This San Francisco quintet's third release starts off modestly with "Ginger Tea," but the next four songs are excellent examples of grungy, female-fronted alt-rock. ES Pitcher's vocals are deadpan when they need to be and aching otherwise; melodies are strong, but not overbearing; and compelling hooks and riffs land in all the right places.
