The Beths – Future Me Hates Me (album review) 8/10

Future Me Hates Me gives me the same feeling that Diet Cig’s I Swear I’m Good At This did. It finds that sweet spot between pop-punk and power-pop as lead singer Elizabeth Stoke delivers the goods across ten tracks. And I’d be lying if I said her Kiwi accent didn’t add something to my enjoyment.

From the opening chords of Great No One you’ll find your feet tapping and head bobbing as Stokes tugs on your heart with a mix of humor and sorrow. And I’d be remiss if I didn’t comment on how much the backing vocals/harmonies add to the proceedings with the title track and Happy Unhappy being a prime examples of that.

They will be touring the States this fall with a stop in Chicago on 10/5. I’m going to go out on a limb and say this will be a fun one.

Beguiling tune this is…and it has a real bridge!
