A damn fine slice of warm and inspired fuzz pop

Though they tread the thin line between radio-ready fodder and under-the-radar obscurity, Static of the Gods' "Peluche" is a damn fine slice of warm and inspired fuzz pop, the type of attention grabbing single that can only lead to bigger things. Singer Jen Johnson has this familair, welcoming voice; more in line with the Cardigans Nina Persson than a more showy frontwoman like Shirley Manson. The Boston outfit sounds like a slightly more revved-up Velocity Girls—never a bad thing. MICHAEL MANNHEIMER.
