Drive On In: Luby Sparks “Pop. 1979”

Why not start the new week…the last full one of June, yikes!…with some driving indie-pop? Miles Apart Records has a knack for locating really talented groups creating fuzzy numbers featuring lots of distortion but sweetly sung hooks. Tokyo’s Luby Sparks are the latest to debut via the label, with the driving “Pop. 1979,” which features male and female voices hopping along in unison before hitting the sweet spot, that lovely chorus, so sunny you might miss that this whole song is a kiss-off rather than an embrace. This one isn’t about catching you off guard, but about capturing the DIY-spirit of this sort of sounds…and, well, deliver a real ear worm. Listen above.
