The Soviettes are not a “chick” band, they are a fantastic punk band that happen to have a majority of female members. I can’t even remember how I discovered them, but their stuff is probabably some of the most upbeat stuff that I’ve listed to. Think Sleater-Kinney meets The Gossip. Or something like that.
Their songs are pretty short and catchy. If having everything is overwhelming, I’d reccomend the album LP II first.
