REVIEW: Original Artyfacts - Lovely digital EP (self-released)

Here's some bubbly, surfy, party garage-pop from Buenos Aires.  Original Artyfacts (who borrow their namesake from the famous Nuggets compilation) are right in line with many of the American purveyors of the garage genre, but, not surprisingly, lean towards a sixties aesthetic in sound and song structure complete with melodious vocals, middle eights, twanging guitars and hand-clapping rhythms.  The opening track has an especially Beatles-esque feel.  These three songs present a very well-formed-albeit-familiar concept and the songwriting is strong and "cheeky" in all the right ways.  Nice work, lads!  Get it here.
