    They stick to their guns, and they end up emphasising their rough-around-the-edges strengths.

    Leave Me Alone is giddy with joy, cackling with sun-drenched vibes and that captivating youthful energy, and it’s impossible to listen to tracks like Easy, Chili Town and San Diego without leeching off it.

    The best moments on Leave Me Alone occur when Cosials and Perrote are going all-out, belting together without restraint.

    You may leave Hinds’ debut with a hangover but you’ll likely be smiling. Either way, a fuzzy glow is guaranteed.

    Not quite a party record, Leave Me Alone fuels messy rock with sunny guitar lines.

    Adhering to basic rock formalism, the all-women quartet captures a raw primitivism that’s undeniably appealing in an era when most mainstream rock acts are as manicured as Bravo housewives. Unfortunately, too many songs like “I’ll Be Your Man,” a sleepy (hungover?) stab at hooky, sunshine rock, seem like first drafts.

Well aware that their voices aren't all that but it matters not, this is rock n' roll. The album, along with their live performances may not be the most technically sound, but their mood is totally infectious, and its a damn happy one. What they lack vocally they more than make up for with jangling guitars and just a plain to see love of everything they do. Gracias. Expand

It is not a particularly ambitious record, but for those looking for lively, boisterous lo-fi garage rock in 2016, Hinds have got you covered. Expand
