Social Studies



Social Studies 'Holler Boys'


Social Studies 'Time Bandit (One AM Radio Remix)'


I'm suddenly 17 years old again listening to Social Studies. I'm bouncing around in my girl friends' beat up Civic driving through the streets of Miami, listening to cassettes- well not just any old cassettes, but, MIX TAPES. These mix tapes were filled with the lovely twee sounds of bands like Velocity Girl, That Dog, The Softies, Tiger Trap, The Blow, Tuscadero...the list goes on. Sometimes some girly Indie pop is all you need to realize the world isn't so bad and that you too once cut your own hair and you didn't have a care in the world because all that mattered was those mix tapes and your girl.

Social Studies debut LP, Wind Up Wooden Heart, is out now on Antenna Farm Records.
