Dimestore Dolls teamed up with the remaining members of Fountains of Wayne on their new single You Are the Fix. Still mourning the passing of the beloved Adam Schlesinger, the single recalls the indie-rock-pop sensibility of the late icon. On the outset Beach Boys style backing vocals give way to singer Buchanans post punk contrast. Sexually empowered and ripe with conviction, she grabs you with infectious appeal. Hailing from the northeast underground scene, the band brings tight execution with an energetic performance.
Buchanan wrote the song with Schlesinger and Dimestore Dolls have released it posthumously. The single will be included on an upcoming album due out later this year. With indie rock swagger it blends somewhere between Band of Horses and Best Coast, illuminated by Buchanan’s signature delivery. More recently it connects with rocking releases by Snail Mail and Soccer Mommy. A solid indie rock offering by a re-emerging talent, Dimestore Dolls are worth the buzz.
