The Maynards
Date and Destroy
(indie)
Unlike the one-way street they’re named after, The Maynards fly in all sorts of directions. For a band known for playing brash, fun-loving rock ’n‘ roll, they choose to introduce their third full-length album with the surprisingly moody “Spinny.” It’s a flavour that comes again two songs later in the tough Sleater-Kinneyish---and very tasty---“Dance Fight ’83.” Elsewhere, there are plenty more odes to letting loose, as on “Do You Wanna Dance,” the wildly enjoyable “Art Attack” and “Mine Got Dirty.” Themes of romance, dancing, partying and being chummy, all thrown into The Maynards’ garage-rock mix, with boy-girl shout-a-longs. I’m swooning.
