Review: TKTTSM — TKTTSM

What confusion of genre would look like if someone actually painted it.

What confusion of genre would look like if someone actually painted it.

If the band is an acronym for anything, it could very well be “The Killer Tittering Triage of Sado-Masochism,” since this band is both cute and disgusting. Girl pop that could very well frame a Mandy Moore rom-com morphs surprisingly into punk that could complement a Slits or Breeders concert. TKTTSM is one of ten thousand bands to crawl out of the primordial slime of Brooklyn over the past several years, but they are one of the few that are extremely hard to pin down. If you like pop or punk or shoegaze or any mixture of the three this band may be the one you’re looking for.
