Tracklist: The Bandana Splits - Sometimes

Po-mo takes on retro girl group tropes are hardly the music world's newest invention - indeed you could argue it was a seam being mined as far back as the Three Degrees, who formed at the time when the Supremes, Shangri-Las and co were on top but didn't go international for nearly another decade. Brooklyn trio The Bandana Splits may have the Andrews Sisters styling dead on but something about their August-due debut wanders beyond those pre-set boundaries with killer harmonies, Northern soul-inflected production and general effervescence, not to mention that hidden away in the trio is Dawn Landes, who released a well worth the effort album in 2008's Fireproof.
