The Coathangers Scramble
- Words: Chris Sabbath
- Label: Suicide Squeeze
- XLR8R Rating: 8.5/10
This new full-length from the Atlanta-based girl group comes hot on the heels of their signing with Suicide Squeeze, and boy, is it a goodie. Sassy, breathless “oh-oh-ohs” and angular, fuzz-dipped guitars hash with jarring no-wavisms and jangly, K Records-style bedroom pop on songs like “Arthritis Sux” and “Stop Stomp Stompin.’” “It’s like you live in a jungle/But you ain’t no Tarzan/Your frame is so tiny/But you’re an elephant man,” whines a medley of spiteful vocals on the latter track, before diving into a foot-stomping chorus. If this batch of angst-driven tunes is any indication of what direction the foursome is heading, Vivian Girls had better watch out.
