Dream Friends/Quaker Parents

Dream Girls/Tap Turns Off (Hot Money)


Quaker Parents return with more restless, shoestring pop; combining a plethora of clever quips, jittery guitars and stripped-down drums.“Teeshirts” is a standout with its anthemic, ’60s girl-group chorus. The flip side is a decidedly scrappier affair: Dream Friends muster up all their wide-eyed enthusiasm and earn their keep on their debut outing. As everything wanders into the red, these young turks churn out idiosyncratic pop songs about moms and smells and being lost in thought. On each side of this tape, there are great, shimmering moments created by making the most of something. Hot Money continues to bring the charm full-tilt.
