It's difficult not to be taken with Be Your Own Pet; they play an immediately appealing brand of youthful, unhinged punk-pop that takes tips from the Buzzcocks and Blondie, as well as both low-fi DIY bands and contemporary noise-rock acts like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. As the five tracks on their 2006 SUMMER SENSATION EP (released on Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace! label) demonstrate, the band, comprised of four teenage high-school friends, specializes in two-minute blasts of manic rock-&-roll energy that are reckless, uplifting, dirty, and beautiful. The vocals of frontwoman Jemina Pearl give the whole EP a sweet bite and a hooligan's vibe that will help keep it in any rock fan's disc player straight through the summer to the first day of school.
this is a pretty average ep, i think that there were better songs that they could have put on here, but however! this is still pretty good, in typical BYOP form its real high energy, almost to the point of being over the top. my fave tracks would be bicycle bicycle, and take that walk. a good buy for fans.
this is one of those eps of summer, one that you can just put on and chill out to, as a quick way of getting in the mood to party and the like. some wicked songs on here, such as Fire Department, and Bicycle Bicyle, which features on their be your own pet album. a must have for all fans out there!
