I received an e-mail from The Barettas last week asking me to have a listen to what they called "rough edged pop numbers". You can imagine how favorably I thought of that description but, ever curious, I decided to give them the benefit of the doubt. Imagine my delight at finding them to be just about precisely what they described--pop-like songs with enough grit to them that they don't set your teeth on edge and enough lyrical spark to capture your interest. I'm sharing here the video for Touché so that you can have a look at the ladies getting down as well as enjoying their sound. It's not quite punk and not quite pop, occupying a territory with a lot of attitude and enough fuzz to keep the music from being "chick rock". As an added bonus, you can download Touché and Black Sheep for free from The Barettas' Band Camp profile.
