I Don't Care
Summer Twins ”I Don’t Care”
There is probably nothing more I appreciate about Southern California than its beautiful ability to produce some of the nicest music in the world. Those perky guitar chords and chirpy melodies. It must be a byproduct of the weather and the palm trees. And the over-abundance of good Mexican food. It must.
When I lived in LA, I always kept K-EARTH 101 as a preset. People like me, born before the 1990s but not before 1980, can always turn to oldies when nothing satiates us. I know when I don’t feel like listening to Lady Gaga (which is all the time if you listen to mainstream radio) or Gavin DeGraw (also do not have a high capacity for hearing his lyrics. Sorrynotsorry), I can turn on an oldies station or play music from The Mamas and the Papas or Simon and Garfunkel and it actually resonates with me.
Summer Twins come from the same generation as me. Raised on a steady diet of their father’s rock and roll albums, they’re now re-creating a sound that I think would be cool if the current young generation could resonate with when they’re my age. Though I suppose there isn’t anything truly wrong with letting Taio Cruz and Ellie Goulding define what will be “classic oldies” in ten years.
Yes. I suppose.
Anyway, the rock and roll dream thrives with these two sisters and moreover, with their rad label, Burger Records, based in Orange County. “I Don’t Care” is also downloadable for no money whatsoever. So if you needed some modern day satiation, you’ve really got your work cut out for you.
