Bookends- Far Away But Around LP. The Bookends are a two-piece, girl group showcasing shimmering melody driven guitar pop songs played with a heavy dose of 60’s garage rock finesse. ‘Far Away But Around’ bonds the girl pop sounds of bands like the 18.104.22.168, early Donnas and The Shangri-Las with the fuzz frenzied feel of 60’s garage groovers like the Count Five and the Swamp Rats. Stellar twelve songer here from two gals who blend amazing vocal harmonies with insanely catchy guitar hooks. Fun listen. Import from Italy.
