Leave Me Alone

Spanish garage rockers have a summer-y guitar riot

"I’ll make it simple," the four women of Hinds sing on their debut LP. The music isn’t always so simple as they claim, though: This great garage-rock crew from Madrid folds decades of naïf-rock history into its craftily shambling tunes – from riff-scraping contemporaries like Ty Segall to early-1990s International Pop Underground stars like the Vaselines and Thee Headcoats, right on back to "Wild Thing." The lyrics offer their own spin on tough-talking rock & roll poetry: "I need you to be around my legs and stop complaining about the rain," they demand on "Bamboo," while the guitars bring the sunshine.
