The Girl That God Forgot
Suncatcher ~ The Girl That God Forgot
To paraphrase early-'70s one-hit wonder Albert Hammond, it never rains in Southern California...but pop bands sure seem to fall out of the sky there. Long Beach boys Suncatcher would not likely exist were it not for such fellow L.A. popsters as the legendary Byrds ("Eight Miles High" persona) and the semilegendary '80s paisley undergroundlings the Three O'Clock. On its major-label-distributed debut, the tuneful trio serves up a heaping platter of gloriously hook- laden and psychedelically charged rock. Finely crafted confections such as "The Puritan Song" and "Trouble" are sure to satisfy the aural sweet tooth of today's modern-rock aficionado, while the Velvet Underground/Modern Lovers-style drone of "Viva" will whet the appetite of those who enjoy more edgier fare. Recommended for those who've been charmed of late by the alt-pop du jour of Semisonic (Feeling Strangely Fine) and Fastball (All the Pain Money Can Buy). --Michael Evans
