The 1990s


Before I even get to this band, realize that there is another band that might confuse things. Here, I'm lauding The 1990s, not the 1900s. The 1900s are from Chicago, the 1990s are from Glasgow (so obviously, they are better).

Now, I won't say this band is going to change the world or even change your life. But honestly, like many of the bands I dig, the thing they do best, is be British (Scottish to be exact). What's particularly good about that in The 1990s case, is that they run the gamut of UK genres and eras and still kinda nail them all. It's a fun record with highly enjoyable moments, and had this band come out in the 1990s, they would have been total mixtape staples in my book. They can pull off Blur, T. Rex, the Dandy Warhols, latter day Suede and even a dash of The Strokes. Pretty nice mixture.

What I particularly like about their new record, Kicks are the glam moments. I would love it if there were some glam revival and everyone starting churning out T Rex stomp-alongs.
