Sunny Sundae Smile Review

by Nitsuh Abebe

Sunny Sundae Smile continues in the same vein as The New Record By ... -- pop melodies revved up by sheets and sheets of Jesus and Mary Chain-style guitar noise. Somewhere in there, though, you can hear the beginnings of the lighter, more distinct sound that characterized Ecstasy and Strawberry Wine. None of the band's work before Isn't Anything and the EPs that accompanied it are "true" MBV, in the sense that we know them now, but they're fairly interesting on their own -- hardcore fans of the band who can locate this EP probably won't be too disappointed.
