On its third release ("The Late Night Plays"), this Atlanta act's combination of punk anger and energy, quirky pop structures and confessional lyricism owes just as much to Patti Smith as Belly. Rockers like "Deadfall" and "Allegheny" are just as sleazy and energetic as Iggy & the Stooges or the New York Dolls, while front-woman Elizabeth Elkins goes from breathy, PJ Harvey-esque vocals to growling and raspy screams more reminiscent of Babes in Toyland or L7. Even on poppier, more melodic tracks like the tongue-in-cheeky "Monopoly" and "Professional Sweetheart," the band takes a softer musical approach while remaining lyrically emotional and biting. - Jonathan Williams, Prick Magazine
