    This sugary trio supposedly formed over pizza and pop a few years back, and while that almost sounds too good to be true, it's also fitting; WWII's songs are just begging to be the soundtrack to an evening of food and fun.

    There's not a whole lot on WWII that thousands of bands haven't already said on the topics of girls, fun, girls and being a teenager, but White Wires do it so joyously, and with such big hearts, it's impossible not to be won over by them.

    If you're looking for some great lo fi fun, WWII delivers, but anyone who wants to hear some top-shelf pop-centric rock & roll really owes it to themselves to give this a listen.

    Although The White Wires put a fun, sunshiny spin on things, this type of music has been played out by countless bands ever since The Ramones perfected the formula in the mid-70′s. But if you're just looking for something rowdy, fast and fun for the drive to your favorite party spot, put on WWII and crank it up!

    Unfortunately, despite White Wires' earnestness, likability, and knack for hooks, WWII is an album that is threatened to be overshadowed not just by albums from all over the musical spectrum, but also by other albums on Dirtnap itself.

    I was kind of hoping for more hooks, but sometimes forget that every record can't be Singles Going Steady. When the White Wires release a greatest hit collection that might be just what I'm looking for, but in the meantime, WWIII will do.
