I'm not sure what it is these days but I am a sucker for girl group harmonies once again. Not since high school when I spent a lot of time listening to That Dog, The Sundays, The Softies, Go Sailor!, Sleater Kinney et al. have I enjoyed this type of music.
The Splinters are an East Bay band that has come up the old fashioned way playing shows and now releasing their first recorded music on a limited 7" on Double Negative records. A handful of the records will actually come in jackets hand designed by the lovely ladies of The Splinters. Check out the MP3 version of the A-side track 'Splintered Bridges.'
