Panama - S/T
If you're looking for some fun indie-pop, Panama delivers.
Philadelphia's Panama remind me of a cross between the Pixies and Silver
Scooter. I've read reviews of this record that compare it to New Zealand
pop, but I'm not too familiar with that, so all I can offer are the above
Anyhow, Panama play energetic indie pop that is fun to bounce around
listening to. The album opens with 1060, presumably an ode to a Philly
radio station, as the chorus goes something like "all news, all the time."
The album continues in a lighthearted manner with Athletics, a song
lamenting Philadelphia's loss of the A's to Oakland.
Not all the songs are quite as good as these two songs that lead off the
album, but all of the songs have catchy parts that you can sing along to.
If you like indie pop, I can only say three words to you (and one of them
is an acronym) -- Buy this CD!
