DOWNLOAD: Kids on a Crime Spree - Sweet Tooth (MP3)

Kids on a Crime Spree

"[NYC Popfest] also marks the NYC debut of Kids on a Crime Spree, the band from Mario Hernandez, formerly of Ciao Bella and From Bubblegum to Sky (who played Popfest in '08). Kids' debut album, We Love You So Bad, is out May 31 on Slumberland (a word I have typed more than "indiepop" in this post) and is up there with my favorite things Mario has done over the last 20 years. '60s melodies meet bubblegum vocals in a smoky haze of feedback, distortion and handclaps. It's real good. Check out "Sweet Tooth" at the top of this post." - Bill
Like Sea Lions (whose total NYC show count is up to 5), the Slumberland-signed California band Kids on a Crime Spree are coming to NYC for Popfest, but playing more than just one show.

Like Sea Lions, Kids on a Crime Spree are playing Death By Audio on Saturday, 5/21, with The Hairs who play with Kids on a Crime Spree again at the Popfest show happening Sunday, 5/22 at the Rock Shop (a show we're giving away tickets for). Kids on a Crime Spree were also supposed to play with the Hairs AGAIN on Monday at Cake Shop, but that is cancelled. There is also a possible 5/20 show at Shea Stadium, but the venue doesn't list it and the band said it's tentative.

Finally, like Sea Lions, Kids on a Crime Spree are playing San Francisco Popfest on May 28th.If you know of other shows, let me know in the comments.

Hey 11:48, you sit down by yourself and you have a critical listen to "Ain't No Mountain High Enough", and listen to the structure, the wordplay, the given and take of the two roles, not to mention the arrangement, and tell me that it's sappy black music. You still think so? You don't deserve to have a computer, or a radio.
