Like Whales Swimming In Wine

Cassie Ramone (Vivian Girls) and Kevin Morby (Woods) join forces with Nathanael Stark and Justin Sullivan in The Babies, a new garage-pop duo based in Brooklyn, New York. The band released a couple of 7″ singles last year and are about to drop their debut album. ‘Wild I’ is the latest single to flood the airwaves with Cassie’s voice sounding gritty and pure, like raw sugar melting on a hot iron. The guitar playing sits somewhere between Sonic Youth and the laid back vibes of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti. Much like moments of Best Coast’s critically acclaimed debut Crazy For You, there’s the pain and the longing but it’s more smooth than fractured. The Babies are heading out on tour in the US later this month with another bright young star named White Fence. Check out The Babies’ myspace page to purchase their previous 7″ releases, and to keep up to date with the band’s tour, head over to Woodsist Records’ website.
