San Francisco’s PAMELA keep building their “Pamela Is Hung Over” collection within their Bandcamp page, adding new songs to the point where I guess you’d reckon it’s really a proper EP now. That’s a good thing, too, since this corker is now something you can pay a few shekels for and actually download. The latest two tracks they’ve added are this one, “Coffin” – which to my ears has a 1974 FM rock vibe feathered into what’s otherwise a tuff, guitar-roar pop song – and “Tooth (Summer is Dead)”, which is an honest-to-god ballad of the Laurel Canyon ilk.
Absolutely one of the best of the new breed. Maybe when they get up to 12 songs they’ll cut the thing into a “compact disc” the way we used to do, hunh?
