Darren Weiss is the former drummer for the Bay Area band Girls, who has since started this delightful, two-person group with his childhood friend, bassist Danny Presant. PAPA is very much indie rock and feels a bit like a blend of the nostalgic Father John Misty but with more of a Divine Fits tempo. Put Me To Work in particular is a piano-pounding, rhythm-heavy tune that whips itself into a frenzy at about three-quarters of the way through, making it perfect for senseless thrashing about.

It feels like a good old-fashioned summer party song. The song you put on when the garage is spilling over with dancing bodies and the humidity is reaching a level where you could almost start your own rain storm.  Articles of clothing must come off to avoid heat stroke. Eyes closed, head back, hands up.
