Frausdots Couture, Couture, Couture
- Words: Selena Hsu
- Label: SubPop
Draw that eyeliner on good and thick, kids-Frausdots' debut wails with a sexy, kohl-rimmed confidence. Couture surges open right away into grandiose Echo and the Bunnymen lushness with "Dead Wrong," just begging for a sing-along. Frausdots hits it right with midtempo numbers like "Current Bedding," filled to bursting with a dreamy guitar line, and "Fashion Death Trends," which is so damn catchy, especially when Brent Rademaker pulls out his snarky falsetto over a kicking beat and coos, "Looks soooo cute on you!" Bitchy, pouty and yet darkly sweet, Couture'll rot your teeth like c-c-c-cola.
