REVIEW: Slushy - All The Rad Dudes (Manic Static)

by Steve Wichelecki

Chicago's lo-fi sweethearts, Slushy charms the listener with yummy bubblegum pop, a sunny potpourri of garage, surf and '60s rock. The tunes from this stripped-down duo can best be described as having that take-your-best-girl-by-the-hand-and-stroll-down-to-the-ice-cream-parlor-because-it's-Saturday-and-there's-nothing-to-do-but-have-fun sound. Think sunglasses and the beach, record stores and good, cheap food. Think minimal drums keeping time under reverb-laden Fender amps and warm double-tracked vocals. "All The Rad Dudes" is a happy collection of simple songs about simple fun stuff, from having a crush to hanging out with pals and loving The Beatles. See Slushy live Sunday, March 17 at Quenchers with Magic Milk, Options, Cedar Skies and Two Carolines. Get it here.
