Tuneful pop-rock is what this five-piece band from Los Angeles peddles. They’ve opened for Weezer and the Strokes and drawn comparisons to the Beatles and the Cars. Admittedly, singer Robert Carmine has a strong voice suited to retro genres and eras. But aside from the catchy power-pop of “Blue Side,” there are no memorable songs on this slick debut album. Even “Blue Side” has an eight-bar section that bears an unfortunate resemblance to the Turtles’ mindless ‘60s hit “Happy Together.” Best avoided.
