A chip off the Reatard Family springs up their own little piece of the pie on everybody's favorite - Goner Records.

The Barbaras - Summertime Road 7" Well they might not quite have their leader's penchant for pop genius but Billie & Stephen of The Boston Chinks/ Jay Reatard's band still have a knack for melodic garage pop. The namesake of this here 7" is a burnt piece of garage fuzz that
loses the melody in the production just a bit, but underneath that nasty row of fuzz boxes and tape hiss lies a 50's soul ringer that's been given a bit of an updated tour of Memphis' new class. The nicest ditty on this platter is probably the clean cut slice of blue-eyed soul, "Flow," but if you give the rest a good scrubbin', the doo-wop vox and jangle beat are a winning combination that show some great promise. The band has an upcoming full album on In The Red (ITR's really bringing the heat this year) so be sure to watch for that.
