Tastes Like Summer CD

Shumai delivers a full plate of female fronted indie rock with occasional male backing vocals, jangly guitars, keyboards, and plenty of hooks. Never mind their love of bizarre song titles, because you will find the tracks are as catchy as their names are odd. This Boston based band features members from Prickly (Harriet Records), Love Child (Homestead Records), The Cignal and Dukakis. This full length is a combination of two EPs that were previously only available as CD-Rs("Combo with Five Delights" and "Leisure Champs"). Fans of Heavenly, Tiger Trap, Prickly, and early Velocity Girl dig right into this 90's style indipop feast. "And now time for some jingle-janglepop from Boston... Shumai is the name and they're making fine female fronted indiepop in where DIY meets the spirit of C86, all great and the sort of pop that was once made by bands like Tallulah Gosh (or now Tender Trap). It all sounds so innocent and the childlike approach makes swing your ass like it never did before..." The Original Sin
