{     Giant Drag- Hearts and Unicorns     }    

giantdrag.jpg Giving this album a title like Hearts & Unicorns is a tad ironic given the fact that the album is not cute or cuddly in the least. This is the long awaited full-length debut from singer/songwriter Annie Hardy and drummer Micah Calabrese. The L.A. duo (unless you count Calabrese's left hand adding the bass lines from his Roland SH09 synthesizer as their third band member) is chalk full of distortion heavy guitar and heavy beats set to pop hooks. Fans will recognize that many of the tracks from their Lemona EP have returned as revamped versions. NME proclaimed Annie as "A woman who plays guitar like Kevin Shields and Kim Deal," while CMJ described their debut EP as "a shortlist of tastefully acerbic pop songs that evoke My Bloody Valentine's multi-layered guitar wash, Polly Jean's sinister lyrical streak and Hope Sandoval's Codeine-syrup vocals." I couldn't have put it better myself. With song titles like 'YFLMD' (an acronym for "you fuck like my dad") and 'My Dick Sux' you know you're not dealing with your everyday pop band. With their unique style this band should have no problem finding their place in the indie-rock world. - Written by Jay, read more of his reviews at Caffeine-Headache.net.
