The only pertinent info I was able to find on Minneapolis' Harlows was a 1999 article indicating that around that time the group had released a double CD featuring songs from four of their independent releases. Unfortunately, they didn't make it onto my radar until last year, but the eight-song cassette I'm sharing is of considerable compensation. A co-ed quartet, The Harlows dealt in buoyant, indie guitar pop in the mold of the Spinanes and Versus. Singer Rachel has a vocal timbre not far disconnected from Sarah Shannon of Velocity Girl. Excellent songs, which by the way often hearken of Johnny Marr's chiming guitar-work. This was beyond a pleasant surprise.
