inspiration into her own distinctive sound is well documented across her discography, but perhaps never as well as on this brand-new offering from Infinity Cat Records. If the Ramones are the teacher, then Colleen Green is the student and you are the classroom. Listen up!
Limited to 350 metallic gold cassettes, Colleen Green is out May 13th as part of the Infinity Cat Cassette Series.
