The Mint Chicks are almost a throwback Green Day pop-punk outfit but they incorporate the last couple years of other throwback bands’ greatest throwback-nuggets: a little glistening dance-punk here, a little raspy post-punk there… They seem to do it with an appropriate measure of un-ironic candor, despite the drummer’s silly Vanilla Ice haircut/erection rising behind white-rimmed Buddy Holly nerd glasses, and the requisite strutting front man. TRUE, that doesn’t sound very un-ironic, but they “rock hard” in the most convincing fashion. Indeed, it’s a muscle-rippling sonic fuck affair that may leave you unwittingly sore, but then again, I guess those who return know what they want and where they want it (in the ear hole). –Jeremy Krinsley
