The Basic Bitches are a riot-grrrl/garage rock duo from Sullivan County, NY (and a couple of other places). Naomi sings and plays guitar, Krystal plays drums and does some vocals. They write songs with solid hooks and choruses you can shout along to. If you’re a fan of Sleater Kinney, Screaming Females, Ex Hex, The Gossip, Wimps, Jesus Lizard, The White Stripes, and Joan Jett, you’re going to like them, too. “For garage rock aficionados, there’s a lot here to enjoy from the get-go, but taking Krystal’s knack for sliding between snare and cymbals (especially during ‘…Lights’) and the shameless 60s flirtations throughout ‘Cat At The Party’ as the duo’s finest musical moments, it shows they’re a cut above just recycling old garage rock/riot grrrl/punk noises. Combining those musical skills with their ability to apply some very personal lyrical concerns, there’s little doubt that this is an absolutely brilliant release.” – Real Gone (indie/punk music blog)
