When Tristen Gaspadarek belts "show me how your daddy and your mama made you" on the twangy rocker "Heart And Hope To Die," it takes a second for the come-on to register. Her addictive debut is full of such moments: catchy refrains with multiple meanings, ear-tugging melodies with hidden hooks. She flaunts a philosophy major's palette amidst echoes of vintage rockabilly and girl group pop: Gods battle, queens bid their rule, girlfriends enable druggy lovers. The romantic metaphor "Tadpole" pivots on the psychodramatic line "hate me oh boy." It suggests two things: dangerous girlfriend material, and an artist worth watching.
