Doozies – “Me + You” & Flower Girl – “Lovely Disease” (Stereogum Premiere)

Twin melodious garage rock machines Doozies (from DC) and Flower Girl (from NYC) have a split LP called Live In The Basement coming soon via Aloe Music, and they’ve already shared a pair of fantastic tracks, “Through The Cracks” and “Nightmare.” Here are two more: “Me + You” finds the Doozies adding surf-rock strains to an undeniable Beatles-esque bash-out, while “Lovely Disease” is slower and prettier without quite decelerating into prom slowdance material. Fans of no-nonsense pop-rock with teeth should proceed quickly to this music.
