What do Batgirl, Miss America and Lieutenant Uhura have in common? Not an awful lot to be honest but that could be all about to change as Molly Shannon, Molly Shannon (owing to a childhood love of repetition) have gathered the delectable beauties together as song titles for their debut album ‘You Think Yr The Doctor, I Think I’m The Sheriff’. There is more than a hint of madness to MSMS, which I always find to be an appealing characteristic when it’s twinned with arch creativity. As a result MSMS will never be labelled a generic indie band. When you’ve got melodies appearing from nowhere in a mosaic of sound from the asylum it’s time to sit up and start taking notes. ‘Bianca Montale’ is as close as the band get to single material because it comes fully kitted out with shiny chords. ‘Nichelle Nichols’ is much more frightening for connoisseurs of mainstream audio which as you’d expect means it turns out to be a bundle of roguish fun. The singing when it arrives after 90 seconds is Native American in nature and with that in mind I am about to climb the highest peak in the land so as to send smoke signals announcing this great new band. Oh crumbs, it’s dark outside, maybe I’ll wait until morning. Image courtesy of Kyle M. Peterson, Kyle M. Peterson. KD
