Sahara Hotnights:: Kiss & Tell (album review)

The Female Hives. The Swedish Donnas. Whatever you want to call them, the four women who make up Sahara Hotnights certainly know their way around vintage riffs and leather jackets. They take enormous leads from early ’80s new-wave bands like Blondie and Romeo Void. But what sounds great on paper feels like hollow tribute on closer inspection. Singer Maria Andersson’s obvious difficulty with the English language gets in the way (and not even in a cute way) when she’s trying to rock out on songs like “Hot Night Crash” and “Mind Over Matter.” Others are so clunky it’s hard to have a good time listening to them. Not so hot. Stick to their previous release Jennie Bomb it’s a much better effort. (via E!)
