Henry's Dress - Bust 'Em Green

Like it was rubbed in dirt then dipped in sugar, the balance between noise and pop is ideal on the band's last release. Ridding their sound of the slight melancholy of their self-titled release, this one is more on the cheery side.

4. Hey Allison

Henry's Dress - [Self-Titled]

Henry's Dress' first real release after a couple of 7" splits and singles. A great blend of feel good pop tunes and messy feedback, altering between boy and girl vocals.
