This is the best record released in the US since The Strokes made their first album. You heard it right, and you heard it first here. The Bottom of a Rotten Flower is the best powerpop album, the best garage album and the best non-Flying Nun Flying Nun record in many years. If you liked Volume 4 then you will live and die by this album. Omg, almost every single song here will have you on your knees. “Female Behaviour Book” that segues into the heartbreaking “My Conscience Is Clean”. And let’s not even mention “Red-headed Girlfriend”. Just get it from Feel It and shut your mouth.
I’m not even gonna bother to pick a song for you listen to. Here’s the first single and it’s just as great as any other track on this LP.
