After a string of low-fi pop singles last summer, indie-rock teen prodigy Bethany Cosentino — cat lover, foodie, Breeders fan — decided on a simple recipe for her debut LP with partner Bobb Bruno: Beatles-ish drums, Ramones-ish guitars, Phil Spector-ish vocals. The result: reverb-frosted tunes full of girl-group tunefulness and Nineties alt-rock snarl. It's catchy and pleasure-packed, even if the smartass, lovelorn lyrics never get much deeper than "Want to kill you but then I'd miss you." Modern but classic, it's a summer play-on-repeat record that even your grandma might dig.
