Prominent Phoenix-based Fairy Bones are powered by brash frontwoman Chelsey Louise, whose in-your-face delivery is the octane that powers this band on their crafty, well-produced songs. The titles say it all: “No One Can Suffer Like I Can” delivers a classic New Wave vibe that’s propelled by fun, uptempo drums. And the song’s singalong potential is obvious, making it clear that Louise and company can get a crowd involved. Her mega-’tude continues on “bullshit, ur a niceguy” and “Pink Plastic Cups” where she shouts “You’re cute, but damn are you dumb!” We only wish her backing band delivered an equal amount of fizz. Unfortunately, the guitar, for instance, squanders its opportunities.
