Dream Bitches:: Coke-and-Spiriters

NYC’s Dream Bitches second album Coke-and-Spiriters sees the ladies taking off with repetitive “do do do’s,” and a spirit that recalls at least a little riot grrls on opener “Bad Luck Bill.” While the album mellows out with calmer folk flavored melodies here and there, such as on “Bronxy Marie,” Dream Bitches excel when they turn up the guitars and add a little more intensity. Proof is in the raving mad harmonies on the chunky slag and slang of “Maniacal Mechanic,” and maybe even better captured by the twisting lines of standout “Mother’s Day,” which carries well to the end. Having said all that, the song I keep hitting repeat on is the cover of Belle & Sebastian’s “Me and the Major,” a fine job Dream Bitches style on a great song, making it their own for a little while. Overall, a good time with enough catchy tunes and versatility to keep the ear inclined.
