Editorial Reviews

Twelve inch vinyl pressing. 2011 debut EP release from this band featuring former members of From Bubblegum to Sky. About a decade ago, Californian Mario Hernandez was sitting on a Stockholm couch, casually drinking a really good cup of coffee when a friend put on the Back to Mono box set and Hernandez's life was forever changed. He was instantly drawn in by the excellent songwriting and lush instrumental arrangements; and what started out as an innocent side trip into the Phil Spector back catalog soon became a longtime fascination with the Brill Building and Spector's fabled wall of sound. As time passed, he kept coming back to the idea of a simple pop song that wasn't really that simple-a happy melody with a dark underpinning in the lyrics-and he knew that it wasn't enough to just listen. He had to make his own version of this great stuff. Kids on a Crime Spree is the result of this obsession.

4.0 out of 5 stars 60's-style energetic fuzz rock January 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD
(Taken from my blog at [...])

This was definitely an unexpected surprise this year. The story goes that the main songwriter in this group listened to the famous box set of Phil Spector's work titled "Back to Mono" and then went on to write the handful of songs on this album. And as a fan of that box set of 50's/60's music, this immediately appealed to my tastes.

Not only did I get hit with the unfettered joy of that era, I also got the scuzzy fuzz rock that defined the latter period of the 1960's. It's a warm sound, unabashedly happy in tone, as willing to please as the nerd on his first date with a new lady friend. It's fast and over before you know it and accomplishes one of the best things an EP can aim for: it leaves you wanting more.

5.0 out of 5 stars too short but oh so sickly sweet...... December 24, 2012
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
if i had to choose one or two albums that epitomises the current slumberland sound, 'we love you so bad' by kids on a crime spree would definitely be one of them. back and forth, screech/sing harmonies, songs as long as yr pinkie, and a general vibe that simply invites you in and refuses to let go with each repeated listen. while the future of the band still remains uncertain, they're still on slr's roster so here's hoping that 2013 will still see the kids doing what they do so so well: short, sticky, foolish, rapid-fire, noise-pop gems.
