Just last week I bought a filthy bit of garage pop from The Sweet Ones, but this new track from their album Big Mistakes, which is out now, shows a little bit of a softer side. Well, there’s definitely a bit of sloppiness, but it’s intentional; it gives the power-pop just enough to make you appreciate their grittiness. Surely you’ll find yourselves falling for this band as I have, at least I hope so.

Sometimes you find yourself in a little bit of a rut, at least in regards to your listening patterns. I guess lately I’ve felt like I need something to sort of kick out the jams a bit. Lucky for me I found this rocking record from The Sweet Ones in my inbox. Their record is titled Big Mistakes, and you can pick it up now. It’s a solid little rocking album, filled with sing-a-long barroom brawlers in the vein of garage rock, just a bit filthier. Cleaner production just gives way to the old fashioned good times, which is perfect for your Thursday.

As a younger music fan, I just needed fast guitars, maybe some shouting and a good melody. Nowadays, I find myself attached to all sorts of sounds (you can’t rule anything out these days), which is why I’ve been enjoying this track from The Sweet Ones. At first, it sorts of comes off like an oddball Modest Mouse, but the more I listen to it, the use of horns doesn’t seem like excess, so I tend to align these guys with more of a Rock Plaza Central feel–just with a bit more pop. Make no doubt about it though, it’s definitely quirky, in the most endearing way. You’ll find this track and others on the group’s new album Big Mistakes, which is in stores now.
