Oakland all-girl rockers The Hot Toddies are like a tasty sex on the beach: bright, sunshine pop orange juice, indie tang cranberry juice and punchy rock riffs that make everything feel alright is the vodka. Mario Hernandez (of Ciao Bella & From Bubblegum To Sky), the mind behind Kids on a Crime Spree, is one of those music geeks that knows the most obscure facts about stuff like tube amplifiers and out-of-print 45s. But that's why his album We Love You So Bad is so damn good. Hernandez knows his stuff and garnered a vintage sound on the eight tracks, which were recorded on analog tape. The grungy pop-punk of Burnt Palms is quickly gaining a local following for good reason. Clara Nieto and Christina Riley are passionate about reviving the Monterey music scene and their passion is just as infectious as their 90s' garage rock lathered with tasty hooks. [AJ]
