A simplistic, punky structure, heavy rock riffs, a growled drawl of a vocal, plenty of yeah yeahs, the odd guitar solo, a sample thrown in for good measure… and you have the Kitty Hudson's 'Speedophile' EP. It's a record brimming with rock clichés, pulling it off simply by so being utterly in love with the sound and lacking the oh-so-ironic hyper-self awareness which plagues far too many bands. It’s the kind of record that makes you grin just by being so utterly forthright about itself, fun because it’s full of contagious joy and enthusiasm rather than it’s Just Silly. It’s satisfyingly loud and it thoroughly rocks, and while there’s no new ground broken here it does what it does well and produces the kind of songs you’d hit the dance floor to, because it’s full of energy and it feels like a good time soundtrack.
And 'Relationshipwreck' has to be among the best break-up song titles ever.
