The May Bees – “Saint Denis” (2011, Wampus Multimedia)

The best thing which can be said about the May Bees’ “candy-apple thrash” on Saint-Denis is that the Dutch band’s music hearkens back to the mid-’80s garage aesthetic while maintaining a true sense of modern pop depth.

If you’re a fan of garage pop in the vein of R.E.M. or Guided By Voices, with pop hooks that occasionally merge into U2’s zone, you’ll find something interesting I’m sure within the confines of Saint Denis. The album’s something of a mixed bag, but there’s plenty of good music to go around here. Read the rest of the review at PopMatters.
