The Lovely Bad Things, who I presume take similar thesis-statement license with their name as Cosentino does with Best Coast, aren't there yet. Lead track, "I Want You To Go Away" means exactly what it says, emphasizing the notion of separation with unacademic dismissals like, "I don't give a shit." This line rhymes with the pedantic and satisfying, "I don't know what I'm searchin' for but I know that you're not it." Garage pop that refused to trade its edges, "I Want You To Go Away" is a soaring break-up song, written in the basement with a chorus that heads for the roof, backing vocals chasing up the same musical thirds as the thrust of the melody. The final tones are the echoing of fuzzy guitar reverb, the last sounds rattling around the contours of a relationship that is absolutely - with punctuation - over.
