Fannypack: See You Next Tuesday [Tommy Boy, 2005]
The attitude is tougher and the material thinner, but you have to love it for not falling flat on its heightened expectations. Two albums in, these three young things still aren't rich--not with their "dresser drawer full of broken cellphones" and their homeboy who'll "rob Mickey D's for condiments"--and that still hasn't taken them down. With electroclash a dead delusion, what sells their handlers' beats is the girls' faith in the sacred mission of growing up and having fun at the same time, which in case you've been away is no gimme these days.
