Tracklist: The Understudies - Everyone Deserves At Least One Summer Of Love

More superior indiepop, here one week away from the gathering of the cardiganed clans at Indietracks. The Understudies have been ploughing a furrow of Edwyn Collins-flavoured melodic heartache for a little while now but this 7" on Odd Box might be their most fulfilled, and hence most fulfilling, exultation. Romantic and heartaching while positive in a way only young Morrissey and fey Scotsmen (see also Roddy Frame) can seemingly otherwise pull off. It's not cynical in the slightest, really, it's open minded to the possibilities and pull of the season.
