If you feel a toothache coming, it's probably from the sugar rush of giddy "twee-punk" delivered by Atlanta's Gold-Bears (yes, named after the delicious gummy candy). The band's sophomore release, Dalliance, is filled with cacophonous reverb, jangley guitars, and lo-fi fuzz-pop melodies that draws references to The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and The Wedding Present. Dalliance opens with the anthemic "Yeah, Tonight," a proper pop song that sets the agenda right away with sharp melodies and even sharper guitars, whizzing by in less than three minutes.
